Each summer, the Juline School of Dance faculty organizes a highly-attended dance and art camp. This typically takes place throughout the third week of June, and is available to ages 5 and up. A morning or afternoon session gives your child a three-hour chunk of creative playtime with peers, supervised and directed by Central West Ballet company dancers. At the end of the week, parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to come and watch a full show, featuring the dances learned and full scenery completed by the students.
For more focused dance study, a summer intensive program is available for some dance genres and levels.
