Chattanooga Dance Summer

Summer Camp 2023

For Rising Kindergarteners & First Graders:

Children’s Creative Movement: Fridays 10:00 – 10:45am This special 8 week class is for rising kindergarten and 1st graders. This class will feature creative movement in a variety of styles and genres. Students will begin to learn dance terminology, positions of the feet and arms, musical counts, and basic patterns and choreography. This class will help children appreciate the joy of movement, gain music awareness and rhythm skills, explore dance as a form of personal expression, and nurture artistry with challenging creative dance experiences.  This class is a lot of fun! They will be excited about coming to class every week! 8 Week Session July 7th – August 25th. $120/person (45 minutes) {Maggie Daniel}

For Rising Second through Fourth Graders:

Regardless of whether rising 2nd through 4th grader is a new or experienced dancer, they will love our summer camps! Within this week-long camp, they will learn how to move and dance within the styles of ballet and musical theatre. Students will craft each day, and they will receive a Massari-Wood T-shirt that they will color and take home at the end of each week. They will also have a free performance opportunity at the end of each week! Come to one, two, or all summer camps!

This is our 2023 schedule, along with the ballet they are focusing on each week:

  • June 12 – 16, 2:00 – 5:00 pm: Cinderella
  • June 26 – 30, 2:00 – 5:00 pm: Coppelia
  • July 17 – 21, 2:00 – 5:00 pm: Sleeping Beauty


Dropoff starts at 1:45pm.  Campers are encouraged to bring their own snack and a water bottle.

Campers should dress comfortably, but dancewear is optional. Ballet shoes are preferred.

Our summer camps are a great opportunity to make new friends and, for returning Massari-Wood students, strengthen friendships that began forming during previous dance years. Bring your child and a friend to this pre-dinner activity to release all that summer energy (and give yourself a 3-hour break!). $175 per student, per camp.
