Los Explorers Camps are the passport to discovering Latino cultures. Campers will have fun moving their way through varied and diverse dances, songs, artwork, and landscapes, while traveling through Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico. This is perfect adventure camp for both boys and girls — join us for this multi-sensory journey of the rhythms, stories, and wonders of these featured countries!

Explorer Camps take place Monday-Friday and encompass creative dance, arts & crafts, cultural dance, and music & songs. These globetrotters graduate inspired by this artistic immersion with enhanced skills in socialization, independence, and self-confidence, returning to the world as stronger citizens. A little bit of everything and a whole lot of fun, campers culminate in an open-studio showing for loved ones to witness and celebrate their Explorer’s journey.

TESTIMONIALS


"I think you have a real jewel of an idea in surrounding the children not only with the dance and music of a place, but also with a real sense of adventure and love of other cultures. When we walked into Miss Lana's studio yesterday to the sound of coquis, it truly felt like we had left NYC and traveled to Puerto Rico. I believe many parents would love nothing more than to instill a love of travel and respect for other cultures, and I have seen no one teach it the way Ballet Hispánico does.” 
- Madeline Tsingopoulos, Los Explorers Summer Dance Camps Parent
