Young ballerinas learn about those “leading lines” as they extend their arms while remembering to keep those toes pointed! The city is hosting two upcoming summer camps for young dancers. The Creative Camp is for three- and four-year-olds

Summer dance camps sure to enchant the kids

Experience the wide-eyed wonderment of the enchanted forest and dance this summer

Experience the wide-eyed wonderment of the enchanted forest and dance with make-believe fairies, princesses and princes and heroes this summer.

In the Creative Movement and Dance camp, three- and four-year-old children will feel like the smallest creature or the tallest trees, move swiftly like the animals or bend and sway with the wind. And, who knows, they may even meet some mythical creatures too.

The camp takes place at the Community Centre Aug. 20-24, from 1:15-2:15 p.m. The cost is $35.

Ballet camp for children ages 5-8 will highlight basic classical ballet positions and moves that will be incorporated into a story of adventures as dancers travel through the enchanted forest meeting the inhabitants of this beautiful and mysterious world.

Ballet camp is scheduled from Aug. 20-24, from 2:30-4 p.m. at the Community Centre. The cost is $50.

Magi Schoffield-Reid leads both enchanting camps.
