Summer Programs at The Center for the Performing Arts

Summer programs at The Center for the Performing Arts offer a fun, exciting way to foster imagination and creativity, while keeping kids moving in the summer months. Choose from two action-packed programs:


Dancing….and Beyond

It’s a dance class and so much more! During Dancing….and Beyond, children will learn a variety of dance styles and, at the same time, experience tools to foster their confidence and cooperation. During each daily session, participants will receive 2 classes. The main dance class is based on ballet principles and offers structure and discipline. The second class varies and rotates between a cultural dance, creative improvisation, musical theatre, etc.
