Summer camps are a great way to enrich your child’s summer vacation. We have so many incredible camps offered by our member groups we thought we would spend the next week spotlighting each one of them!
Today’s summer camp features the wonderful programs from the Louisville Ballet School. Learn dance from the best this summer!
The Louisville Ballet School offers a distinguished youth program in dance. Our youth workshops are designed to develop coordination, musicality, and kinetic awareness, as well as to instill a love for dance and the arts. The experience and awareness instilled from participation in dance as a child will build skills valuable for a lifetime.
