2015 SUMMER PROGRAMS

 
Overview

Our Summer Programs educate students about the craft of dance and performance, inspire students to develop an affinity towards art and culture, encourage students to express themselves with confidence, and instill discipline as an effective tool to use in all facets of their daily lives.

Collage will offer two summer programs in 2015.  Summer Intensive is designed for beginner, intermediate and advanced dancers ages 9 – 24 and First Position is a dance and creative movement camp for students ages 5-8.
