FREE DANCE CAMP

 

SWING, ART,  AND ALL THAT JAZZ

A Swing Dance Cultural Camp

July 30 - August 3
Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm
Full day

Explore the living traditions of swing dance and music at The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas (ASC). Under expert supervision, students will practice a different style of dance each day and explore its relationship to music and African American cultural heritage through hands-on activities. Throughout the week, students will curate and produce a video on the history of African American dance to accompany a painting by Palmer Hayden in ASC’s permanent collection. This video will be made available in ASC’s gallery alongside the painting and on ASC’s website, allowing future generations to learn from the students of this camp. Limited space of 20 students.

This camp is for gifted and talented students in Arkansas who are in 7th, 8th, and 9th grades during the current school year (2017-2018). Camp participants do not need to be in gifted and talented programs at their school. If selected, this camp is provided at no cost to the student. To be considered for this camp, please complete the following application.

This camp made possible by a grant from the Arkansas Department of Education.

CAMP POLICIES AND FEES

Eligibility: All are welcome to attend camps, and financial aid scholarships are available. Age parameters have been established according to curriculum content and expected behavior for a given age. ASC camps are designed for creativity and problem solving which might be a new process for the student. Parent or guardian will be called immediately if behavior issues arise. No refund will be given.

Lunches and snacks: The Arts and Science Center does not provide lunch for campers. There will be snack breaks and a lunch break for full day camps (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.). ASC has a fridge for campers to store their lunches in. If a full-day camper is dropped off without lunch, we will contact their parent or guardian to come deliver a lunch. ASC provides light snacks for snack breaks, please inform ASC of any food sensitivities so we can try to accommodate all campers’ needs.

Drop-off and pick-up: An adult must accompany the camper for drop-off on the first day of camp; after the first day, the camper may come in alone. Any camper without parent or guardian permission to self-checkout must be picked up by an adult that registered the camper or is listed as an emergency contact.Adults will need to present ID or use a “kid code,” a private password that you choose at registration to facilitate a quick and easy pick up process. Adults not listed on the camper’s registration may only pick up the camper if they can provide the child’s kid code. Campers 16 years of age and older may self-checkout with written permission from their parent or guardian. Once a camper has checked him- or herself out, they may not remain on the ASC premises without adult supervision.
