Why Dance Camp?
At Dance Camp, it is more than just movement. It is the friendships made,the time management skills gained, the creativity developed, and the ability to accept and work with the uniqueness in others both independently and as a group. Campers are active all week long with both physical and mental challenges. Dance Campers are challenged to problem solve and to make quick thoughtful decisions. Think of the skills your camper can build while having a blast!
We know August can be a struggle to fill in the camp schedule. Bowman Dance Company & School’s weekly dance camps have a different theme each week to keep your dancer engaged and excited about what is coming next! Instructors are creative, supportive and encouraging. Book one, two, or all three weeks to customize your Summer Adventure. Dancers are moving all day long with dance classes, arts & crafts, an adventure class by the boat dock, choreography, improvisation, obstacle courses and so much more.
