Join Us for Camp Kate 2017!
Directed by Kate Jablonski, CAMP KATE is a three-day summer dance intensive. Dancers have the opportunity to train with Kate in an intimate, positive, and fun setting. Classes in jazz, contemporary, musical theater, technique, progressions, conditioning, improvisation, and partnering – all taught by Kate herself – are included. In addition to classes, dancers are able to participate in the Campers’ Choreography Review, watch an original Kate Jablonski production at a discounted price, and perform in an impressive closing showcase for their family and friends. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to work with Kate and learn from her unique and animated teaching style!
Join Us for Camp Kate Kids!!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to dance like the big kids? Now is your chance! We are proud to introduce Camp Kate Kids, a summer dance workshop designed specifically for ages 5-7. Learn from Kate Jablonski, the artistic director of Beyond Words Dance Company and The Kate Jablonski Statement. You’ll be amazed at what your little dancer can learn in just two days while also having so much fun with Kate and her crew.
Campers’ Choreography Review
Participate in this rare opportunity to showcase a routine and receive feedback from Kate Jablonski and a panel of select judges. Rather than a competition, this supportive showcase environment provides constructive feedback for positive growth in each individual dancer. Campers are encouraged to bring works in progress, student choreography, or pieces from previous competition seasons. Each entry receives audio feedback from Kate, an adjudicated score, a certificate of participation, and the opportunity to receive the coveted “Kate’s Choice Award” which is then filmed and posted on Kate Jablonski’s YouTube channel.
“My favorite thing about Camp Kate (besides dancing with Miss Kate!) is meeting all the dancers that come from all over the world!”
“Camp Kate pushed me every day; it allowed me to step outside my comfort zone and explore new techniques. I absolutely loved every day…I hope I can return for years to come!!!!”
“My daughter has attended Camp Kate for the past 3 years in the intermediate (8-12 year old) division. Although it is only 3 days, I am always amazed at how much technique, choreography and conditioning can be packed into such a short period of time! Kate is incredibly talented – there is such detail in her unique choreography, and she is also very nurturing and supportive of each dancer who attends. Every year my daughter has left this intensive feeling challenged and inspired, and continues to work on what she has learned from Kate throughout the year. I would definitely recommend Camp Kate to anyone who is able to attend!”
“My experience at Camp Kate was unlike any other camp/ convention I’ve ever been to! After the first day Kate knew almost everyone’s names, which really made everyone feel at home and comfortable at the studio. Kate and her assistants were very involved in making sure everyone had the best experience possible, and they did an amazing job! I will definitely be making the return journey from Saskatchewan to Chicago for next years Camp Kate. “
“My favorite thing about Camp Kate is seeing all the wonderful dancers and learning a variety of different styles of dance.”
“My daughter’s first experience at Camp Kate built up her stage confidence tremendously. Creating a dance and participating in the showcase surrounded by such exquisite talent was her favorite activity all summer! She can’t wait to come back.”
