Despite our true sadness at not being able to hold our acclaimed camp on site at the beloved Burgdorff Center as we have for years, we are excited about our summer 2020 dance camp at home curriculum. Our new lower tuition rates reflect this change. This spring we have seen such growth and joy in our Zoom classes that we are inspired to create as upbeat and meaningful a curriculum as possible. Holly, Laura, Katie and I are honored to be working with our LJD students who have shown great resilience, creativity and kindness toward each other even as they navigate this difficult situation.
We are now offering 2 camp choices:
Mini Dance Camp for 3-6 yr olds: 1 hour 9:30-10:30, 3 days a week (M,W,F) for 3-6 year olds .
The tuition is $60 a week.
Dance Camp for1st grade though early high school: 2 Hours 9:30-11:30 M-F
The tuition is $195 per week.
Both Camps run from July 6- July 24 and families may choose to enroll for 1, 2 or 3 weeks. As always scholarships are available. Please reach out directly to Lydia should your family need financial assistance.
Dance Camp at Home will include a wide range of dance experiences including :
*For 3-6 yr olds our Mini- Dance Camp includes movement stories, creative games, structured free dance, dance with a prop, show and tell, musical interludes, dancing the roles in story ballets and ballet basics.
*For 6 years- through early high school our Dance Camp at Home includes: Ballet, Contemporary, Choreography with dance history, Dancer of the Day- focusing on great dancers of our time, "snack and chat" break, dance scavenger hunts, dance games and choreography workshops allowing our creative dancers to develop their own dances with guidance and input. Using the Zoom platform's "break out group" technology our classes will break into small groups for choreography and other dance experiences. We will have special Broadway Jazz and Hip Hop workshop days. LJD dancers and professional staff will teach a variety of dance classes each week. The day will start as it traditionally has with a fun Warm Up led by one of our teen interns and then an All Camp Meeting to outline the day. We will continue with many of our camp traditions such as "word of the week" and "make- a -dance" and our famed "name game". As always LJD welcomes new dancers of every level .
