Summer Dance Immersion | Grades 5-8


A residential or commuter camp for 5th grade and middle school aspiring dancers that gets you experiencing different dance genres, developing your technique, and increasing your artistry! You’ll make new friends whether you stay on campus with us or return home in the evenings. Come grow as a dancer through rehearsals, classes, and a final showcase!

Caring staff, a safe campus, outstanding dance facilities, excellent food service, and comfortable residence halls combine to make each camper’s experience a positive one. Campers have the option to commute daily to campus or live in real college dorms. All campers will attend rehearsals Baldwin Wallace buildings. The BW student dining hall provides delicious, healthy meals; all meals are provided for residential campers, and lunch and dinner are provided for day campers.

We know that your children are precious, and BW summer program staff go the extra mile to watch over all campers. Certified dance instructors and other adults supervise all classes and activities. We have a nurse on call around the clock who supervises and dispenses all medications. Attendance is taken at all activities. Faculty and staff live in the residence halls and are responsible for supervision. Campus security personnel are always available and all dorms remain locked 24/7 with key card access only.

Afternoon activities may include swimming, outdoor activities, and game days. Evening activities may include a trip to Swings-N-Things, a movie night, or the counselor talent show.
