OVERVIEW OF OUR SUMMER PROGRAMS

  • Camps I – II & IV – VI are designed for kids ages 6-12, and run 8:30am-3:30pm. All camps are 5-days, Monday – Friday
  • Camp III 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-Wednesday and Friday.)

Please note that 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, & IV) 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 V, Imagine which is all about stimulating imagination. We also have a half-day camp for our
younger participants. In Camp III, “Adventures in the Arts,” participants ages 5 – 8 will explore movement, art, story-telling, and theatre games.

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.
