Summer Dance-Recreation Camp for Girls  

Classes in Lyrical, Hip Hop, Jazz, and Musical Theatre  

We received word from Mount St. Mary's that dance camp will be canceled this Summer. We are so sad for all of our dancers, but their safety is our top priority.

MSM will be sending us a refund, once this is received we will reimburse families that have already made payments towards camp.

Those that are students enrolled in regular classes will receive an account credit on their portal.Those that do not take regular classes during our season and only attend camp with us will receive a check in the mail.

We are so sad that we will not get to see everyone this summer, this is the first time ever that dance camp has been canceled. Please know we are thinking of you all, and we miss all of our dancers tremendously. We cannot wait until it is safe to resume classes, but until then we will continue to offer classes online. If anyone is interested in taking classes over the summer please feel free to contact us with your questions.

Stay safe!

Dance Camp will foster aesthetic, technical, intellectual, and creative development in every dancer.  Dancers will have the opportunity to participate in studio-based dance practices enhancing their knowledge of the discipline and art of dance. Dancers will develop an understanding and appreciation for the creative processes of dance performance. Each participant will demonstrate a sense of commitment and positive attitude that will foster creative processes and lead to effective decision-making in directing their own end of the camp dance performance.

This camp will nurture artistic leadership in dancers through opportunities to perform, choreograph, teach, and learn about stage management.  By the end of Dance Camp the dancers will develop improved communication skills and will have developed new dance techniques.
