A special camp for children ages 7 and up who have little or no training in ballet and other dance forms taught by WDA’s very popular teacher, Karina Banks.
In two action packed weeks of camp, children will learn the basics of Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop and Modern dance in a fun and creative atmosphere, focusing on basic positions and movements and allowing for creativity. Each day will include a warm-up, dance phrases in four styles, improvisational exercises and a break for snack during which we will learn about some of the greatest dancers and dances of all time. At the end of camp we will perform our new talents for family and friends
