McLeod Dance Camps for kids give youth the chance to train in dance fundamentals, focused technique, and most importantly learn that making mistakes is a pivotal part of growth. Created by American Choreographer Sean McLeod, participants will study a variety of dance disciplines including McLeod Technique Modern, MT Afro Hip-Hop, and Reinforced Motor Function. Not only will they walk away with dance knowledge, but the ability to take lessons learned throughout dance and apply them in their everyday lives.
