We are excited to give our students, going into the 4th grade and up, new opportunities to expand their skills and creativity in dance!

By combining dance with the art of theater performance, children learn about themselves, confidence,

artistry, story, and expression. This introductory camp is an opportunity for your child to have an

insider experience, and a preview of things to come, don’t miss out:

July 27th - July 31st 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


Using the well-known story of Peter Pan, students will put together simple scenes and dance sample choreography

in a unique storytelling experience.  Students will rotate parts and experience the performance process.

This week long intensive will be led by Alicia Swanson and the SMDC staff and will include:





SMDC will be following all state regulated health and safety protocol with distancing, numbers, sanitation, etc.

This camp will only be offered as an in-studio program.  If LA County returns to safer-at-home orders, all tuition will be refunded in full.
