Summer Dance Camps for Grades K-2

Share in the imaginative adventures of RCDA’s Magical Summer Dance Camps! Participants will dance and craft as they explore a different theme in each session. 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 dance lesson, craft time, and dance games all based on the theme of that week. We’ll also practice good manners and behavior, most especially during our daily outdoor snack break. On the last day, dancers will have a small performance where they can showcase what they have learned!

All summer programs will be held at our Maplewood-Alta Vista Park dance studio.
