• 2018 Summer Gems Registration information 

     

    Summer program mission:

    Is to elevate each dancer to their fullest potential physically, mentally and technically. Every dancer goes through stages and has a place to start and a goal to reach. We are dedicated to the development and growth of every dancer that enters this program and will help them to reach their personal goals. Students will leave with increased confidence, self-esteem, knowledge of dance and the Arts as well as improved technique.

     

    Program Description:

    This is a 6-week summer program designed and geared toward male and female students ages 5-14 who show great interest in dance and the Performing Arts, with two programs (beginner & advance). The summer program provides students with professional training by instructors who have over 25 years of experience in the arts who are local & international artist. The program offers classes in Ballet, Modern, Tap, Hip-Hop, West African, Afro-Caribbean, Liturgical, Flamingo & Step. Campers will perform all around the city and participate in Master Classes and workshops taught by professional dancers while visiting some of Boston’s prestigious dance centers.
