ABC Center for Performing Arts - Always Building Character

                  SUMMER SCHEDULE 2018



     We are excited to announce our summer programs we will be offering this year!  There are many reasons why you should dance over the summer. It’s both fun and great exercise, and there are many more benefits as a dancer to continuing your dance education over the summer!

 

      The summer is a great time to try out new dance genres.  Summer classes and camp only require a short term commitment and you get a chance to try out a new dance style.   Summer classes are typically smaller than usual and you are bound to get more individualized attention.  Because classes are smaller, sometimes different ability levels are intermixed.  You might not only be challenged by this but you could also make new friends that aren’t typically in your classes.  Your instructors pay attention to who takes summer, extra classes, workshops, etc.  When they have to choose someone for a role or opportunity, and want a dedicated dancer, these dancers are the first they will look to.  An advanced dancer relies on muscle memory to execute more difficult steps.  It takes thousands of repetitions to create muscle memory and so much can be lost in a few short weeks of not dancing.   No matter what you do over summer break, be sure to squeeze in some dance! You have worked too hard and long to let it all go.  Most importantly, dance over the summer because it’s fun!
