The Benefit of Sending Your Dancer To Our Holiday Dance Camps 

The benefits of dance camp is essentially the same as sending your child to dance camp! Your dancer will continue to work on their flexibility, stamina, and coordination. 

Here are some of the MANY benefits of our camps!



While at camp your child will have the opportunity to learn multiple dances from a variety of our teachers. Dance boosts children’s memory through the learning of choreography. This helps develop learning skills to improve their academic and social life.



Dance can improve your child’s flexibility, muscle development, and cognitive development. Stretching and balancing both contribute to a stronger mind and body.  Studies have suggested that the more active a child is, the stronger their core. Plus it’s a fun way for kids to move around in a safe and fun setting!



Teamwork and participation in dance class is encouraged. This can help kids socially branch out in a small or large class setting.  Children learn to take turns playing dance games while respect others personal space. Our kids dance camps work on a performance for the end of camp. This allows children to work together towards a common goal, while helping them to build confidence and performance experience.  Priceless life lessons!



The most important part of all of this is fun! Your child will have a day full of fun. While making new friends, and growing relationships with old ones. Since our holiday camp runs from 9am-3pm there is plenty of opportunities for growth and enjoyment. Camp will give your child a space to explore in a productive way to spend their day while having time off from school. 


While dance is the key factor of our camps along side fun, the day is full of activities. We incorporate interactive games, art projects, and we even involve a chance for our dancers to “act” out scenes for their end of week program.  




What Is Contemporary Dance?

Contemporary dance is a genre of dance performance that developed during the mid-twentieth century and has since grown to become one of the dominant genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world, with particularly strong popularity in the U.S. and Europe.



The genre of Contemporary blends elements of multiple dance styles. This form of dance lets dancers express emotions through movement and breath.   

Contemporary dance is a style of interpretive dance that embraces blending improv, innovation, and technique from various styles of dance such as; jazz, modern, lyrical, and classical ballet. 

Within this genre you focus more on floor work, body shapes, and expression. Instead of relying on the strict rules that govern traditional dance styles it RELIES on your ability to move through improvisation and versatility. It allows you to have creative freedom with your movement. The fluidity of movement allows dancers to explore their mind-body connection. 

It is often referred to as a form of story-telling. Contemporary routines tend to communicate abstract ideas, moments in time, personal or historical moments. The costumes and music will typically reflect and help set the tone of the piece. Some choreographers will have their performers dance to spoken word poems, or have the dance/dancer make “music” with their bodies. 

Major power houses who helped influence contemporary included:  

✨Isadora Duncan, who was an American ballet dancer that rejected the rigid technique of classical ballet to embrace the human bodies natural lines. 

✨Martha Graham was a choreographer known for being the mother of modern dance. Her innovation laid much of the ground for contemporary movement. 

✨Lester Horton was an American choreographer who helped developed modern dance techniques inspired by Native American dances. He was also one of the first American choreographers to insist on racial integration in his performances. His legacy lives on in the work of notable contemporary choreographers including Alvin Ailey.

There are many factors, styles, and innovators who have made contemporary what it is today! This style is forever growing, and has the ability to reflect the times in a way of art movement.
