The first ever DANCE This Camp took place this past week, August 2-8, in partnership with Centrum at Fort Worden in Pt. Townsend – and it was a huge success! Our goal with this camp was to provide an opportunity for young artists to really focus on technique & creativity in beautiful natural surroundings.
Thirty-six students joined us from all over the state...dancing from 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM & then dancing even more during breaks & before bed. At the end of the week, the students presented a final demonstration of what they learned (African, Salsa, Modern, Funk, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Ballet).
This showcase for their family & friends showed how, after just one week, their original choreography was already at performance-level quality. They bonded, they danced & who knows what they will bring to arts & culture in the future!
