Camp: Info & Schedule

Information

WHY WE LOVE CAMPS
Camps are great way for students to test out new styles, without having to commit to a year long team, performance fees, or costume dues. It’s also an excellent way to improve in the areas of dance/cheer/tumbling that the dancers are already familiar with. There is also an option to
stay free of charge at the pool after classes each day!  More info regarding the pool with each age group below!  We offer camps for ages 2-18, BOYS and GIRLS welcome at ALL camps!

  • Boys attending an ages 7 up cheer camp or jazz/ballet camp attend FREE!
  • Details about camp (reminders what to expect etc) will be emailed out to registrants 7-10 days prior to each camp.
