If your children are interested in experiencing other cultures, the instructors at Dance Around the World can offer some insight. They specialize in dances from across the globe, and they’re teaching them to youngsters this summer at The STAR Centre of Havre de Grace, not far from our Chesapeake apartments.
Your kids can sign up for one of two week-long sessions, depending on their age. Children in grades two through five are welcome at the first session from July 5th to 8th, with older kids in grades six through 12 invited to the second session from July 11th to 15th. Each week, students learn how to flow through dance routines inspired by cultures from every part of the world, from the Latin American Flamenco to the Viennese Waltz. They’ll master Bollywood moves, learn how to move artfully to hip-hop music, and even get introduced to dances like the Umfundalai, Bharatanatyam, and more. The camp itself runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily with before- and after-care options available. Registration fees are $120 for the younger age group and $150 for the older age group.
