Open to Community - No Experience Necessary!


Classes and Camps are designed to stimulate the child’s body and mind as they explore movement and develop their motor skills through play, creative dance, and the fundamentals of dance training. The Once Upon A Fairy Tale camp starts with a book reading of a fairy tale, the children then learn dance movements inspired by the fairy tale. A fun opportunity that incorporates creative movement, dance techniques, storytelling, and crafts!

FOLLOW THE BALLET BRICK ROAD – Beginning Ballet (Ages 7-10):  

With a journey through the land of Oz, Follow the Ballet Brick Road is designed specially for our students just beginning their formal ballet journey (with a playful theme along the way!) This beginning class is where the art of dance is shared and shown to be more than a performance art, but rather a foundation for developing the whole person. No previous experience required! 

This camp serves as an excellent introduction and time of exploration for students who may be interested in joining the Auer Academy throughout the year, but also welcome to those attending just for fun!

July Camp:
July 22-26 — 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.  ($125/week)
