This week is for the serious dancer age 12-15 who wishes to study dance in a similar format to what is offered as a part of our curricular Upper School program. Students will take classes in ballet, modern, jazz, musical theater, and also have daily discussions about dance life! The week will culminate in a finale performance on Friday July 26th at 5PM in the Garland Auditorium. We believe that the arts are an essential part of a full and satisfying life. Exposure to the arts sharpens the skills of observation and opens young minds to infinite possibilities.This camp is designed to engage students intellectually, physically, and emotionally.

Fun at summer arts camp!
