If you are passionate about dance, music, drama and love to perform, then the Aldine ISD Summer Dance and Performing Arts Camp is for you!

The camp is open to young people between the ages of 6 and 17 who will receive the opportunity to experience the magic of performance through classes in various styles of dance.

Two sessions of the camp will be offered. The first will be held June 3-6 and the second will be offered June 10-13. The camp will be held at the Carver High School Dance Room (2100 South Victory Drive).

The cost is $75 per session. Payments must be made in cash. Individuals can also pay online at http://aldine.revtrak.net and then select Elementary Performing Arts, select Aldine Dance Co., select summer camp options, add to cart and then make your payment.

Parents are asked to bring their child’s last report card to registration to verify grade level. Sessions will run from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Female campers need to wear black leotards, while male campers need to wear black pants and a white T-shirt. Campers also need to have a pair of black tights (footless or footed), ballet shoes, Hip Hop attire, and have their hair arranged neatly and out of their face. Campers will not be allowed to wear jewelry of any kind. Campers also need to bring a sack lunch and bottled water every day to camp.

The Summer Dance and Performing Arts Camp have been created to satisfy the artistic needs of kids of all ages. Students of all dance abilities are welcome to attend. Participation in the camp offers each student the opportunity to develop existing talents or to realize new, undiscovered talents within themselves. The camp’s goal is to motivate children to achieve their true potential in dance within a positive and encouraging environment.

At the camp, students will receive training in dance warm-ups, strength building, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness and basic injury prevention.

Also during Session II, auditions for the Aldine Dance and Performing Arts Company will be held. Students will be notified after Session II if they have made it to the final round of auditions. The Aldine Dance and Performing Arts Company consists of students from Aldine ISD. These students receive many performance opportunities to demonstrate their talents. They are invited to perform for numerous events in and out of the city of Houston. In the past the company has traveled to San Antonio and Dallas to perform, in addition to performing at district and community events. Additionally, company members will compete in at least one major competition per year.

Auditions for the Aldine Dance Company are separate from the Aldine ISD Dance and Performing Arts Camp. Attending the summer camp does not guarantee placement in the Aldine Dance and Performing Arts Company.
