Summer Dance Camps: Los Explorers (Ages 3-5)

We guide our Explorers on a multi-sensory journey around the rhythms, stories, and natural wonders of three featured countries. 

Los Explorers Summer Dance Camps (Ages 3-5)



Our Explorers will jump and create throughout the streets of Brazil, experience the wonder of moving through the mountains of Argentina, and learn the songs and dances of Spain in our week-long camp adventures. We guide our Explorers on a multi-sensory journey around the rhythms, stories, and natural wonders of these featured countries. 

Every week culminates in an open-studio invitation for loved ones to witness and celebrate their Explorer’s journey. Ven con nosotros! Join us!
Each week-long camp is Monday through Friday from 9AM-12PM with the exception of the final FAMILIES’ PICK week, (Wednesday, July 5th through Saturday, July 8th ).

$425 per week-long camp. Families' Pick Camp is $350 due to shorter duration.

Parent Testimonial

"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.”
