Shining Stars Dance Camps

2009

 

Dance camp is coming again!! Get ready for a week of learning and fun. Everything we do is based on what we love the mostóDANCE! Tap, ballet, and jazz classes will be held everyday. You will really like making costumes, learning about the different forms of dance and participating in a performance. Creative movement activities, line dancing, the tumble track and more add to the fun.

Who can attend dance camp? Shining Stars full day is designed to meet the interests of dancers entering first through fourth grades (6-9 y.o.). Many participants are Star-Styled students, but anyone is welcome. Everyone improves during the week. The curriculum is progressive, so each dancer starts at a personal level and learns at an individual pace. Dancers are motivated because the focus is FUN. Many dancers have enjoyed this experience multiple years. Little Stars half day is a shortened version of the all day camp. Activities are modified to a developmentally appropriate level. It is perfect for preschool dancers, kindergarten dancers, or dancers not yet ready to attend all day. This camp is extremely popular. Super Stars full day is designed for the slightly older dancer. Hip hop, cheerleading, and pom classes will be included. Tougher time steps, more floor progressions, and choreographed combinations will be taught. Dancers will work in teams to create and teach segments of a routine for the performance. New creative activities will be more challenging, but equally fun.  There is certainly a camp opportunity for you!

Who teaches the camp? Miss Megan is the primary camp instructor. She loves to do it!! Guest teachers add variety and high school aides  serve as assistants when needed, and Miss Cheryl often visits, too.

What should dancers bring? Dancers should wear comfortable dance clothing (leotard, tights, shorts) and bring the regular dance bag/shoes. Full day dancers should bring a packed lunch, including a drink, and a refillable water bottle daily. Half day dancers need not bring a lunch.  Light mid-morning snacks will be provided. Each dancer will also need a plain white T-shirt or tank top by Wednesday of the camp week (it need not be new). A reminder will be sent. All other materials are provided.

How does a dancer register? Registration is now open, and will remain open until the end of the regular dance season. A completed registration form and payment will hold a dancerís space in the desired camp week. Certain weeks fill faster than others, so please register early for the best availability. You will be notified if the week you have selected is already full. Your cleared check serves as your confirmation. In the event that a particular week does not meet sufficient enrollment, you will be notified and your money will be refunded fully. There are no refunds for other reasons, and we are unable to prorate tuition for days missed.

Can a dancer attend more than one week? Yes, this occurs often. Dancers are never bored! A 20% discount will be applied for the second paid week for any one dancer who chooses to attend two separate sessions.

What is the end of the week performance? Parents are invited to come to the studio Friday of the camp week to see an informal but very special performance. Dancers use the costumes and props they make during the week to demonstrate the skills they have learned in a special recital. Refreshments are served. Show times are 2:00pm for full day dancers and 11:30 for half day. Mark your calendars now!! Donít miss this!

Who should I contact if I have questions? Our desk receptionists are highly knowledgeable and kind. If, however, they are unable to address a specific question, please contact Miss Megan directly via email (mbo142@yahoo.com) or leave her a message at the studio desk. She will respond.
