ABOUT THE CAMP
This camp is for current and future Dance Team dancers only. By signing up for this camp your dancer is committing to join Dance Team for the 2024-25 season/school year and attend Dance Team Tryouts on Saturday, May 11, 2024 or Saturday, June 22, 2024. Tryouts are mandatory to be a member of Dance Team and for camp participation. More information regarding Tryouts will be shared once you have registered for camp.
Students may choose up to two dances to participate in during camp. Those who sign up for the All Team Jazz dance are also committing to perform at Tenleytown Art All Night in September 2024 as well as the Washington Wizards game (TBD).
The Dance Team is for dancers ages 10-18 and is housed at our Friendship Heights location. The team is for students who wish to commit time and energy towards learning additional choreography and performing in community events. The team rehearses on Saturdays during the school year.
During the school year all Dance Team members are required to take a minimum of two technique classes per week in addition to committing to mandatory Saturday rehearsals and performances.

Given the condensed nature of this camp, if a dancer should become ill or otherwise have to miss a day of camp, the decision may be made to take that dancer out of the missed section of the dance or even out of the dance entirely. This decision will be made at the discretion of the choreographer and Dance Team Manager. This camp is the only time the dancers have to learn these pieces and thus attendance is of the utmost importance to ensure a successful dance for the upcoming season.
