May 06, 2022

Spend some time with us this summer! Dance, sharpen your creativity and imagination, and make some new friends! The Chicago Ballet Center is excited to offer summer day camps for two weeks in July, Saturday sessions in July and August, and a ballet intensive in August.

Details are below!

July Day Camps 

Camps will run from 9 a.m. until noon for ages 5-14.  Mini-performances will take place on Fridays. Cost: $180/session. $20 off per session if more than one session.

Inspiration for Imagination: For dancers ages 5–10, we are offering two sessions to inspire imagination and innovation. No prior experience is necessary.

July 18–22: Madrigal Magic. Just like Mirabel in Disney’s Encanto, using dance, music, and words, discover your special gift and be inspired to share it through dance.

July 25-29: Winter Wonderland. It may be hot outside, but it will be cool at the studio. Learn some of the moves and dances we performed for the Snow Queen in February, and then create your own cool costume and dance!

She-Roes are Her-oes: For dancers ages 11 & up, we are featuring “She-roes of Her-story.” Learn about music, dance, and even hairstyles and fashion from the time in her-story your she-roe shared her heroics on Earth. Then, create a dance inspired by the fascinating female you learn about. No prior experience is necessary.

July 18-22: Be an Innovate-her! Learn about a few female pioneers who changed the world through music and poetry. Use your imagination to invent your own dance inspired by the ladies you learn about.

July 25-29: American Dance Pioneers. Learn about strong, powerful women who pursued their creative passions and crossed new frontiers in American dance. We will explore the careers and influence of Loie Fuller, Martha Graham, and Misty Copeland.
