Fairytale Ballet Camps - Creativity and growth for 5 – 8 year olds
*The event has already taken place on this date: Thu, 07/23/2020
The day will begin with a ballet class suited to your dancer’s skill level:
In Primary 1 & 2, your student will develop musical awareness, rhythm, and coordination through the fundamentals of ballet, creative movement, acting, and games.
In Primary 3, students will continue to build on their knowledge of ballet’s fundamentals and learn more complex movements at the barre and across the floor.
The second class of the day will be either Musical Theater or Character Dance:
In Musical Theater, the dancers will learn the basics of singing and acting, while syncing those new skills with complex dance steps. They will learn a routine to an excerpt from a kid-friendly, family-favorite Broadway musical.
In Character Dance, students will learn the basics of balletic folk dancing (plus a little bit of history of both character dance and ballet). WARNING: This class is so fun, they’ll be twirling, toe-heel-cross-heeling, and stamping through the house for the next several months.
The final class of the day is our famous Fairytale Ballet Class. Students will take a deep dive on a famous classical fairytale ballet, studying the origins of the story, the history, about the choreographer and composer, and about how it came to the stage. They will watch an internationally-acclaimed version of the ballet, studying the dancers, costumes, and stagecraft. The teacher will then work with the students to bring a modified version of the ballet to life, culminating with an in-studio performance for families and friends on the final day of the program.
Each camp day will include 15 minutes for a snack break. Please bring a healthy labeled snack with your child each day.
