The dancers will learn proper terminology through a center warm-up, stretch, and combination with music. Then continue with across the floor progressions. The final day of camp, during the last 5-10 minutes of class, the dancers will do a mini-show at the studio to showcase what they learned that week. Please invite family and friends! Videography and photography are more than welcome during the performance.

This camp will run 40 minutes each day. We will focus on both ballet technique and jazz technique. The beginning of each class will be structured around a proper warm-up and stretch, terminology lesson, across the floor progressions, then choreography. During all sections of class both ballet and jazz technique will be taught. Ballet is described as the solid foundation for all other forms of dance. It also forms the basis for discipline, creativity, and appreciation of dance in the art form. Proper turn out of the legs, posture, placement and alignment will be emphasized. Students will learn ballet vocabulary through barre work and center work while building strength, flexibility, energy, and athleticism. Jazz develops style, strength, and versatility in a dancer. This portion of class will also emphasize technique, terminology, flexibility, and proper execution of isolations of the body, and performance skills. The final day of camp, during the last 5-10 minutes of class, the dancers will do a mini-show at the studio to showcase what they learned that week. Please invite family and friends! Videography and photography are more than welcome during the performance.
