Little ballerinas enjoy a week of dancing, crafts and a mini-performance based on the story ballet TheSleepingBeauty. Story Ballet Camp engages children ages 3 & 4 as they learn developmentally appropriate pre-ballet technique and explore the main characters in The SleepingBeauty through dancing, crafts and educational activity pages. Guided discussion during craft time leads from choreographers to composers to orchestras to performers to nutrition for a dancer's body. Students view the full length version of The Royal Ballet's The Sleeping Beauty over the course of the week while enjoying nutritious snacks each day. In addition, dancers are taught appropriate class room behavior with an emphasis on respecting other dancers, the teachers, and the studio. A short performance for parents will be presented on the last day (Friday, July 21 at 11:20 AM).
Please see the Dress Code page for suggested dance wear. If your child will be enrolling in fall classes, consider purchasing her required class-specific leotard, pink dance tights and pink leather ballet shoes to use during camp. Dress code IS relaxed for the summer, however; if your child does not own all of the dress code items, any leotard, dance tights and leather ballet shoes are acceptable for camp. Students may borrow or keep any available items from the Dance Wear Share boxes located in the studio hallway to use during camp. Hair must be in a bun and no jewelry is allowed other than small earrings. No underwewar that show, pelase.
Age requirement: Children must be 4 as of the first day of camp to enroll in this camp.
