Camp Cavise – Children’s Performing Arts Camp
Camp Cavise is a comprehensive day camp program for the child who loves to be on stage. Campers, Kindergarten through 8th grade, will study all forms of dance, including: Jazz, Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Hip Hop, and Modern. They will also study vocal and acting technique, set and costume design, choreography, and script writing each week. In addition to these regular classes, campers will participate in weekly theme games, contests, and “open stage”, where they can perform their other talents. Field trips to Broadway are scheduled. Our two summer sessions will each culminate with an original production designed, written and performed by the campers.

Dance Cavise offers its students an outstanding teaching faculty, including top New York City professionals. With diverse personalities, our teachers bring their unique experience to Camp Cavise, while still maintaining the integrity of our program.
Camp Counselors must be at least 14 years of age. This program enables students to receive tuition assistance by becoming a counselor during Camp Cavise.
