Summer Dance Programs

The Y’s Dance Center’s year revolves around two semesters, Fall and Winter/Spring, culminating in an end-of-year performance each June. But the fun doesn’t stop after the Spring Recital!

The Dance Center conducts a number of camps and clinics throughout the summer, including the popular Princess Dance Camp, which gives little dancers ages 3 to 5 the chance to leap and twirl through the basics of ballet and tap. There’s a new princess to follow each day, who helps the other teachers show these little princesses in pink the elements of ballet and tap warm-ups, taught in a developmentally appropriate way (as in, “stomp that spider!” to get those tap shoes clacking…)

*There is no membership required for summer dance camps unless otherwise stated.
*Camp prices are $215.
