It’s summer and you know what that means – vacation and a lot of free time for your kids. Now you can help them take advantage of their free time and ask them to join the best summer dance camp. Dance camp will allow them to spend some amazing time dancing with choreographers, teachers and other dancers. As exciting and exhilarating as this sounds, there are a few things that your children can do to get the most out of their camp experiences so that they can acquire skills and make memories that will last them a lifetime.

Here are a few tips to make summer dance camp more fun and productive for your children:

1. Go in with a positive attitude

A dancer’s attitude is what helps them enjoy their time at a summer dance camp. As a parent, you need to help your child understand that the camp will be a positive learning experience so that they go in without any apprehension. If they get nervous, have a pep talk with them to offer some encouragement before sending them off to class. If your child is very young, telling them that camp is for “big girls and boys” usually helps spark their interest a little more.

2. Form connections with the other dancers

Being a dancer isn’t just about picking up steps and acing it on stage. It is also about the bonds that fellow dancers form. It can really help your child if he or she attends camp with a friend, which ensures that they already have a connection, thus making the transition easier. You can also encourage them to strike up friendships with the other students, as they have the potential to turn into lifelong relationships.

3. Respect and trust the teachers

The best way to get the most out of dance camp is to respect and trust the teachers. When students demonstrate respect for their teachers, they feel more accepted and thus become more willing to help. Also, when students trust their teachers’ knowledge, they get a better insight into the world of dance, which enhances their learning.

These are some strategies to help your ensure your children maximize their summer dance camp experiences.
