Summer Dance Camp: Exploring Shapes

Summer Dance Camp: Exploring Shapes
Ages 4-7


Monday – Friday, 29 July – 2 August
10am-1pm, daily
With Robyn Holder

£110 Regular / £88 Concession
Performance Studio

Your child will be inspired over a week of creative dance that explores art and dance by going upside down, high and low, making shapes and new friends! Young dancers will be immersed in dance games, new styles of movement with elements of contemporary dance and yoga/stretching as well as creative tasks where they can have a go at making their own dances.

The week will feature visual art that children can respond to in dance, using lines, levels and dynamics. As a group they will paint a collaborative mural that relates to the new art they’ve seen and parallels how we can be moved to recreate works in space with our bodies and creativity.

Camp guidelines:

  • Children should wear clothes they are comfortable moving in.
  • No dance shoes are needed. Children can wear socks or go barefoot.
  • Any paint used will be washable, but bear in mind it may get on hands and clothes!
  • Please bring a snack for your child each day and leave with the office for snacktime.
  • Please bring a labelled bottle of water for your child to have during class.
