Carlsbad Lancer Dancer Junior Campers

by The Editors on June 28, 2011

Hip Hop Carlsbad

The week of August 1, 2011 Carlsbad’s national dance competition award winning Lancer Dancers will be sharing some of their deep dance skills with young dancers grades K-7 during Jr. Lancer Dancer Summer Camp.

Team Co-Captain, Camille Posard shares her theory on success, “Last year we were the Cinderella Story winning the National Championship with 8 rookies on the team and 5 freshmen, but it was hard work and determination not experience that made it possible. We will be sharing what we learned with the dancers at camp this summer”. . . . The Lancer Dancers are excited to be able to share their dance skills, choreography, and teamwork with other young dancers during this week of camp. Their goal for the camp is to inspire others with their love of dance, but more importantly, how teamwork, dedication, and hard work can take you just about anywhere that you set your sights on! Lancer Dancer, Katie Park, describes how camp is about more than dance, “Young dancers will not only learn dances, but leadership qualities and discipline that help you succeed in other aspects of life.”

All the five-day camp requires the will to dance and a $100 donation to the Lancer Dancers. For more information click here and/or follow the jump. [click to continue…]
