Springfield Ballet offers summer camps for all ages of dancers. For the youngest dancers, Fairy Tale (ages 3-5) and Prince and Princess (ages 6-9) Ballet Camps allow children to experience dance class and learn about other artistic aspects that are a part of ballet such as music, drama, and dance history. Dancers will have dance class, craft and story time, snack and nutrition education, and more each day in these week-long, half day camps.
Older dancers (ages 7-14) may participate in the Plié Ballet Camp. Daily ballet technique class is taught as well as classes in other dance styles (previously taught styles include modern, jazz, character, musical theatre and Irish), stretch and strengthen, nutrition, anatomy and physiology, dance history, and more during this week-long, full day camp.
Each camp concludes with a performance and special presentation by the dancers for their parents and guests.
