Summer Programs

TINY TOTS

Our signature summer day camp, Tiny Tots, provides an exciting, unique, and imaginative introduction to dance and theatre for preschoolers ages 3-6. Introductory lessons in different styles of song and dance are combined with educational activities, imagination-based learning techniques, storytelling, and play to provide children with an engaging introduction to the arts. With several themes to choose from, each Tiny Tots camp is designed to be playful and fun — find one (or a few!) that best suits your preschooler.

All camps will end with a celebratory showcase.

JUNIOR SERIES

Introducing our newest set of day camps, the Junior Series! Designed for children between the ages of 7 and 12, each Junior Series camp is tailored to provide an integrated introduction to dance, song, and theatre. Back by popular demand, this summer we will have two Popstar Performer Camps! This camp offers dancers the opportunity to star in their very own recorded song and music video.
