Detroit Dance City Festival’s Kids Dance Camp focus’ on our belief ‘dance is for everyone’. Our interactive dance camp gives young children aged 3-13 in our Detroit community an opportunity to explore their creative instincts, expand their imaginations and develop life skills like teamwork and self-discipline. Our camp is divided into three groups based on their age and each group will have the opportunity to perform at Artlab J’s Detroit Dance City Festival for friends and family to watch what they have learn. With a variety of dance activities, challenges and choreography this camp really is for everyone. During the three days of camp each group will work to create a short dance that will be performed on the last day of the festival. This year our theme is 'A night at the museum', each group will have a picture to use as inspiration for their dance they create!
