Does your child love to dance? Are they ready for something totally new, totally exciting, and never been done at Collingwood School of Dance before!?! I am so thrilled to announce our NEW Love to Dance Camp with the CSD faculty and some of the industry’s top choreographers!

Wait a minute… what do I mean by the industry’s top choreographers?
I am extremely excited to present a brand new, special workshop opportunity for our fabulous dancers. We’re getting new-age and high-tech over here! As part of your enrolment, you’re going to get a live, interactive workshop class with one of the industry’s top choreographers! When I say “industry’s top choreographers”, I mean choreographers and dancers that have been featured on “So You Think You Can Dance” for example. In this live and interactive workshop they’ll share their tips, techniques and choreography live from LA to help you become a better dancer, right from the comfort of our dance studio in Collingwood.

Not only will you get this amazing live, interactive class with a celebrity choreographer, but we’ll also be running a variety of other dance classes in conjunction with the classes our CSD Faculty will be teaching. You’re going to get so much new and inspirational content in just one week, while still maintaining the high quality technique that is so important to our classes at Collingwood School of Dance.

Here’s where the high-tech comes in… Right now this is a fairly new concept in the dance world (about a year old), but these live and on-demand classes with celebrity dance choreographers is projected to take off in the next five years. I’m so excited to jump on board with Collingwood School of Dance, because these classes and workshops are going to give our dancers the opportunity for additional inspiration while learning from amazing, high profile dancers, performers and choreographers without having to jump on a plane to LA!

We’ll set up high-quality cameras in the studio so that our choreographer can see us from LA, and a large projection screen and projector connected to my computer so that we can see the choreographer from our studio in Collingwood. The workshop will run exactly like any other dance class and dancers will get to interact, ask questions and receive feedback, and corrections from the choreographer. How cool will it be to say that you have actually spoken with one of these celebrity choreographers?

Your week of camp will be broken down into two or three dance classes a day with a short snack break in between. Love to Dance Campers will be doing jazz, contemporary, musical theatre, ballet (pointe for advanced dancers), stretch & strength classes and more.

Please see below for details:

July 10th to 14th – 12:30-3:00pm

This camp is $300+hst (and this includes the live, interactive workshop with a celebrity choreographer valued at $75 per dancer). A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of registration and the balance is due on July 1st, 2017.

  • Our daughters have enjoyed dancing at CSD the past 6 years progressing thru the Prima classes to now competing. CSD is a fantastic school for our girls to learn technique, respect, discipline, commitment, teamwork and other life skills that will carry them thru well into their adult lives. We look forward to moving to the new studio and the 2015/16 dance year. Thank you CSD!!!! The adult zumba classes with Elise are great too!!!!

  • Miss Elise is amazing with our daughter, and the office staff are amazing. I heard about this school on Facebook and just from checking it out at the open house day really made up our minds. Our daughter loves miss Elise and would be heartbroken if we went elsewhere.

  • We love the parent and tot class on Saturday mornings. After only two classes Ella already loves jumping up and down and pretending to be a lion. We can't wait for more and love dancing with all our friends, new and old. Thanks so much!

  • This is our first year at CSD and my 3 year old daughter couldn't be happier. We joined as we were told CSD was the best around town. Ms. Elise is one of the reasons why we stay with the program. She is just amazing with the kids. My daughter just loves her.

  • When we moved back to Collingwood I was looking for programs for our daughter. We signed up for parent and tot class and have never left. Brooklyn loves the program and Ms. Elise. When Brooklyn turned 3 she attended the dance camp and is now in prima one.We recommend the program to all our friends with young children. Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience for our daughter !

  • I enrolled my daughter in dance because she was always dancing around the house. There was different time slots which means that our busy schedule was not a problem. We stayed because my daughter loves going. She can't wait for dance class every week. Everyone is friendly. Ms. Elise really encourages all the children to participate and makes the class fun. When my daughter is old enough she will be enrolling in prima 1.
