Voted #1 Summer Day Camp FOUR Years in a Row!

Registration for 2023 Summer Camps is now OPEN!!!

My son was a first time camper at Twirl this summer! After seeing the joy on his face when I picked him after his first day at camp, I knew I needed to sign him up for another camp session. He couldn't wait to tell me all about the fun things they did each day at camp.

Twirl Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions

 

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, but we do love themed costumes that allow for free movement. 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. Dance shoes and black dancewear are required for Twirl Summer Dance Intensive (we’ll be in touch a week or two before the intensive to go over details!).

What does my child bring to camp?

Campers will bring a bottle of water and a minimal crumb causing snack. That’s all!

The 4-10 age range looks pretty broad. How you manage that?

Because such a large number of kids attend Twirl summer camps (it’s like one big party!), we divide campers into two or three 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. Also, siblings can be in the same group or separate depending on family preference.

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! However, for Twirl Summer Dance Intensive previous training is required.
