Location Tips

  • Having all of camp in one building was amazing! Dancers could really make the most of their breaks. – Bri
  • Coaches encourage your dancers to really let loose and have fun during the time with the master instructor! – Kelsey
  • Be sure take a look at the schedule online prior to the start of camp. Elite sessions are just a bit different from our traditional camp schedules, but are great way to push your competitive dancers! – Lindsay
