Summer Camps 2017

Healthy Kids Camps (Grades PreK-5)

Design Dance is pleased to offer our new Healthy Kids Camps! Join us and our community partners as we learn about healthy eating and food preparation through hands on activities and meal-making! We'll take our knowledge of nutrition and our bodies and explore how movement and dance make us healthier, happier, and more energetic. As we create, dance and explore we'll build lifetime friendships and learn skills and lessons that will give us the foundation to make healthy choices as we grow!
