Get your kids out of the house this summer and into a camp designed around their interests. If your kids love to dance then give them something special to look forward to when school is out. Dance can give your child a boost in confidence and self-esteem by learning a new skill. It keeps them active and teaches them that exercise can be fun and beneficial. Best of all, it allows them to meet other children in a community outside of school. Making friends who share the same passions and goals can be uplifting.
Creative Edge dance studio offers a dance camp in Burlington, Ontario. Kids enrolled in the dance camp work in groups appropriate to their age and skill level to learn a variety of dance styles and techniques taught by professional dancers. All levels include training in ballet, jazz, acrobatics, lyrical, and musical theatre. The summer is broken up into 6 weeks with unique sessions, so they can do more than one week if they want to since each has a different theme.
The overall theme of this year’s dance camp is “Once upon a Dancer”. It is entirely dedicated to exploring the wonder of fairy tales. Each session explores the themes and ideas of a particular fairy tale and the campers learn the dance techniques to express these ideas through dance.
The sessions are dedicated to the fairy tales “Three Little Pigs”, “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Rapunzel”, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”, and “Peter Pan”. This is a wonderful and innovative way for your children to dive into the world of the most celebrated literary tales and bring new life their understanding through expression in dance.
There is a program called the “Creative Edge Kinder Camp” for your preschool dancers at home. The kinder campers are involved in as many of the regular camp activities that are adjusted for their age group. The kinder campers interact with the older children throughout the morning periods and at the end of each week they put on a special presentation of what they learned. It is a great pre-school dance camp that will spark their imagination and keep them fit.
Get your kids into dance camp and out of the house this summer. The friends they will make, the skills they will learn, and the adventures they will have will last a lifetime.
