7 Day Camp
June 28 - July 4
The town of Vancouver is quiet and picturesque. There are many mom and pop shops and restaurants within a reasonable walking distance. If you want more of an adventure, Portland is a short drive away. Vancouver takes pride in celebrating the 4TH of July holiday. The largest celebration in the country takes place within walking distance of our hotel. On the Saturday evening before camp starts there is an optional Meet and Greet dinner at 6:30 pm. We have a great group of experienced instructors that vary from camp to camp. A list for your camp will be provided in your Welcome Packet. Class size varies but is usually about 15 students per level. A video of the performance and a photo of your entire class is included with your tuition.
Classes included in the Short Day program are Elemental Body Alignment, daily ballet technique, pointe or men's technique, pirouettes and men's or women's variations. We have just added two afternoon workshops to this program. These will really help to improve your understanding of technique. On Friday, youíll have the opportunity to perform a variation from class if you choose. Lunch is provided each day.
The All Ballet program is more encompassing. In addition to the Short Day program, there is a Repertory class each day, two pas de deux classes, a character class, and an additional pointe class or menís class. You will learn three pieces for the performance.
The Full Day includes all of the above classes. In addition there is a restorative workshop, and stretch class everyday except performance day. Restorative and stretch will help your body recover more quickly and reduce soreness.
