The Dance Camp offers a lot of fun and challenge for 6-18 years old participants. Over the course of the week, focused dance training in the field of Urban Dance Styles (also known as Hip Hop) will be offered. Younger students will learn age appropriate moves and creative dance as well as following the rhythm and expressing their feeling through movement. For our more advanced students core elements of the various hip hop styles will be explained and taught followed by elaborated moves to build up a profound understanding of both movement and style gradually (mental and physical knowledge). Based on their level and interest as a group, we will develop and learn dance choreography which will be presented at our show at the end of week. Together, we will design the flyers and costumes, organize a photo shoot, choreograph, practice the dance steps and rehearse for the show! We are sure that this experience will be unforgettable!
