Dance Summer Camp 2021
We regret to inform you that GSA Dance Camp for the summer of 2021 has been cancelled.
In these unprecedented times, all of us are making adjustments to try and limit the spread of COVID-19. We are all acutely aware of the need to protect our personal safety and those of our students.
This decision has not been made lightly, but the safety of our students, faculty and parents is our utmost concern.
Thank you for your interest in GSA Dance Summer Camp. We hope to see you at our live performances next school year and also to work with you in the Summer of 2022!
Join us for a week of dance training in many different styles!
