We are excited to introduce our new Camp Terrier Aerial and Dance Arts Program! Our camps are for dancers and aerialists for all levels ages 8-11. Students will hone their aerial and technical dance skills in a fun and supportive environment, collaborate with our teachers to learn and create choreography and improve their performance skills for the culminating informal showing on the final day. The two-week sessions will culminate in an informal performance on the aerial apparatus as well as choreography by counselors and campers, themselves. The one-week session will have a final “photo shoot” where campers can show families what they have worked on in class. The mornings will be dedicated to dance styles, with contemporary, hip hop, jazz, ballet, and choreography finishing with a daily recreational swim period. Weather permitting, lunch will be eaten outdoors. The afternoons will be dedicated to aerial skills and acrobatics with one of the BU Dance program’s aerial instructors. Other fun activities include gym time, games, and costume projects.

Campers at Extended Day will have access to a diverse range of activities from 4 – 6 pm, including arts & crafts and gym games. Recreational swim and climbing may also be offered depending on the availability of the space.
