Welcome to Creative Dance Adventures! We provide imaginative, multi-sensory dance classes and performing arts camps throughout the Austin area.
Our unique approach to dance and performance arts education allows children the freedom to discover their creative and movement potential in a safe, fun and non-competitive atmosphere.
Creative Dance Classes
Creative dance classes introduce children to the multifaceted language of dance – including movement concepts of space, time, energy, body placement and awareness, as well as basic ballet terminology and technique.
Each narrative-based lesson is carefully crafted to be interactive and engaging, teaching through a child’s fundamental mode of learning – play.
Children gain self-awareness, self-confidence, and a sense of community through individual exploration, group work, evaluation and reflection.
Our unique approach to teaching is imaginative, challenging and playful, instilling a love of movement that fosters a love of learning and arts appreciation for a lifetime.
KIDSTAR Performing Arts Summer Camps
Kidstar Performing Arts Summer Camps offer hands-on creativity and fun. Children are immersed in choreography, art, music, dance and drama games as they build an exciting child-centered musical. The camp experience culminates with a fully-produced musical for family and friends.
