For five consecutive days, BGCSF members will have the opportunity to take classes from professional teaching artists on-site at San Francisco Ballet School. Summer Dance Camp is open to BGCSF members between the ages of 6–18.

Summer Dance Camp will be held at San Francisco Ballet School (455 Franklin Street at Fulton) from 11 am–4 pm on June 11–15, 2018. Summer Dance Camp will culminate with a free showcase performance for friends and family on Friday, June 15, at 5 pm.

Summer Dance Camp participants will learn a range of dance styles, including ballet, dance theatre, hip-hop, Latin dance, Bhangra, Bollywood, Chinese folk dance, and West African dance and drumming. Participants should wear comfortable clothes that allow for movement and dance; dance shoes are not required. Participants are expected to attend all five days of Summer Dance Camp from 11am–4pm, June 11–15, 2018.
