Get Your Groove On! Modern Dance & Zumba

Mon – Fri, 9 - 3PM
June 24th – 28th
Ages 8 - 14

Does your child love to dance? Campers will split their days between Modern Dance and Zumba with our highly trained dance instructors. Both disciplines will culminate in a student performance.

MODERN DANCE: Campers will explore new ways to move with floorwork and methods of improvisation used in multiple genres of dance. Campers will learn a few short combinations based in various dance forms such as Jazz, Broadway, and Modern. These combinations will focus strongly on intention, musicality, and movement quality.

Instructor: Molly Lugo started her dance career here in the Hudson Valley with Figures in Flight Dance Company, studying and performing with this group for 9 years prior to college. She graduated as a dance major from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in New York City, in 2011. There, she studied different techniques such as ballet, tap, modern, jazz, and Broadway. While at AMDA, she also studied voice, acting, and musical theatre. After graduating, Molly worked with Susan Slotnick and Figures in Flight Dance Company as a rehearsal director, choreographer, and ballet and modern dance teacher.

ZUMBA: This portion of camp focuses on kid-friendly routines. Zumba involves dance and aerobic movements performed to energetic music. The choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo. Squats and lunges are also included. Learning Zumba helps develop a healthy lifestyle and incorporates fitness as a natural part of a child’s life by making fitness fun.

Instructor: Holly Paynter is a certified Zumba instructor and has been teaching classes at High Meadow for over 5 years. She absolutely loves teaching Zumba and makes every class feel like a party!
