Ballet & Irish Dance Camp
Each day will include both a Ballet and Tap Dance section.
The Ballet portion of this camp will include daily barre, center, stretching, adagio and allegro work, and will focus on both a physical and intellectual understanding of how and why each movement should be executed. Strength, flexibility, balance, poise and musicality will be developed along with an understanding of the principles of Ballet technique.
Students will become more self-confident in their ability to create and more comfortable collaborating and expressing ideas - key leadership skills.
Students will experience an overall sense of fluidity, strength, and confidence in their everyday movement. They will expand their movement vocabulary, sweat, laugh and have fun!
The last day of camp, parents are invited for the last half hour for a 30 minute presentation showing what the students have learned.
