Our summer classes feature the same high-quality curriculum as our yearly programs, all centered on a fun, relevant theme. Summer is a great time to make progress in technique, make new friends, or try a new dance style! Day camps and technique classes will include the ultimate, age-appropriate experience for all ages. The summer session concludes with an informal “Summer Showcase” for dancers to perform for families and friends at Harrer Park Shelter.
