Dance Team Jr. High Camp Curriculum

Camp Dance
This is an exciting and challenging routine that your team will learn together. It’s a routine taught to an upbeat song with optional sections that vary in degree of difficulty. Your team will love learning and performing this as one!
Routines A & B
Dancers will spend 3 days with an instructor learning a routine to perform on the final days of camp. We encourage dancers to stay in their appropriate level but explore different styles of dance. The more you are able to divide your team, the more routines you have to take home to perform.
Showtime USA
Bring your home routine to camp for a performance on Night 1. Dancers will be evaluated by the USA instructors and receive their scoresheets on the final day of camp. These home routines are for evaluations only, no placements are given.
Choose Your Challenge
Work with a USA Instructor on a specialty of your choice! Each team selects a specialty they want to master at their level. Possible classes include jumps and leaps, turns, basic lifts and partnering/combinations, ballet, yoga, staging and formations, and across the floor progressions. This is always a dance camp favorite!
Drill Downs
• Foster marching abilities for a strong first impression as your team takes the floor. Drill Downs encourage discipline, coordination, and listening skills in your dancers. Technique

• All levels of fundamental Jazz and Ballet technique are offered. Coaches will divide their team into the appropriate levels to ensure each dancer’s success. Dancers will stay in the same technique level for both days, as Technique II builds on ideas and combinations learned in Technique I.
