2023 Summer Dance Arts & Yoga Workshops

If you love to dance, create art, and do yoga, then this is the program for you.

Summer Dance, Arts, & Yoga (DAY) Workshops invite you to explore dance, art, yoga, music, drama, and more. And, each workshop is designed with different themes so you can attend year after year for lots of creative fun.

The summer program combines different age groups which allows for students of all ages to learn from one another. This also fosters confidence in younger students who benefit from watching and imitating the older students, and encourages leadership in older students. In addition to combined age group activities in which all the students work together, dancers have the opportunity to work in smaller groups according to their age level.

Workshops are offered for children of all levels of experience. Join in the fun and discover the magic!

The creative arts help students to:

  • gain confidence and a positive self-esteem
  • learn problem solving skills
  • make discoveries about themselves, their friends, and the world around them
  • learn cooperation by working together as a group
  • learn to respect each other’s unique style
  • learn spontaneity, leadership, and self-control
  • develop creativity
  • gain physical strength, flexibility, and stamina
  • develop good posture, balance, and coordination through dance exercises and yoga postures

Workshop Descriptions

Creative Dance, Arts, & Yoga Workshop (Ages 5-11)

The day begins with a creative dance class where children express themselves through movement. Students explore dancing to a variety of music and dance styles while developing age-appropriate skills and learning ballet and modern dance vocabulary. Dance class is followed by an art project integrating art and movement concepts. Each day will encompass a different theme. Then we will enjoy a nut-free snack brought from home. A special activity will follow, which may include drama and theatre games, dance history, yoga games, sing-alongs, story time, music for dancers, outdoor play, or costume designing. At the end of each day we will close our program with yoga and relaxation.
