The Dance Centre Summer Classes and Camps 2022

Summer classes are a great opportunity for your student to develop new skills as well as making sure they don’t regress. This summer we will be offering weekly leaps and turns classes as well as PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique), pointe, acro, modern, technique camps and themed dance camps just for our younger dancers. Registration for all summer classes and camps will be open Thursday May 12th at 9:00am. Enrollment is on a first come first served basis. Please register early to ensure your place in the classes and camps. If the class you wish to register for is full, please make sure to add your name to the waiting list.  If we open a new class priority will go to those on the waiting list. We will not accept any registration changes/withdraws after the 1st of each month; this will allow us time to offer any openings to those on the waiting list.  If a class has 6 or less students enrolled, we may cancel or combine the class with another.  You will be notified through email of any changes to your registration.   If you are currently enrolled at TDC there is not a registration fee for summer classes.  If you are new to TDC there is a $20 registration fee for summer classes that will be due with your first month’s tuition.  There won’t be a registration fee charged for the tinies theme camps.

 ***IMPORTANT*** If your dancer is planning to audition for a competition team, they are REQUIRED to attend at least two of the summer technique camps.  If they are undecided about auditioning, please still have them register to ensure they will have a spot.  If they decide not to audition, they can withdraw their camp registration as long as they do so no later than June 6th.

Tuition will be billed monthly for summer classes.  All June classes will be billed the first week of June and deducted from the payment method on file on the 11th of June.  The same will apply for July and August.  Tuition prices are listed in blue next to each class option.

*Modern – This class is for dancers that are at the intermediate or advanced level.  If your dancer is considering dancing in college Modern technique is something they need to be familiar with.  Ciera Duersch has spent 2 years training in the UVU dance department and is working towards her dance education degree.  She will be teaching this class and is excited to share what she’s learned with our dancers.  Here’s the class description….

This class will explore the fundamental movements and actions of the human body, and the way that it relates and moves through the space around it. We will accomplish this through improvisation, as well as aspects of modern technique that will be implemented into contemporary choreography. This class will help dancers to step out of their technical and choreographical comfort zone, and prepare them for dance classes in the future, especially at the collegiate level.

*PBT/Ballet Conditioning – A dancer’s instrument is their body. For optimal performance, dancers need to make time to work on refining and improving their instruments outside of their regular dance classes. Besides Pilates, yoga-, and strength training, we will be working with Progressing Ballet Technique, an innovative program for dancers to understand the depths of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in Classical Ballet.  PBT is already being taught in many dance schools across the country & the world– to target and strengthen specific muscles used for dancing, and to create muscle memory for good technique that will make dancers more productive in their regular dance classes.  This class is open and encouraged for any dancer, beginning through advanced.  Please select the appropriate level according to ballet class level. Materials needed:  Lacrosse ball, 9-ft long resistance band (6-inch width).  Both of these are available for purchase at the studio.
