Calling all future performers
Due to current events, we will not be able to run our camps this summer as planned. We will try to run one in the winter and are working on an online virtual camp that will be released in August. More information to come soon! Keep reading to learn more about how our camps usually run!
First Position Community Camps are Pay What You Can (PWYC) dance and theatre camps sponsored by First Position Dance Academy. Thanks to the studio and outside donors we are able to offer PWYC DANCE AND THEATRE CAMPS every summer. The studio suggests a donation of $10-$20 per students however we will accept a minimum of $5 if that's what your budget allows. We hope to be able to offer more camps over the winter holidays in the future. We believe that everyone should have access to dance and performance opportunities. We also like to give back to our community and hope these camps can provide a positive and fun experience for local youths. These camps are the perfect chance to see if your child is a good fit for dance based activities.
We always appreciate anyone who is willing to volunteer during these camps. We look for enthusiastic, responsible people with a passion for the performing arts. Candidates must love children, have leaderships skills and willing to offer between 20 - 35 hours when they volunteer with us. If the volunteer is a teen student of First Position Dance Academy, we can offer a discount as a thank you!
FIRST STEPS TO THE STAGE
Suggested for ages 7-12
No experience required - not only will you dance, sing and act but you'll learn about costumes, props and everything theatre! You'll leave with a camp shirt, any props you've made and hopefully a group of new friends.
2020 Dates: Will be announced in March 2020
Times: 9:00am - 4:00pm
MINI DANCE CAMP
Suggested for ages 3-6
These half day camps are designed to teach the absolute basics of dance to toddlers. A great way to see if your child is ready to sign up for a full term of ballet, jazz or tap classes. They will learn through games, activities as well as basic dance lessons. You'll leave with a camp shirt, any crafts made and a love for dance.
2019 Dates: Will be announced in March 2020
Times: 9:00am - 1:00pm

Your donation cannot be returned if you do not complete camp, you do not show up to camp, or you cancel within the 2 weeks prior to the camp start date. An exception may be offered if we are able to fill the space before the first day of camp.
