OVERVIEW OF OUR SUMMER PROGRAMS

Camps I – III & V – VII are designed for kids ages 6-12, and run 8:30am-3:30pm
. All camps are 5-days, Monday – Friday  

Camp IV is designed for ages 5 – 8, and runs 8:30am-12:30pm.  
This camp is held during the 4th of July week and is only 4 days long, running Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday, with the option to sign up for
only 2 days of that week as well.

All of our programs are designed both for children who take multiple weeks as well as those who take only one.

The Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop offers multiple Dance Camps (Camps I, II, & III) that help students become more well-rounded dancers while
training under teachers of different technical styles.  During the morning portion of the Dance Camps, students will focus on various dance forms
including African, Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, and Dance Improvisation. Afternoons will be spent exploring additional ways of using movement
through a variety of activities. We also offer a week of “Moving Words” (Camp VI) which uses movement activities to enrich language and writing skills,
and inspire young authors. Our newest addition is Camp VII, Imagine which is all about stimulating imagination.  We also have a half-day camp for our
younger participants. In Camp IV, “Adventures in the Arts,” participants ages 5 – 8 will explore movement, art, story-telling, and theatre games.

Tuition: $170.00 per camp / $100 for Camp IV

There is a 10% discount for siblings and for students who enroll for multiple weeks. Please note that discounts will be given at the time of initial
registration. They are not retro-active and are not available for separate registrations.

As space is limited, tuition will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until the programs fill or until the Thursday preceding each program.

Refunds will not be given except in the case of injury with a doctor’s letter or in the case that there is not adequate registration for the camp to run.

REQUIREMENTS
Please refer to the descriptions of each program to determine age limitations. No previous dance training is necessary, with the exception of Camp IV.

Dancers will need to bring a nutritious lunch, snack, and water/beverage each day. Lunch will not be provided. Water fountains are on site. Due to the
prevalence of peanut allergies, we ask that you don’t pack peanut products.

Students can arrive between 8:30 and 9:15am and must be picked up between 3:00 – 3:30pm. Should a late morning arrival time be required, a phone
call to let us know will help our daily planning process. We know that it’s summer, and have built flexibility into our schedule, but knowing any changes
on your end helps us to keep this a fun experience for your child. (We’ll try and keep the most exciting things for when everyone is present!)
