DanceCampApply Now for the CSI/IDAA Summer Dance Camp

The CSI Fine Arts Center is taking registrations for the annual CSI/Idaho Dance Arts Alliance Summer Dance Camp Intensive for intermediate and advanced students who want a fun and challenging dance experience with LA-caliber instructors. Tuition is $95 for the junior day camp, $300 for the one-week intensive, or $430 for the ten-day intensive. Room and board packages are also available. The camp is held in late July on the CSI campus in Twin Falls.

The workshop provides intensive training to students ages 12 and up who have had a minimum of two consecutive years of dance. Students choose their schedule and take five to seven hours of class per day in ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, hip hop and modern techniques, plus musical theatre, world dance, choreography, pilates, silks, ballet band, and more. The camp features an impressive guest faculty of professional dancers and dance instructors from all over the country who bring a wealth of talent and knowledge to assure each student achieves their highest potential. At the end of the day, all the hard work is offset with fun and exciting downtime activities such as game night, movies, a canyon excursion, swimming parties, a fashion show, an ice cream social, a pizza and autograph party, barbecues, a carnival, a pampering night, and an end of camp recital for family and friends. Well-chaperoned dormitory housing and meals are available.

There is also a junior camp designed to introduce younger students ages 9 through 11 to the concept of an intensive workshop taught by the regular camp faculty in a wide-range of classes over the weekend.  

Students have a choice between the one-week and ten-day intensives. The one-week intensive place July 21 - 26. The ten-day workshop takes place July 21 - 31. Junior camp, available for students aged 9 through 11 regardless of dance experience, runs July 27. There are a small number of need-based scholarships available.

Students can obtain a registration form and more information at the CSI Fine Arts Center, by going online to www.csi.edu/dancecamp , or by calling 732-6288.
