ABOUT

Designed for dancers both with and without experience, Demi Soloist camps dive wholeheartedly into their weekly theme through a dynamic mix of dance, enrichment, and all the enjoyable extras.

Dancers engage in dance classes within their age cohorts and come together for games and additional activities, fostering a sense of camaraderie and shared experiences, while learning movement suited to their development!

 

Each day, dancers embrace confidence through ballet classes tailored to hone in on current abilities and embrace new skills. In our "variations" classes, we have fun exploring choreography, characters, and acting. Through engaging art projects, dancers express their individuality while learning the beginnings of stagecraft & costuming. Inspiration abounds in our age-appropriate "dance history" activities, where storytelling and hands-on exploration come together. And amidst the excitement, there is still ample time for play and fostering friendships through games and time outsideTo nurture both minds and bodies, we pause for a daily snack (and lunch for full-day campers), ensuring ample time to recharge!

Soloists Intensive

ABOUT

Each week-long summer intensive provides a full immersion into the empowering world of dance and all that it encompasses. Through daily technique classes and engaging workshops, the opportunities to learn and progress are endless! While our intensives are ballet-focused, they also serve as a platform for dancers to explore new genres, artistic expression, performance elements, and the cultural context of ballet and the performing arts. In addition to all classes dance, dancers have the opportunity to work hands-on and fully express their unique artistic perspectives through helping to create performance backdrops, costumes, and more! 

Each day, dancers take level-appropriate technique and movement classes in styles of dance that play crucial roles in both modern and traditional ballet performances. Additional classes and hands-on workshops vary daily, and allow dancers to delve deeper and gain even more insight into backstage performance elements. At week’s end, all we have learned and worked on is showcased in an informal in-studio performance for dancer's families.

EXPERIENCE/LEVELING

We welcome dancers of all levels, from little to no experience through advanced dancers. On the first day of the week, dancers are placed in class levels that align with their abilities to ensure they can thrive and get the most out of the week. When evaluating levels for dancers, we consider both their technical proficiency and age.

While technique classes are taken within individual skill levels, all participants come together for additional workshops and social time, allowing the chance to learn appropriately, yet still enjoy time with all friends old and new.
