Why attend a dance camp?

In addition to dance, many camps also offer other performing arts programs such as music to broaden the camp experience and expose your child to a variety of exciting creative crafts which encourage imagination and artistry. Dancers are also introduced to and encouraged to try traditional outdoor camp activities like horseback riding, swimming, and canoeing.

When considering a dance camp for your child, be sure to ask about any aspect of the camp that interests your family, including the camp’s philosophy, history, programs and fees.

Here are a few more specific questions to keep in mind during your search:

  • What are the camper to staff ratios?
  • What are the qualifications of the instructors?
  • What happens if my child is injured? What precautions are in place?
