Cinderella's Enchanting Dance Camp Session #1
Whether your three or four-year-old has just expressed an interest in ballet or they have already made their debut, this camp is perfect! Join us for an enchanting four days of pre-ballet and creative movement with Ms. Lisa and her wonderful assistants and enjoy art activities that help us to explore the beautiful world of ballet. This exciting experience will culminate in a visit from Cinderella herself on the final day!
Our dress code is relaxed in the summer. If your little ballerina or danseur already has dance clothes (girls-any color leotard, pink tights, pink ballet shoes and boys-white t-shirt, black tights, black ballet shoes) they can wear them. If your little one is simply trying out ballet for the first time, please do not feel obligated to purchase dancewear for this camp. A gymnastics leotard or t-shirt, shorts, and bare feet will suffice. Dancers will have the opportunity to dress up as a princess or prince on the last day.
