Music, story, rhythm — Dance! Express yourself through the magic, discipline, and sheer physical energy of dance.
Appel Farm’s Dance Program is growing by leaps and bounds! We are offering more classes than ever, with majors in Ballet, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Modern and Contemporary with differentiated instruction to meet the needs of beginning through advanced dancers. Campers in the Dance program work on technique, choreography, and strength training in process-centered classes balanced with a variety of ensemble performance opportunities.
- Major I classes include : Ballet, and Hip-Hop Dance
- Major II classes include : Jazz, and Modern/Contemporary Dance
Past Dance Minors, which vary every summer and reflect the unique strengths of current staff, have included Choreography, Lyrical, Partner, Pop Funk, 42nd Street Tap and Bollywood Dance.
Last summer, due to generous donations from Board Members, Marcy Bliss and Tim Alles, we added a second Dance Studio to accommodate our growing program. Renovations to the Valero Room, include a Harlequin dance floor, mirrors and barres, and our dancers loved the new space!
