Princess Dance Camp is a great introduction to a summer dance camp for aspiring ballerinas.

Each day will begin with a 45 minute pre-ballet class that will focus on the foundations of ballet technique: posture, balance, coordination, spatial awareness, musicality, and artistry. After a snack break, the dancers will then gather for story time and will read about the chosen princess of the day, Then they will learn a dance that characterizes that princess. Next the dancers will participate in a craft activity pertaining to the princess of the day, in which they will make a costume accessory for that princess.
