Summer Dance Immersion
Our Summer Dance Immersion is a unique dance experience designed to bring together dancers in grades 7-12 from studios across the region to develop artistic growth, cultivate existing dance technique, and challenge new technical development. Students will work with master instructors and experience new dance styles to deepen their love of dance through their versatility. This dance camp will be a gathering place of excellence in dance, designed to complement, enhance, and further students’ own studio training.
Students will live on the Baldwin Wallace University campus and participate in a variety of dance and social activities. Dance Immersion will allow the students to foster lasting connections and powerful friendships with other dancers.
Dance Immersion is not to be missed!
Note: Dance Immersion has a limited number of participants. We recommend registering as soon as possible to ensure participation. There will be no exception to the number of dancers allowed at the Summer Dance Immersion.

All dedicated dance students with a willingness to learn are encouraged to attend Dance Immersion. While we will have a lot of fun during the week, students must be focused on growing their technique, learning new skills, and developing their artistry.
Through a placement process, students will be placed in classes based on their individual ability level. We want to be sure that every student is placed in classes that will benefit them the most and enable the greatest opportunity for personal growth.
Placement videos must be received by the final registration deadline. You may register for the Summer Dance Immersion to reserve your spot early and send in your placement materials later, but all materials must be received by the registration deadline.
Dance Immersion is a residential camp. Dancers will have the opportunity to live in dormitories on the beautiful Baldwin Wallace University campus.
Dancers will be placed in rooms with other campers of a similar age. Dancers may request a specific roommate. We do our best to accommodate requests but cannot guarantee all requests.
Tuition is $875.00.
Dance Immersion tuition covers all housing, meals, and dance instruction. Tuition may be split into a payment plan that works best for your family.
Through generous support from the Nord Family Foundation and Nordson Corporation Foundation, limited tuition assistance opportunities are available to Lorain County residents for Dance Immersion. To apply, students should complete the online registration (when open) and indicate they are interested in tuition assistance.
Students will be notified of their award on a rolling basis beginning in March, 2023.
