At Summer Dance Camp we prioritise that everyone gets the optimal experience and educational value.
As a camp for all levels and ages, we sort all participants into level and age-based groups to allow each participant to get the optimal education and instruction corresponding to one’s current level. This may therefore result in you being sorted into another group than most of your friends or those you usually practice with.
This is also to make sure that all groups are not over-crowded during groups in smaller halls.
We therefore kindly ask all participants to follow the schedule settled for their respective groups. You are more than welcome to visit other group’s lessons, when your own group has free practice. We kindly request that visitors adapt to the hosting group’s level and language, and that visitors make room for the hosting group’s dancers.
When you sign up to the camp, we kindly request your input concerning competition level and age group.
Please see below how we define the different levels for you to use when entering our camp.
