Camps are one of those things for working parents that are a must! Always finding the right combination of enrichment, education, fun, and security is a chore.
Principal Ballet values and appreciates this. Along with our year-round program, we also have camps for your youngest campers.
Half-Day And Full-Day Camp Is Available
What our parents say:
"Our daughter fell in love with ballet, in no small part, because of her first teacher, Alexia Redick Bartlett. She took her first Summer camp classes with Alexia when she was just four and she continues to love her sport today at the age of 12. Alexia has a really special way with the little children. She appeals to their sense of fun and need to move. It’s not a stuffy ballet class but still, nestled in all that commotion, the kids are being taught the foundations of a future in dance. That’s the best way of learning, when it just feels to them like they are playing. Our daughter has gained so much through her dancing at principal and now for the Conservatory. She sees what is achievable with hard work and persistence and she has learned how to handle the successes and disappointments that come with any sport. All of this has helped to provide her with great confidence and a positive attitude. She is a really happy child and her dancing is a big part of her happiness. We are a glad to be part of the principal family"
The Summer is packed with fun and constructive activities as well as amazing choreographers in jazz, hip hop, tap, and of course ballet basics.

On Fridays, the big kids help the little kids perform a show for the parents. As part of our leadership training program, our 3E Society kids get to learn how to put on a production, encourage and mentor, as well as develop great task-based leadership and management skills.
The performance starts at 11:45 and we love when families come with friends and bring flowers for their little stars.
