Plier (to bend), Étendre (to stretch), Relever (to rise), Glisser (to slide or glide), Sauter (to jump), Élancer (to dart), Tourner (to turn). These were the terms that were flying through the air in the Beit Am Aleph as the dance class was in full swing. It felt like being in a ballet studio!

Shira said, ” I chose dance because I used to dance outside of camp and I stopped dancing. I felt that this would give me the passion and the motivation to possibly start again.”

Eliana said, “it’s really nice to have a hard-core dance that is intense and serious.”

Harper said, “I’ve never taken a dance class before but I wanted to try something new, and I’m glad I did!”

More about the program- Campers will be challenged to step out of their comfort zone and express themselves through various dance styles including but not limited to Jazz, Hip Hop, and Contemporary. The focus will be on expression, intention, and most of all- having fun! We will explore improvisation, technique, choreography, and performance skills. This program encourages campers to be themselves while learning new approaches of exploring movement.
