Ballet Day Camp
After mornings dedicated to French-language learning, campers will join their studio at Spadina Campus.
Throughout play, dance class and costume designing, participants will be immersed in the world of ballet dancing …all in French!
Circle Time and creative work – inspired by famous French artists, campers will create artwork based on aspects of dance and its production (eg. Sculpting a dancer inspired by the work of Edgar Degas)
Dance lesson – campers will learn an array of classical ballet terms (in French!) through daily practice and repetition
Improvisational movement – campers will explore musicality, expression, and performance
Scenography – campers will work creatively to produce their own dance performance, working with backdrops, costume accessories, and props
Choreography – campers will be involved in choreographic choices as they learn a dance to perform at the end of the session
Age: 5 to 10 years old
French proficiency level: beginner or intermediate
Listening and speaking in French – campers will learn basic communication skills in French whilst having fun!
Dance and movement vocabulary – campers will learn the terminology of classical dance through daily practice, and naturally absorb notions of space and direction while in class.
Cultural knowledge – campers will learn through doing as they create pieces of art rooted in French culture and history and inspired by great artists who loved dance.
Bethany Grace Lee
A physical art form, dance is my passion and never ceases to intrigue and delight me. Classically trained under the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, my experience teaching dance began over ten years ago and has brought me to many different studios and schools across Toronto. My deepest wish in teaching dance is to share an understanding of how artistic expression through movement brings health to the mind and the body.
