FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE DANCE WORSKHOPS
DANCE UNLIMITED’S SUMMER DANCE CAMPS
FOR DANCERS OF ALL LEVELS — AGES 7 to TEEN
What is best age to enroll in the Dance Camps?
There is no “best” age. Depends on your dancer’s interest level. Classes are divided by age and ability so everyone is challenged. The age range is seven through high school. Every age grouping has a different schedule and projects each day.
Past years schedules have included – acro, nutrition class, dance history, outdoor activities, dance crafts for youth dancers, choreography, fitness, Pilates, stretch classes, jumps and turn classes, aerial, and all styles of dances from Ballet to Broadway to Hip Hop. A great variety every day. Something for everyone.
Don’t you have to be an advanced dancer to enroll?
No, the classes are divided on the first day by ability AND age. So everyone is placed in classes with dancers their own age. So, for instance, a teenager who isn’t that strong in tap will be placed in a class with other teenagers of the same ability level. Teens wouldn’t be in class with youth dancers.
I thought only Dance Company members took the Camps?
While those dancers do enroll, the Camps are designed for all Dance Unlimited students, as well as non-Dance Unlimited dancers looking for a summer program. We encourage and welcome participation from everyone, at every level, with every degree of interest. In addition to a challenging curriculum, there are many activities throughout the week such as “grill out lunches” and informational presentations and group choreography and design that encourage fellowship and personal interaction. If you want to work hard, improve your skills, and at the same time – have some fun and make some new friends, the Summer Camps are for you. Our camps are wonderful bonding and new friend opportunities.
My daughter doesn’t take tap. What will happen when there’s a tap class planned that day?
The Camps are a perfect opportunity to try ‘something new’ BUT if a dancer doesn’t feel comfortable trying a new style, they are welcome to observe that class or join another group for that hour.
