About Summer Camp:

Moving in the Spirit’s Summer Dance Camp, for young people ages 8-14, combines dance instruction with creative youth development workshops and adventurous field trips. The two-week program provides campers with a safe environment where they can have fun while learning dance technique, developing life skills and increasing confidence. Committed to personalized attention, our teachers nurture creativity within each camper and serve as role models. At the end of camp, students perform a special show for family and friends.

The camp will consist of:

  • Dance technique classes in Hip-Hop, African, Jazz and Modern
  • Game Time and Craft Projects
  • Health and Life Skills classes
  • Recreational field trips
  • A public performance on the final day of camp
