Some kids can’t stop grooving, moving, and feeling the beat! This summer, take that beautiful energy in your kids and channel it into dancing with Decidedly Jazz Danceworks summer camps. They will spend a week being active, having fun, and developing their creativity!
Decidedly Jazz is a professional dance company in Calgary, dedicated to the evolving art of jazz dance. 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. They encourage their dance students and campers to experience how jazz music shapes movement and feeling, to explore the connection between personal expression and collaboration, and to enjoy the movement.
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 the friendships they’ll develop along the way and the life-long advantages of active creativity, your child will greatly benefit from their week at DJD.
Summer Camp Themes
Each week at Decidedly Jazz is a different theme and age group. All dance camp weeks include learning the basic building blocks and vocabulary of dance, creative improvisation through games and exploration, the history of dance, rhythm exercises, and sharing their dance with parents and friends at the end of the week.
The summer starts with a Teen Dance Camp for ages 13 and up. Later in the summer, you’ll also find advanced camps and Hip-Hop camps.
Youth camps are for ages 8 to 12. This age group can choose from Dance Camp, Hip-Hop Camp, Fine Arts Camp, and Dance Around the World Camp. There is even a Boys Only Camp and a Fierce Girl Camp!
The child camps are for ages 4 to 5 (half days) or ages 6 to 7 (full days). They also include such camps as Dance Camp, Hip-Hop Camp, Fine Arts Camp, and Dance Around the World Camp.
Summer camps at Decidedly Jazz Danceworks run from 9 am – 4 pm, every week from July 2 to August 23, 2019. There is no charge for before and after care if you drop off after 8:30 am and pick up before 4:30 pm, but you can pay for longer care, if necessary. You must have an active membership to DJD to register your child, but memberships only cost $20 for one person and $25 for a family.
Summer is a great time for exploring movement, challenging yourself, and having fun. Decidedly Jazz is ready for your child to experience all this and more!
