Share in the magical and imaginative adventures of RCDA’s Summer Princess/Fairy Dance Camps! Participants will dance and craft as they pretend to be famous princesses and fairies like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, the Sugar Plum Fairy and more. Each session will explore different princesses and fairies! We’ll also tap over to The Land of Sweet Taps with our yummy candy-themed tap dance exercises and games. Each day includes a ballet and tap lesson, craft session, and princess ballet time when we’ll create our own mini-ballet production based on that week’s characters. We’ll also practice princess-perfect manners and behavior, most especially during our daily snack break. All dancers will receive a beautiful tutu and matching headpiece. On the last day, the dancers will perform their Princess Ballet and Candy Tap Dances for family and friends!
