Arts in Education Summer Day Camp

Celebrating its 17th year, Latin Ballet of Virginia has proudly provided art education camps in an exciting and unique format! Inspiring children’s self-expression for intellectual growth our Summer Camp Series is sure to boost self-confidence and cultural interests!

The Latin Ballet of Virginia strongly believes in the arts’ ability to inspire children. Students develop notable self-confidence, a sense of discipline and the joy of sharing skills; discovering a greater regard for dance and connecting dance forms to specific language and culture.

We have included several locations and dates for our Summer Camp this year and all camps include classes that explore various dance techniques including classical ballet, flamenco, Latin American dances, contemporary dance,  gymnastics, hip- hop, in addition includes classes such as dance history, creative movement, drums and percussion, arts and crafts, story telling, and much more.

Our unique program is taught by professional dancers and musicians, of the Latin Ballet of Virginia, who have years of performance and teaching experience to share with each student. Classes are held in professional dance studios and art rooms. Each of the sessions culminates in a performance by the students, incorporating what they have learned throughout the camp.
