2017 Summer Dance Camps/Cards

About Our Dance Program 

Arts Avenue for Kids dance classes are designed to help the students develop excellence in dance while giving honor to God!  Dance is a very effective way to instill poise and confidence in children.  It’s also a wonderful way to develop artistic and creative abilities at the same time as developing physical strength and flexibility.

Our Mission

At Arts Avenue, our dance instructors focus on creating a loving and fun environment for every student while maintaining  quality technique for strong and skilled dancers.

Arts Avenue for Kids is not affiliated with a church body. Everyone is welcome! We would love for your child to join us on a journey of learning the arts. In everything we do, we will strive to give honor to God!

Summer Dance Classes/Camps

**Below is the list of our summer dance program options.  Choose from a dance punch-card for classes once a week or choose one of our camps – or both!

**To register for a punch card or camp, please visit our “register” page.

Dance Punch Cards

We know that summers can be busy so choose from our 4-session or 7-session punch cards!  Your punch card can be used on any weeks you choose.  For our young dancers we have a special theme for each session and for our older dancers, we have different genres.  Once registered, we will make a punch card for your child which you will receive on the first session you attend.  Then simply bring your punch card to each session your child attends throughout the summer.  Easy, flexible, and fun!!!
