Have you signed up your child for summer dance camp at Dance Academy USA yet? If so, you’re in for a treat! Our camps, intensives, and workshops are considered some of the best in the region. Your young dancer will learn new skills, make new friends, and boost their self-confidence during our week-long events held throughout June and July.
Here are five tips to get you and your child ready for summer dance camp.
Learn About the Camp Ahead of Time
At DAU, we offer numerous summer camps to serve all interests and age groups. From Storytime Princess for 4- to 6-year-olds to Choreography/Improvisation Camp for ages 12 and up, you’re sure to find a camp that suits your child’s needs. Read the descriptions online, pick up a brochure from our office, or call us if you have any questions.
Have a Positive Attitude
Your child might be nervous about going to dance camp for the first time, and your enthusiasm can make them feel more confident. If the nerves kick in the morning that camp starts, offer an encouraging pep talk to help your child go from feeling nervous to excited. You’re bound to find that your child’s hesitation disappears once they realize how much fun dance camp is.
Send Your Dancer to Camp with a Friend
Speak with other parents at Dance Academy USA, and ask which camps they are planning to have their kids attend. Signing up your child for the same dance camp as their friends can make the event that much more fun. A camp buddy is especially beneficial to have if your child is shy.
Pack for Summer Dance Camp
Each camp lasts for five days and runs for three hours a day. To make sure your child is prepared, pack the same sorts of things you do for regular dance lessons, including a water bottle, healthy snack, comfortable dance clothes, and appropriate dance shoes. Remember to label everything in case your child misplaces any belongings.
Give Yourself Extra Time to Check In
The first day of summer dance camp can be a bit hectic with parents dropping off their kids to a new event for the first time. To make sure the camp gets started on time, plan to arrive a bit early to check in. This gives you time to ask any last-minute questions of the front desk staff and make sure your child gets settled into the right classroom.
