Duffy The Lion Day Camp

August 10 to August 14:

9AM - 3PM

We will offer an all day dance camp (ages 7+) with the long awaited much anticipated making of Duffy, the most adorable (and subtly fierce) stuffed animal lion ever!!! Fun fitness, dance conditioning, technique and steps AND some wicked cute crafting!! We can't wait to make our own to keep!!

Dancers must have some experience and be 7 years of age or older!  There will be levels from Youth 1 to our Master class dancers!  Camps will offer dance strength and form conditioning, performance nuances, crafts, games, camaraderie building and so much more!! You/your dancer is sure to leave happy and probably very tired!!

Camp is 9AM to 3PM. Dancers must come with water, lunch and a snack (maybe 2). Due to COVID we will not be offering early drop-offs or late pick-ups to allow proper cleaning and prep time.

Hope you join us for this dancing, creative and crafty fun time! WE CAN'T WAIT!!!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • Can I come to a portion of an intensive/camp if I can't make the whole thing?

If you will miss the first or second day, it is not recommended that you attend that intensive.  Intensives are challenging and move at a set pace. Each day builds on the previous day's skill set.  Dancers may miss a day of camp, but we are unable to pro-rate for missed days and may result in a student's frustration over missed material or craft instruction.  

  • What should I bring to an intensive/camp?

Shoes and appropriate dance wear are required as always. There will be short breaks where we will encourage students to drink water and have a light snack, so please pack accordingly.  For camp students please bring a lunch (possibly a 2nd snack), back-up clothes for optional water play...or sweat lol, and a towel.   

  • I already know (insert dance), should I still attend that intensive?

Students are encouraged to attend intensives even if they believe they are familiar with the material. It will improve their understanding, technique, and timing. Much like other sports, it is one thing to "know" something, it is another to "master" it.  

  • Can I sign up for two intensives in one day?

Yes, but it is not typically encouraged - intensives are hard work and purposely separated to focus on material.  Exceptions include obtaining the teacher's permission or if the student is physically conditioned to handle strenuous exercise for more than 4 hours. 

*Dance camps and intensives require a minimum of 6 participants.
