Summer Dance Camps
Updated: May 3, 2020
Summer is coming and you have a child who wants to dance, but where do you start? Looking for summer dance camps is easier than you think! Many studios offer summer dance programs for dancers of all levels, at an affordable price parents will love, too!
Why You Should Choose Summer Dance Camps
For new dancers, summer dance camps are a great way to try dance for the first time. For experienced dancers, summer camps are a great time to try a new style of dance or keep progressing in a current style they already take. Many kids want to dance or try something new, but don’t want to commit to something for ten months. Summer dance camps allow dancers to try out a variety of dance styles, with a short time commitment, and at a fraction of the cost. On top of that, summer dance camps are a lot of fun!
Picking the Right Dance Camp
You know your child best. Has your dancer been twirling around the living room yelling out “I’m a ballerina”? If that’s the case, a hip hop camp probably isn’t the best plan! Look for camps that align with your dancer’s age, personality, and interests.
Look for a camp that offers some variety for your dancer as well. The more variety in a summer dance program, the more exposure your dancer will have to dance in general. This helps your dancer understand his or her abilities and pick some favourite styles in the future. This makes it easier for you to register for fall classes to continue dancing past summer.
How to Register for Summer Dance Camps
Registration dates vary by studio. Some dance studios open registration for summer dance classes as early as March. Keep your eyes open to local parent magazines and community forums. Remember to stay up to date with online searches and social media sites in early spring to see what camps are available. Summer dance classes often fill up quickly, so don’t procrastinate. Online registration systems make registering for summer dance camps easy too, so if you find summer dance classes that are a perfect fit, register online right away!
Summer Camp Was Great So Take the Next Step and Register for Fall Classes
Your dancer loved summer classes and can’t wait to sign up for more dance classes during the school year. There are a number of dance classes Winnipeg has to offer your young dancer, so if your dancer loves to dance, sign them up! There a so many benefits a dancer receives from being part of a year-long dance program.
