TikTok Dance Camp
With a focus on jazz and hip hop, dancers learn popular TikTok dances, and also learn how to create and utilize successful TICK TOCK posts. Ages 10-17
Special note about dance shoes and attire: Although we recommend that students have dance wear and the suggested type of shoes, it is not necessary to have each specific type of dance shoe and attire for our week-long session. Dance attire can consist of dancewear, or may also include comfortable, stretchy and close to the body fitting street clothing. We have many “loaner” dance shoes available for students to use. If you would like to purchase one type of shoe, a ballet slipper may be worn for both ballet and jazz dance for children. For the teen jazz dance camps, we recommend the low-cost Capezio Foot Undeez, or borrow shoes from us. Learning different styles of dance over the summer can be very fun, and need not be hindered by having to purchase new shoes, too.
