Flip, Dance & Circus Camp, Age 5-11
This popular non-competitive camp is a fun filled week of mat, dance, and circus skills!
What can your body do? How can we become stronger? We'll work daily on skills such as rolls, jumps, handstands, round-offs and cartwheels. We’ll choreograph cool dances using 8-counts to popular, appropriate music that the kids help pick, and do fun creative movement activities. Dances include a culmination of skills we learn, such as a circus dance!
Campers will work individually and in teams to become human sculptures, do mirror dance, and more. Circus skills such as balancing feathers, juggling beanbags and scarves, clown acts and specialties will be learned using the music of Cirque du Soleil. Carnival games are always fun, with jumping frogs, ring toss and throwing beanbags. We can even make up some of our own. We'll even play fun games like TAP, Clean Up After the Elephant, Caught in the Clown Car, Musical Hoops and more!
Campers will incorporate their new skills into routines for an exciting Gym Show on Friday! Please bring a healthy snack, flip-flops and water bottle daily.
