Ballet & Jazz Camps

Ballet & Jazz Camps

Cinderella's Enchanting Dance Camp
Ages 3 & 4

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! Also, dancers will enjoy art activities which 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 dance wear for this camp. A gymnastics leotard or t-shirt, shorts, and bare feet will suffice.
