Factory Street Studio Summer Dance Camps
Factory Street Studio is pleased to offer our Summer Dance Camps for the fourth year in a row to students ages 6 through 14. These camps are designed to give students a wide range of dance experiences, from modern to ballet, body percussion and tap, to choreography and improvisation. We are offering four weeklong camps this summer that are sure to be fun and educational!

Summer Camp Guidelines
Studio Environment: Parents and guardians can expect that all faculty and staff will respect the well being of each student, treat her/him fairly, and encourage their growth and self-esteem as dancers as stated in Factory Street’s mission statement. Should any concern or problem arise, do not hesitate to speak with faculty or the Artistic Director.
Snacks: During summer camps for Tech Level 1 and 2, FSS will have snack time where we will distribute healthy snacks. Please let us know if your child has allergies or dietary restrictions that we should know about. Thank you!
Attire: Dancers should wear dance clothes that allow for freedom of movement, but also allow instructors to assess alignment and proper form. We suggest a leotard and tights or leggings, bike shorts, or a close-fitting tank top or t-shirt. Absolutely no jeans, long skirts, or baggy clothing. Long hair should be worn away from the face in a ponytail or bun. For Tech Level 1 and 2 camps, shoes are not required, but students are encouraged to have ballet slippers and tap shoes. For Tech Level 3 and 4 camps, ballet shoes are required for ballet technique classes.
Dancewear can be ordered through the studio.
Communication: As a part of our efforts to become a paperless facility, FSS will send monthly DanceNEWS emails to all families with information about upcoming events, new developments, and any pertinent information about the studio. We ask that families read these newsletters as they often contain helpful reminders, new opportunities for our students, and important information.
Summer Camp Student Drop-off and Pick-up: Students are to arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to camp time. Students should be picked up promptly at the end of camp. Please call the office to let the instructor know your student will be late if you know you are running behind. Let us know if your student is sick and will not be attending class that day.
Tuition and Payments: Tuition must be paid in full no later than the first day of the camp your child is attending. Payments can be made by cash, check, or credit card.
Refunds: No refunds will be given after July 8. Parents and guardians must contact the office in writing if their children will be dropping, and will be responsible for payment for classes that occurred prior to giving notice.
Studio Etiquette: Just as teachers are expected to respect students, students are expected to respect the faculty and staff at FSS as well as the building and studios. As a matter of respect, we ask that students keep talking to a minimum during class and participate fully in the lesson. Students who consistently refuse to follow directions or respect their classmates may be asked to sit out of class. When using the studio, kitchen, lobby, and bathroom areas, students will be expected to clean up after themselves. No food or drink is permitted within the studios with the exception of water bottles. Gum is prohibited during class.
Summer Classes for Tech 5 and 6
Factory Street Studio is pleased to offer four separate Tech 5/6 classes during the summer months— two modern and two ballet technique classes—at both evening and afternoon times. Students are encouraged to enroll in more than one class, and will receive a $15 discount for multiple enrollments (also applies to siblings). Teachers will include guest instructors!
