Summer Camp

Dance & Theater Camp August 2024

In partnership with San Francisco Youth Ballet Academy, CAIS is proud to offer Dance & Theater Camp this August 2024. Campers will learn performing arts skills and have the opportunity to present their work onstage at the end of each week. Campers will participate in activities including ballet, creative dance, ballet pantomime and character acting, and music theater style songs and dance. 

Not only will the campers learn performing arts skills, they will also have the opportunity to see how the skills come together for a stage performance.
