Based on federal, state and CDC guidance, the University has suspended all non-academic summer programs for 2021, including conferences, events, concerts and camps. Therefore, FitRec will not be able to offer Camp Terrier in the summer of 2021. See our full COVID-19 response and FAQs here.

Camp Terrier  Dance Arts

Ages 8 – 13

Fees: Member – $1,065, Non-Member – $1,290

Our two week dance camps are for dancers of all levels who want to learn in a fun and supportive environment. Students will hone their technical dance skills, work with our teachers to create original choreography and improve their performance skills. Campers will be grouped based on age, experience and ability for their daily classes in Ballet, Modern and Jazz/Hip Hop. Our program includes special classes with guest artists in other styles of dance, such as aerial, ethnic and Making Dances (composition). Recreational swim is offered daily with other fun activities planned including costume projects, games and time on the rock wall or in the gym. 

Family and friends are invited to the informal performance on the final day of each session.

New in 2020 – Dance Arts Video!

This option is only available for Session 9. In this new one week program, the focus will be on creating video dances that can be shared with families. Technique classes in Hip Hop, Jazz and Contemporary will have students honing their skills. While some choreography will be created by our teachers, students will have a chance to make up their own dances and record them. Campers will enjoy daily recreational swim, games, gym time and a lesson on the climbing wall.
