Dance a Story
Your little one can explore movement possibilities with a focus on storytelling. Using personal experience and imagination, children will spend time expressing stories in their bodies and minds. In this fun-filled class, children develop large and fine motor skills, coordination, rhythm, and listening skills as they go on their creative adventures. Taught by Denise Gagner.
Dance + Photography*
Experience the intersection of dance and photography! Participants will use photography to consider how bodies create shape and transform from 3-dimensional experiences to 2-dimensional images. Teaching Artist and professional photographer Blake Nellis teaches this camp. Participants will receive a link to photographs taken during the workshop by the Instructor and professional photographer, Blake Nellis.
*A digital device with photography capabilities is recommended but not required.
Variety Dance Camp
In Variety Camps, participants will dip their toes in different dance styles and find new ways of expressing themselves through movement. In this year’s camp, students will learn Capoeira with Guerreiro, Modern with Jennifer Ilse, and Hip Hop with Cecil Neal. At the end of the workshop, students will show off their new moves in an informal showing for their caregivers.
