If you seriously love to dance, you’ll have the time of your life!

Why dance at Ross Creek? 
“This  summer camp brought about the most significant growth I have ever seen in a group of dancers over the course of the two week period.  I think this is a result of a supportive atmosphere encouraging exploration and risk-taking, relaxing and fun surroundings to balance the intensity of the dance schedule, positive and cooperative faculty who are equally accomplished as they are enthusiastic about dance and pedagogy.”                                       – Belinda McGuire, Contemporary Dance teacher, DSD 2013, 2014, 2015. 


2020 Summer Dance Intensives at the Ross Creek Centre
In 2020, we are delighted that we are able to welcome some of our fabulous Dance Summer Dance Faculty to join us and they are taking a thoughtful approach to keeping dancers safe while getting them back into shape and even working towards great new skills in time for fall studio classes.

Small class sizes ensure individual coaching and help to create attentive and supportive rehearsal environments. The program combines education in modern and ballet technique and choreography in a non-competitive setting with live accompaniment. After class, we encourage recreation and relaxation on our 178-acre property, with rustic cabins, walking trails, freshly made food- grown on site and beach trips supported by our highly trained camp staff.

Dance at Ross Creek augments a dancer’s ongoing training, giving him or her an intense program in ballet and modern dance along with body conditioning and stretch and strength conditioning, while also encouraging a creative approach to the world through other arts workshops throughout the program to give their bodies a chance to rest and to encourage bonding. This intense and inspiring mix of dance and camp creates life-changing experiences for young dancers. We are committed to the study of dance as part of a healthy, full life for all. We are equally committed to the development of dance professionals, and our Dance programs serve both kinds of students well.

​Former Ross Creek Dance program students have gone on to study in all fields, including professional dance training schools such as Toronto Dance Theatre and Juilliard, and to have careers with Parsons Dance, Bern Ballet, MOCEAN Dance, and many other professional companies.

Visits: Family and friends are welcome to visit Ross Creek. However, while camp is in session, visitors are normally asked to only come for a tour, to visit the gallery, etc. Visits can be disruptive to the students’ experience on many levels, including disruption of classes, meal times and social time at camp.

Weekend and beach trip: Dancers will work on the site-specific work on Saturday, to be performed during the final presentation and take Sunday as the beach trip, or reversed, depending on the forecast.
