Summer Camp Is Almost Here!

As the end of May approaches, we’re closer to summer months and all of the activities that come with school being out! One of the most engaging actives for kids during the summer is attending summer camp. Just because school is out, that doesn’t mean kids can’t find ways to stay active and spend time with their friends. The eight weeks between school ending and starting provides a vital opportunity to grow and gain an advantage in life skills. There are also camps that allow kids to focus on their favorite sports or extracurricular activities. For example, summer camp at Mady’s Dance Factory’s places an emphasis on dance technique and performance. Below we’ve listed some of the top reasons why summer camp is important!

  1. Summer dance camp helps dancers work on their technique or learn something new. Dance is a sport and learned technique that requires practice. Taking a few months off increases the risk that kids forget the skills they’ve worked hard to learn. By attending a dance camp over the summer, they’ll be able to continue perfecting their talents and even learn new styles of dance.
  2. Summer camp eases the absence from school. Making the transition to summer can be tough for kids. They’re without their friends, teachers, and daily routines. Summer camp provides an environment for kids to be active without electronics and video games. This break encourages them to discover their creativity and interests.
  3. Summer camp instills and helps to build confidence. With activity and growth comes success and failure. Whether it’s basketball or dance, each activity comes with its own set of milestones and tests. These may be familiar to your child or something brand new. By getting into the dance studio and learning how to properly turn or leap, an increase in confidence will result.
  4. Summer camp provides an opportunity to make friends. Camp is the place where kids make some of their best friends. All the fun they’ll have at camp allows them to bond over activities, dance together, laugh, and have a great time.
  5. Summer encourages personal growth. Camp is the perfect place for kids to practice making decisions for themselves and figure out how to tackle problems. Children can lean on their peers for support as well as their teachers. As decision marking continues, children will feel more comfortable being independent.

If you’re looking for a summer camp where your child will learn dance techniques, make friends, and build confidence, check out the summer camp at Mady’s Dance Factory.

As staying at home becomes our new normal, it’s important to continue to do the things that make us happy and are a part of our daily routines. For many of us, this is dance! While nothing can ever replace the face to face interaction of an in-studio dance class, virtual classes offer the next best thing. Online dance classes have many benefits for dancers. We’ve listed just a few of them below!

Routine and Normalcy

Virtual dance classes allow dancers to continue an activity at home that’s an important component of their daily routine. Even when you're stuck indoors, you can still do many of the things you enjoy and maintain a sense of normalcy.

Social Interaction

Dancing from home provides interaction with instructors and other dancers. During this social distancing period, it’s important to have contact with friends and communicate!

Practice Makes Perfect

Dance is an exercise and requires consistent practice to maintain form, technique, posture, and stamina. Online dance education is a continuation of the skills and techniques dancers have already learned in class. By taking a virtual dance class, you'll be guided by an instructor who will help you in improving your dance skills and learning new ones.

Try Different Styles

Virtual dance classes also give you more flexibility in schedule and the opportunity to take classes you normally wouldn’t. Use this time to step out of your comfort zone and learn a new style of dance like contemporary, hip hop, jazz or ballet.

Mental Health

Dancing has been shown to raise endorphin levels and elevate your mood. Finding ways to cope with your mental and physical health is very important during this quarantine period. Dance provides the perfect outlet to eliminate stress and create a positive mindset!

We couldn't imagine a world without dance! If you're looking for virtual dance classes, Mady's Dance Factory offers a weekly schedule of ballet, hip hop, contemporary, acrobatics and toddlers dance classes. Contact us at to get more information and signup.
