With professional training, outreach programs, and original performances created every year, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks is Calgary’s largest recreational dance school and they’re passionate about what they do.

Summer dance camps at DJD are designed to inspire a love of dance in your child. The emphasis on having fun makes each week a celebration of creativity! Campers are encouraged to embrace challenges, expand their movement vocabulary, and build their confidence. With new friendships and the life-long advantages of active creativity, your child will want to spend all summer at Decidedly Jazz!

Summer Camps

Decidedly Jazz Danceworks has summer camps for kids from preschoolers to teenagers.  The littlest ones (ages 4 – 5 years) enjoy half-day camps and the older kids (ages 6 – 18) get to stay all day. The camps don’t just include jazz dance, either! With hip hop, general dance, and musical theatre, there are options for everyone. General dance camps include West African Dance, funk and hip hop, contemporary dance, rhythm play, and creative dance and improvisation. All dance camp weeks include learning the basic building blocks and vocabulary of dance, creative improvisation through games and exploration, the history of dance, and rhythm exercises. At the end of the week, kids will enjoy sharing their dance with parents and friends. Find what week is best for your child’s age and interest here.
