Dance Camp will foster aesthetic, technical, intellectual, and creative development in every dancer.  Dancers will have the opportunity to participate in studio-based dance practices enhancing their knowledge of the discipline and art of dance. Dancers will develop an understanding and appreciation for the creative processes of dance performance. Each participant will demonstrate a sense of commitment and positive attitude that will foster creative processes and lead to effective decision-making in directing their own end of the camp dance performance.

This camp will nurture artistic leadership in dancers through opportunities to perform, choreograph, teach, and learn about stage management.  By the end of Dance Camp the dancers will develop improved communication skills and will have developed new dance techniques.
