SUMMER DANCE CAMPS 2019
Summer camps help to
eliminate any gaps in basic technique and will introduce dancers to new skills
while having fun with MacConmara friends.
These camps will prepare students for some of the more complicated steps
in their classes for next year. Students
in MacConmara camps drill a LOT of Irish dance skills in a short period of
time. Due to the intensity, students who
participate in a summer camp are often able to advance more quickly.
