See what's new for summer 2018:

Sleeping Beauty

Dancers will learn and perform an adaptation of the famous ballet, Sleeping Beauty, while gaining a deeper understanding of dance history and traditional ballet narrative.

Dance Ninjas

In this energetic exploration of dance styles, dancers will improve their ninja skills. Throughout the week students will learn to walk with sneaky silence, sprint and pounce like a cat, and create a mysterious "dance of the ninjas." All black attire is welcome and encouraged.

Dance & Film

Explore new ideas in choreography on and off camera in this exciting new camp. Students will study choreography created for film and then work in groups to create and edit their own dance films. All films will be presented to friends and family the final day of class.

Youth Program Showcase

A round of applause to all the dancers and volunteers who helped our multiple Showcases to run smoothly this weekend.
