Ballet Camp - Grade One/Two Cecchetti
Dancers, ages 6-adult, will get noticeably stronger and stretchier as they study ballet theory and worship the Lord through ballet and lyrical dance. Turns adds to their repertoire of advanced moves while stretching gives their muscles a time to unwind. Ballet facts and foundational steps will be covered. Choreography based on Scripture will be built into a presentation for family or friends on Friday at 11am.
This focused ballet camp, taught by Miss Madeline, is perfect for the new dancer wanting a concentrated introduction to ballet with some lyrical interludes, as well as the intermediate student wanting to further her skills in a Christian environment. Those testing for Cecchetti Grade One will be prepared for their exam. Cost is only $140 for 15 hours of instruction. Dates are June 17-21 from 9am to 12pm.
Ballet Camp - Grade Three Cecchetti
This camp is for intermediate ballet dancers ages 9 and up.
For dancers interested in intense ballet we invite you to study Cecchetti Grade Two from 1pm - 4pm each afternoon (except Sunday). Whether looking to test, or just wanting to experience serious ballet and a lot of it, this class is a great opportunity to concentrate and improve ballet technique with some lyrical combinations on the side. We will focus on perfecting the Cecchetti exercises, memorizing theory and French terms, and stretching. Our goal is to increase self-control and have even more to offer the Lord, and you will see improvement in most, if not all, aspects of your dance! The cost is $140 and dates are June 29 - July 3 from 1pm to 4pm, with different times on Sunday.
Little girls, ages 4-9, will love this beautiful and royal camp. They will start out with ballet technique and creative movement with Miss Maddy. Then they'll work on music skills through singing, percussion, and listening. This fun class, led on guitar and cajon, gives them a nice break from dancing and a chance to hide some verses in their hearts. Then those princesses will get right back to creative movement, a royal snack, and preparation of a lovely, musical story for their parents on Friday at 3pm. Girls will dress up and get to take princess portraits as well.
We'll start at 1pm, and be worn out by 3:30. This will be a memorable and imaginative week of worshipful, joyful dance and music! Cost is only $120 for 12.5 hours of camp. The dates are June 24-28 from 1-3:30pm each day.
Big dancers, ages 9-adult, are welcome to join us as we tap, jazz, and musical theatre our way through classic musicals like The Greatest Showman. This camp is a great opportunity to build on the ballet or contemporary technique we’ve already developed and branch out into a variety of high-energy dance forms. Dancers can use jazz shoes and tap shoes (which can be borrowed), in addition to the usual leotards and leggings. Cost is only $120 and camp is June 24-28 from 5-7:30pm.
Guys and girls, ages 6-adult, will get their groove on at this energetic workshop!
From 9am to 3pm on Saturday, date TBD, we'll be having a great time in the Lord, dancing our hearts out, and learning from the three incredible guest artists below. A variety of styles will be taught.
This is perfect for new street dancers as well as those who have been dancing for years. All ages can come groove for God's glory.
