Fun, fun, fun, and more fun! Twirl’s summer camps will get your child to forget their handheld devices as they get lost in the magic of dance-related activities. Each camp has its own unique theme and will emphasize different aspects of the performing arts. Camps include a daily healthy snack, themed crafts, and will end in a final performance where your rising star has an opportunity to showcase what they’ve been working on throughout the week.
My boys LOVE your camps and they are always a highlight to the summer!

On the first day of camp, performers will be cast in Seussical Jr. (which has tons of roles!) and dive headlong into learning songs, scenes, and choreography for the show. Each day our talented cast will hit the sewing machines as experts from The Handwork Studio will walk them through the process of making their own unique costumes. These will be worn during the performances of Seussical Jr. on final day of camp. At the end of the week, our rising stars get to keep the costumes that they worked so hard to make. This ultra-creative fusion of dancing, singing, acting, sewing, and performing will all take place at Twirl. $365 per performer.**

What does my child wear for camp?
In Twirl Summer Camps we move around a lot. For real. A LOT. Campers should wear clothes that they can move freely in. Dancewear is not required. Leotard tops, snug tank tops, or shirts that are long enough to be tucked in are recommended for camps that include acrobatics. Please no crop tops, half tops, or sports bras (with nothing worn over them). Street shoes are not allowed on Twirl dance floors so if campers don’t have dance shoes, bare feet are best because dance floors tend to be slippery in socks. If there are specific clothing or footwear requirements for a camp, the registered families will receive those details in a separate email.
The 4-10 age range looks pretty broad. How you manage that?
Because such a large number of kids that attend Twirl summer camps (it’s like one big party!), we divide campers into two groups mainly by age. Younger campers are grouped together and older ones are together as well. We will send an email out prior to the start date of the camp asking for requests to make sure that friends are in the same group and so are siblings if families request (some families prefer siblings are in separate groups!).
My child doesn’t have much dance or acrobatic training, will this be a problem?
Twirl summer camps offer a super fun and welcoming environment for campers of all abilities. For camps that include acrobatics we work with individuals according to their skill level, and for all other camps, we make sure that choreography is cool, fun, and accessible for all dancers. It’s summertime… there’s no pressure!
I’ve never dropped off my child for an activity before. Can I stick around or do I have to leave?
We totally understand where you’re coming from. While parents aren’t allowed in the dance rooms during camps, we do have a TV in the lobby where you can watch what’s going on. You can hang out the lobby until you feel comfortable leaving to run those errands before the camp ends.
