At 11:00 am in the studio we’ll be having our showcase! This is a fun opportunity for our ballroom camp participants to show their families what they have learned at camp this year. Wear your camp t-shirt if you have one. Following the showcase we’ll have a potluck barbecue and swimming party. Please bring a large side dish and/or dessert to share, we’ll provide hotdogs and buns. Please make sure your swimming suits are modest (no bikinis, please). Please bring your own towels. Shorter swimmers need to bring their own life jackets and have a parent observe while they swim! We’ll let the younger kids swim for the first 45 minutes while the older kids visit/play games, then the older kids can swim. We’ll end by 4:00 pm.
WHAT TO WEAR/ WHAT TO BRING FOR THE BALLROOM CAMP:
Wear comfortable clothes you can move in, like shorts and a t-shirt. If skirts are worn, leggings must be worn underneath. NO tank tops, bare stomachs, low cut blouses, or short shorts are allowed. Girls, please pull your hair off your face and neck. Boys, if sports shorts are worn you must wear compression shorts underneath. Dancers, wear your ballroom shoes if you have them. If you don’t have ballroom shoes wear tennis shoes or church shoes that don’t fall off. No flip flops. We’ll be having ice cream breaks during camp. If your dancer has food restrictions, please send them with alternate cold snacks and you can put them in our freezer.
**Bring a water bottle!!! It gets really hot in the afternoon/evening.

We need all registration and payments in by Monday, August 6th so we can order t-shirts. To guarantee your dancer a t-shirt, please register by then. Dancers registering after August 6th probably won’t receive a t-shirt, but we’ll still love to have you at camp!
PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS, ESPECIALLY BOYS, TO COME TO BALLROOM CAMP. It’s a great time to try ballroom and try our studio without a huge commitment. If they enjoy it, we’d love to invite them to participate on one of our ballroom teams.
WE’LL SEE YOU AT CAMP!!!
As always, let me know if you have any questions. Annette 208-589-0382
