This camp is for End of the summer review, to keep dancers in shape, and the dancers will also get a jump start on new material for the new dance year. Lots of fun activities planned for this week, you don’t want to miss it. There is a fun theme planned for each day for your dancer to dress up and win prizes. A camp t-shirt is provided if registered before July 17.

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 the 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.


Prerequisites are required for each camp based on class level during the school year at MacConmara academy. If in doubt of which camp to attend, please ask your teacher.
