Summer Camps

Learn Next-Level Skills, Make New Friends, & Have a TON of Fun at ROOTS Academy this Summer

Summer Intensive

The ROOTS Dance Intensive is for an advanced level dancer with 2-3 years of experience who is looking to accelerate their skills and experience in a focused and fun setting. Many dancers who attend our week-long intensive are planning to audition for our Competition and Performance Company teams. These groups feature our most advanced dancers of each age group and represent ROOTS in public performances and competitions.

If you have been considering ROOTS Dance Company, this intensive is the perfect opportunity to see if you’re ready. Students who are interested in Company will be evaluated during the week by the Dance Director, Saskia Harmon, and the dance mentor team.

What Our Parents Say…

“Our daughter always looks forward to this full week of caring, professional instructors instilling proper technique, skills, and encouragement into her. She’s not only challenged and inspired by the classes but also makes great friends along the way. And always comes home exhausted, but excited to show us everything she learned. As parents, we love that she is getting taught the proper technique to ensure future growth in something she is so passionate about.”

AMY JO ARNOLD, ROOTS Parent

“My daughter Avery enrolled in Princess Dance Camp this past summer. I was amazed by how much the Princesses learned in just one week. Above that, I loved the messages instilled in each of them that inner beauty is more important than material things and that doing things in God’s favor was of the highest importance. The absolute best thing was to see how much fun the girls had and the friendships formed!”

ADDY, ROOTS Parent

“I had a lot of fun learning new techniques and something different every day! I made a lot of friends at camp that I see every week in dance classes now, which makes me look forward to coming even more!”

JADEN, ROOTS Student

Frequently Asked Questions

Do we have to be enrolled in lessons or classes at ROOTS to participate in a camp?2019-07-03T11:43:59-05:00

While we’d love for you to continue your education with us before and after summer camps, you do not have to be a current student in order to attend camps. Anyone is welcome!

What if I need to withdraw my student from the camp? Do we get a refund?2019-07-03T11:42:40-05:00

Cancellations made prior to one month before the camp start date are eligible for reimbursement in the original form of payment, minus the $50 processing fee.

My student has never danced before, but is very eager to learn and be challenged. What camps are best for my child?2019-07-03T11:48:03-05:00

Depending on age, we recommend Camp Dance for beginner and intermediate students who are eager to advance their technique in a non-competitive and encouraging environment. Our Summer Intensive is geared toward advanced students and is great for students looking to be challenged in a fast-paced and focused atmosphere.

Nope, our music camps are open to everyone. We love new faces!

My student is new to music and just wants to have fun. What camps are best for my child?2019-07-03T11:50:21-05:00

We would recommend our Disney Classics Camp (1st – 5th graders). This camp is geared toward our younger students and is a great way for kids to learn some basics in music while having fun and making friends.

Will my student need to bring a lunch, snack, or drink to camp with them?2019-07-03T11:45:53-05:00

Some camps will run through lunchtime and will require students to bring a packed lunch. Make sure you read through your camp’s description to see if lunch will be needed. ROOTS will provide snacks for camps.

We have water dispensers stationed around the studio, and we encourage students to bring refillable water bottles.

Who will be teaching my child at camp?2019-07-03T11:40:31-05:00

The ROOTS camp staff includes a dedicated group of vetted and experienced teachers. Most are year-round ROOTS mentors, but some have been hired specifically for their camp because of their expertise in the summer camp topic.

What am I supposed to wear to the dance camps?2019-07-03T11:49:41-05:00

We recommend fitted dance apparel, such as leggings, tank tops, dance shorts, and leotards. For hip hop, layers can be worn such as joggers, sweatpants, T-shirts, and hoodies.

Shoes: Tennis shoes are required for hip hop. Ballet shoes (canvas or leather depending on age) are required for ballet. For jazz and lyrical, we recommend pirouettes or jazz shoes. For contemporary, dance socks are permitted.

Hair: Hair should be pulled up and out of the face to avoid distraction.

How early can we drop off, and how late can we pick up? Do you have after-camp care?2019-07-03T11:41:39-05:00

Check-in will begin 15 minutes before camp begins. Check-out will begin promptly at the camp end time. There is no after-camp care.

Will I get to see what my child has worked on at the end of camp?2019-07-03T11:45:00-05:00

All ROOTS Camps (besides Dance Intensive) will have an end-of-camp performance to showcase all that students have learned. Details regarding the performance may vary for each camp and will be sent out closer to camp time.
