With summer quickly approaching, you’re probably wondering how to keep your kids occupied and entertained.
Why not beat the heat at a summer dance camp? Summer dance camps typically allow kids to try different styles of dance, work towards a performance and, crucially, have fun!
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits that a summer dance camp can offer…
FIVE BENEFITS OF SUMMER CAMP
Keep the juices flowing
Throughout the school year kids are learning all day, every day. Summer dance camps are a great resource to trigger their brains in a fun and athletic way through physical and observational learning. Students memorize sequences of steps, rhythm patterns in music, spacing and formations – keeping those brains active.
Give them a sun break
We all want to enjoy the sunshine this time of year but many kids appreciate some time out of the heat here and there. Dance camps typically take place inside with maybe a snack, lunch, game or craft break outside for fresh air. Switch up your summer camps a bit and give your child some variation for dealing with the heat.
Explore new dance styles
Summer is the perfect time to try new dance styles like ballet, tap and hip hop to see what really gets a kid moving. Many dance camps offer a crash course to a specific style or they fuse several styles within a week and focus more on fun.
Get maximum creativity
If your child is drawn to creativity, summer dance camps are a perfect fit. Kids get many chances to share their creativity through movement, games, arts and crafts and songs. Some dance camps even involve costume design, choreography mentoring, and hair and make-up techniques for the stage!
Make new friends
Dancing creates a team-like atmosphere because the participants must work together to create the finished product. Kids get to make new friends and create special memories.
