We were originally going to have pictures at an old railroad yard, but they are under construction. It's almost impossible to get a barn rental on a Saturday.

Please mark your calendars!

*Please note - Improv camp, Lady Gaga camp, and the Partnering camp dates are still TBD so you will not see them online quite yet.

ATTENDANCE (IMPORTANT)-Per our student contract, a student may not miss any classes the week of a competition, or risk being pulled from that competition. We will make exceptions for people still traveling for spring break into the week of 4/1 but we need to be notified ahead of time.

Upcoming travel opportunities-Looking out to 2020, we will be offering 2 optional travel opportunities.
