  summer jam+dance camp  

"Our son had a wonderful experience at camp. He learned a lot and had a great time every day. I would highly recommend the camp to anyone looking for a summer activity that will engage children in true learning in a very low-key, child-friendly way. This is exactly what summer programming should be.  We can't wait to go back next summer!"

A full-day camp for kids ages 4 to 9 in Lakeview


During this week-long camp, kids spend their day exploring music and movement with friends.


The music part of their day is designed to let kids explore the world of sound in an enriching, fun environment that offers hands-on experiences with instruments and introduces them to sounds from around the world. Campers learn through all of the senses by discovering more about music through dance, books, games, art and more! You can read more below about the weekly music themes: Our Orchestra, Our World, Our Nation, and Our City.


Campers spend the other half of their day exploring creative movement along with dance genres such as jazz, ballet, hip hop, and musical theatre. Give your child the skills to use their imagination to dive into the theme each week. In the dance studio, they will develop a connection to their mind-body and critical thinking skills through collaborative dance-making. Colorful props, books, games, and music will enable each learner to dive into the material to make it their own.
