When school’s out for summer, we’ve got you covered! Whether your kid has an interest in dance & theater, or just lots of energy to burn, we’ve got a fantastic new day camp to keep them moving.
Every camp day will include dance and drama sessions, outdoor activities, games and art projects. Along with learning technique, campers will work on developing discipline, confidence, social skills and musicality in this structured, fun-filled program. On Fridays, the kids will show off what they’ve learned throughout the week at an informal 30-minute presentation.
Each week will have a unique theme, so you can sign up for multiple camps and still get a different experience. The instructional sessions will be designed for all levels — perfect for kids who are new to the performing arts as well as those coming back to learn more.
Camp will be held from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (with options for extended programming until 6 p.m.) at our Rittenhouse studio (1923 Chestnut St, 2nd floor) and nearby parks.
Students and staff will follow all COVID-19 safety protocols required per local and federal guidelines. As of right now, face masks are optional. All of our staff is vaccinated, and we strongly recommend that all campers be vaccinated as well.

Want to enroll multiple kids? Siblings get 10% off! Register one student, then email us to set up the discount for the next.
*Other discounts, such as sibling rates, cannot be applied on top of sale prices.
We believe that everyone should have access to the arts, so if the cost is of concern, please contact us to work something out. We can create alternative payment plans or provide need-based tuition assistance.
Anything comfortable for movement will be perfect. It’ll be hot in the summer, so you may want to send an extra t-shirt and shorts in case we get sweaty doing dance fitness or running around outside. If your kids already have ballet or jazz shoes, those will come in handy but socks will work just fine, too. There are plenty of changing rooms at the studio.
Potentially. If there’s a specific style of dance you’re looking for, please contact us. We’ll let you know when we will be offering that during the camp day and we can figure out a single-class rate for your child.
