Summer 2018 info coming soon!
Camp Ages 3-17
Destination Dance is the ultimate summer vacation! We will help your child embrace their creativity and enhance their self-esteem. We focus on building confidence, proper technique, and the joy of dance. Each week is unique, offering a new course of dance training including jazz, hip hop, ballet, and a variety of styles. We offer more than dance, including classes on stage makeup, leadership, public speaking, nutrition, and more!
Our program is perfect for local and visiting familles looking for an enriching and FUN experience for your children. In 2017 we welcomed students from over 20 countries and a dozen states that found a home at SB Dance Arts.
Groups are based on level to accommodate beginning recreational dancers through pre-professionals seeking an immersive training experience. Our dedicated staff is motivated to maintain a safe and positive environment where all are welcome. There is 1 staff member for every 10 students in our program. Our 9000 square-foot facility boasts 5 studios, seating areas, The Dance Store with dance wear and snacks (where you can set your dancer up with an account) and the loop-around driveway makes for easy pick-up and drop-off of your dancer.
This year we have THREE special intensive weeks to cater to intermediate/advanced dancers: Hip Hop, Contemporary, and Ballet. Each week features a celebrity master teacher and guest artists for students to be immersed in the featured style of the week. These weeks have added supplemental costs to regular camp and are meant to pair with the full day or afternoon camp session (note full day is suggested). Please see Schedules & Special Intensives page for more information. Don’t worry - we have regular camp available for all beginning dancers during these weeks! Our 2018 info and sign up will be available in the Spring.
Every Thursday evening, the campers share their hard work with you in a FREE 30-45 minute showcase in our Performance Space. Our flexible scheduling can accommodate any local or visiting family. The trained professionals, university and high school students who comprise our faculty are the heart of our program.
free lunch program
We are proud to offer free lunch with SB Unified’s Summer Food Program. Lunch will be available one block away at Girls, Inc. A staff member will walk dancers to pick up lunch if he/she will be here through lunch. Please let us know upon check-in if your child will be participating. See menu here
