Camp Class Descriptions: 

Aerial Silks:  This class will cater directly to the aerial level of the students within the class. Students will engage in proper warm-up and stretch before training either on a sling or silk apparatus. Instructors will teach skills and exercises based on current skill level.

Ballet:  Learn the fundamentals of classical ballet. Class will focus on basic ballet technique, proper body alignment, French terminology and musicality. Students will focus on both barre and center work. The intricacy and extent of training will depend on the student’s level.

Circus: This is a more generalized class focusing on multiple areas of fun circus training! Class will cover technique, movement, skills, warm up and stretch, terminology, and more.

Contemporary Dance:  This dance class allows students to explore and understand how their own bodies move while gaining an understanding of contemporary vocabulary and how it is similar, yet different, then classical ballet. Students will develop body control as well as freedom of movement.

Dance: Classes include a variety of styles and movement. Focus lands on: warm up and stretch, technique, choreography, movement, strength, endurance, terminology, memorization, and more. Students will have the ability to learn in more than one style of dance during the class time, and analyze how the different styles move and work together. 

Deep Stretch: Deep Stretch takes you through full-body, intense stretching. The class starts with a proper, more involved warm up to better prep the body for deeper stretching than normal. Exercises and stretches can be modified for different ability levels. This class also focuses on balance, strength, technique, and endurance.

Hand-balancing: Learn and develop the muscles used for inverted balancing. This class will train students on proper alignment and technique during handstands and other balances. The class will also teach proper warm-up and cool-down for shoulder stretching and strengthening. Students will perform exercises both on the floor and on hand balancing canes.

Hip – Hop: Hip hop is a high-energy class that infuses the latest styles of street dancing and breaking. Classes will encourage students to step outside of the box by bringing their own individual style and personality to the movements. Hip hop dance class includes upper and lower body conditioning as well as a warm-up to help prepare students for more intense movements.

Juggling: Our instructors teach you how to keep those scarves, balls, feathers, rings and clubs in the air, all in a fun, low-pressure environment. Build hand-eye coordination and rhythm through proper technique, practice and juggling games. Students of all skill levels are welcome and encouraged to join. Come learn this cornerstone art of circus and clowning!

Trapeze: Comprised of a steel bar with two rope attachments on either side, the trapeze will have you spinning, swinging, and flying! Unlike the circus flying trapeze, however, aerial dance trapeze uses movements such as balances, contortions, drops, and swings. Introductory students learn similar skills to that of an aerial sling.
