Our summer dance camp is for children ages 6-12 who want to try some new styles like hip hop and musical theatre, or maybe practice ones that we already love. No experience is necessary – this week will be an opportunity to do it all in a fun, non-competitive atmosphere!

She’s returning to us from London, England and her most recent role in the musical It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman! at Leicester Square Theatre. Sarah Kennedy
