Monday campers can expect to stretch with the “big kids” and then break into just elementary aged students. The staff will begin teaching basic technique and immediately start working on the ballet routine. After lunch, the campers will get to do arts and crafts which are ALWAYS incorporated into the Thursday Showcase! After arts and crafts, students will finish their ballet piece and re-group with the “big kids” to review their morning group routine.
Tuesday, the eager campers will review the group routine with the Middle and High School dancers and then review their very own ballet piece. It’s usually Jazz time on Tuesday morning! After lunch, again arts and crafts, with the afternoon focused on finishing their Jazz routine. At the end of the day the elementary dancers will showcase their ballet and jazz for the “big kids” to show how much they have learned in two day!
The rest of the week works very similar with different arts and crafts, different routines and a day of getting ready for the big finale on Thursday. Thursday’s showcase typically consists of 15 pieces between the Tiny Tots, Minis and Junior dancers, with a big production at the end featuring an anticipated 150 dancers!
