2023 SUMMER DANCE CAMP

Grand Rapids Ballet School is bringing back our popular Summer Dance Camps, made especially for young dancers. Our ballet camps are a fun way for your child to stay active, meet new friends, and learn the fundamentals of ballet during summer break.

For children ages 3-6, our 75-minute ballet camp will teach your little one the fundamentals of etiquette, coordination, and musicality in an interactive environment where they will learn the beginning elements of creative movement. Students also set a goal to achieve by the end of the week and have the discipline to achieve it.

For children ages 6.5-10, our two-hour ballet camp provides the exciting creative spark they need to fuel their passion for dance. The curriculum builds a strong dance foundation focused on correct posture, placement, discipline, coordination, strength, flexibility, and the basic vocabulary of ballet.

Grand Rapids Ballet School’s 2022 Summer Camps end with a final performance on the Peter Martin Wege Theatre stage so parents can watch their little one’s hard work pay off. 2023 Summer Dance Camps are not only an excellent way for children to get their energy out – but it’s also a great workout for both their mind AND their body!
