    What do kids learn at ballet camps?

    Kids and teens receive dedicated ballet training at specialised ballet camps. Basic movements such as plié, sauté, and pirouettes are introduced in beginner classes. Barre and floor exercises are also important at beginner stages, as it warms up the body and develops children’s flexibility. In intermediate camps, leaps, turns, and other fun movements may be added to the repertoire.

    Balance, control, and gracefulness are all qualities of a good ballet dancer. Through exercises and routines, kids increase flexibility and gain physical skills. Over the duration of camp, kids pick up on ballet terminology and gain deeper exposure to classical music, which they dance to. Conditioning exercises are often part of ballet camps. These strengthen dancers’ bodies, and also help prevent injury.

    All ballet programs are coeducational. Partnered or group dances are commonly found in these camps. Prices for ballet camps begin at $120.

    About advanced ballet camps

    Advanced ballet camps at esteemed dance institutions begin with pre-primary training. In this, they learn the absolute fundamentals of ballet identified by professional dance academies. These programs give children a foundation to grow as dancers, helping aspiring professional dancers grow and develop. They may also include training in poise, as well as audition preparation. 

    Some advanced camps also include more than one dance style within their curriculum. Dance styles such as acro or jazz, which require the same amount of flexibility and gracefulness as ballet, often accompany ballet training. This expands children’s dance repertoire and strengthens their rhythm and flexibility skills.

    More benefits of ballet camp

    Ballet camps give aspiring dancers a unique set of dance and life skills. Here are some things children gain from time in ballet camps:

    • Increased bodily control. Ballet requires dancers to balance on their toes, glide, and other unique movements. It calls for physical control. Dancers’ self awareness becomes heightened. Practical side effects of this are that they learn to prevent injuries, improve posture, prevent back and neck problems, and more.
    • Improved performance skills. Dancers practice performance skills and receive feedback from instructors and family members.
    • Improved musical intelligence. Dancing to classical music expands children’s musical intelligence. They understand this form of music more fully and become more cultured.
