The Dance Corner offers a wide array of summer camps, intensives, and experiences for all ages and skill levels. From preschoolers just beginning to appreciate music and movement to seasoned pre-professional dancers, TDC offers options that encourage students to explore new styles, challenge their abilities, grow in technique, build confidence, and make lasting memories with new friends.

Summer Classes

For families looking to dip their toes into dance, The Dance Corner offers evening and weekend classes in an array of styles and levels- from preschool to adult. These sessions offer a weekly experience that mimics the feel of a traditional year-long course.  It is a great opportunity to see if dance is a good fit for your child, to try a new style without commitment, or for adults to put on those dance shoes, themselves.  Summer classes are held Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at The Dance Corner studio.  There is no registration fee for summer classes.  The Dance Corner reserves the right to cancel/combine classes one week prior to the start due to insufficient enrollment.

Summer Dance Intensives

For the more serious dancer who is interested in building technique or challenging themselves with more advanced study in a specific style, TDC offers multiple week-long intensives.

New for the 2021 season is Technique for Team, open to current team members as well as dancers hoping to audition for the TDC Elite Competition Team. All intensives are open to students from neighboring studios. Intensives are a wonderful option for students who miss the feel of studio life in the summer, want to maintain their skill, or are interested in expanding their skills in new areas. Students enrolled in intensive classes will receive in depth instruction in technique, master new combinations, learn teacher created choreography, and self-choreograph pieces in the selected style. Each intensive concludes with a showing for friends and family. (Showing will be virtual if in person audiences are not permitted.)
