Summer Creative Arts Camps

**Danceworks is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it unfolds, and during this time of constant changes and new information, we will be making short-term next step plans and communication them as best as we can to our students and families to ensure everyone’s health and safety when we reopen. 

In the meantime, we have removed summer online registration for now. If you are not currently on our mailing list and would like to receive the most up to date information, please click here to be added so we can communicate our plans as they become available.

We hope our studio families and friends will enjoy the videos for at-home learning and maybe even have a family dance party, or two! Stay healthy and well.

Make new friends, use your imagination, create original artwork and experience the thrill of performing with Summer Creative Arts Camps at Danceworks!

Our popular Summer Creative Arts Camps for ages 3-4 and 5-11 integrate dance and visual arts, along with music, creative drama and creative writing, into one fun-filled program. Taught by experienced professionals, each week offers an age-appropriate theme that sparks imagination and creativity, with an informal performance for friends and family as the grand finale!

At Danceworks, summer has always meant creative arts fun for all ages. As we look forward to warmer weather and the promise of being together again with friends and family, we also know that, upon reopening, this summer will be very different at Danceworks for all of us. To ensure the safety of our students, we are taking extra precautions for good health by adjusting our summer schedule.

Danceworks has planned an abbreviated version of our popular summer creative arts camps beginning mid-July. Although we will be offering fewer camps, our team of professional arts educators will deliver the same high-quality arts programming we have been offering for over 25 years. Exploration, creativity, and play are needed now more than ever! Danceworks is dedicated to helping students see the world through their own imagination. We hope you will join us this summer!

Please note: Danceworks faculty has extensive experience in addressing a wide range of skills and abilities within a classroom. Our revised schedule will also consolidate ages and each camp will be appropriate for ages 5-11, with the exception of one camp ages 3-4.

Sibling Discount: Save $15 when you enroll two or more children in any camp. This discount will only apply toward siblings, not per individual. Siblings do not have to be registered for the same camp, however, registration for all camps must take place at the same time. This discount can only be applied when registering over the phone or in person, and can only be used once – the $15 will be taken off the total tuition.

Camp Deposit A $25 per camp non-refundable deposit is required when registering for a camp. The deposit will be applied to the camp tuition and can be transferred to another camp week, but will not be refunded. Any balance due on camps must be paid in full before the first day of camp.

Withdrawing from a camp: If a student should need to withdraw from a camp and we receive notice at least three weeks prior to the start of that camp, a full refund will be issued, less the $25 deposit. Cancellations received with less than a three week notice will receive a 50% account credit. Credits can be used for any Danceworks class or program and will remain on the student’s account for one year from the date the credit is issued. Transferring camp fees from one week to another week is possible depending on availability of the individual week. Advance notice is required to transfer to another week.
