Appel Farm’s Dance Program is growing by leaps and bounds! We are offering more classes than ever in our newly renovated Valero Room.

Generous donations from Board Members, Marcy Bliss, and Tim Alles have allowed us to add brand new Harlequin dance floors, mirrors, and barres to accommodate the growing needs of this fun, supportive, and inspiring department.


Dance majors cover a variety of genres to meet the interests of our campers. Everyone’s welcome to come express themselves with instructions tailored to meet the needs of beginning through advanced skill levels.

Major I Classes

  • Ballet and Hip-Hop

Major II Classes

  • Jazz and Modern/Contemporary Dance


Our Dance Department updates its minor class lists to reflect the unique strengths of our expert instructors. They change from summer to summer but are always tailored to meet the needs of interested campers.
