Summer

The lazy, hazy days of summer are closer than you would think! What a fantastic time for your child to explore the world of dance and all that it has to offer! 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. Join The Dance Corner this summer and experience first-hand what makes The Dance Corner feel like home to so many local families.


Summer Mini Camps

For families looking to dip their toes into dance, The Dance Corner offers evening mini camps 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.  Mini camps are held Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at The Dance Corner studio.  There is no registration fee for mini camps.  The Dance Corner reserves the right to cancel/combine camps one week prior to the start due to insufficient enrollment.

2020 Summer Schedule


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. Intensive experiences are offered in Jazz, Ballet, and Lyrical dance technique, in addition to Acrobatics, Jumps, and Turns. 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.)

Lyrical Intensive

The Dance Corner Lyrical Intensive offers a comprehensive, challenging program for the serious dance student. It requires a high level of commitment and dedication from all of its participants. Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet and jazz dance. The steps and terminology that are taught in ballet and jazz classes are all taught during this class. Dancers work to connect their steps together with fluidity and grace. In addition, at this level, dancers focus on increasing their strength and flexibility. The goal of the Intensive is to nurture, develop and challenge each dancer’s technique as well as cultivate their self-expression and self-confidence.

The intensive will be held at The Dance Corner studio and each session concludes with a showing for friends and family. (Showing will be virtual if in person audiences are not permitted.) The Dance Corner reserves the right to cancel sessions due to insufficient enrollment.

"What I love about WWPDC productions is that they always seem to bring everyone together. You get to see the younger girls and boys dance in dances you may have danced in when you were their age and get to see how much they look up to you. It brings smiles to everyone’s faces."
