Summer: full and half-day week-long summer camps in dance, music, visual art and theater and weekly studio classes ages 18 months to adult.

The class includes appropriate technique exercises for the whole body, and dancers explore shape, space, rhythm, and movement quality. Teachers use literature and other springboards that they creatively weave into the class. All classes have live accompaniment by experienced and engaging musicians.
