PRE-PRIMARY CAMPS (ages 3-4)
GDC’s Pre-Primary Camps use storytelling and imagination to engage young dancers’ creativity and inspire a joy for movement. Class time includes elements that focus on primary coordination to enhance motor skills and an introduction to pre-ballet. Each day of camp will include dance class, story and snack time, arts and crafts, and creative movement.
