Calling all inspiring artists! Learn about the art of dance through ballet, creative movement, modern dance and crafts. Children will learn about art concepts such as negative space, sculpting, and texture through their daily crafts and will get to integrate these concepts into their creative movement (ages 3.5-6) or modern dance (ages 6+) class. This camp builds technique and artistry for the young dancer. Wear dance attire and bring ballet shoes. Bare feet will be required for the creative movement/modern portion so girls should wear convertible or footless tights or wear leggings instead of full-footed tights. Bring a nut-free snack and drink.
