Dance Craze Camp is a three-day camp for children ages 3-8! At camp, dancers get to learn new dance skills and technique while being creative. Each day campers enjoy a snack, make an art project, participate in creative movement, and learn a dance that fits to the theme of the camp. Family and friends are invited to watch a mini performance held the last day of class to show you all that they learned! 

Cost of our three-day Dance Craze Camp is $110 per dancer which includes all materials for projects, snacks, and dance class!
