LAKE PLACID - The Lake Placid School of Ballet, housed at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, is offering the opportunity to introduce girls and boys to dance through a week-long dance camp. Children between the ages of 6 and 9 will learn the basics of ballet, jazz and character from experienced instructors.
This is an perfect opportunity to expose children to the world of movement, expression and dance. Studies have shown that dance helps children mature physically, emotionally, socially and cognitively. Dance is a great physical activity and the best part is it's fun. Dance Camp is also an introduction to the Lake Placid School of Ballet, which offers ballet, jazz and tap during the school year for children, teens and adults.
Dance Camp classes are from Aug. 20 to 24 from 9:30 to 11:45 a.m. The cost for 10 classes during the week is $110.
Registration is required for the Dance Camp.
