Summer Classes

Summer Registration  -  please register by June 30th.

 

Please sign up for the classes in advance, the drop-in fee is increased by $5.00 per class, and only pay for the classes that your dancer will attend. Class fees are refundable if canceled before June 15th. All students that are planning to audition for the teams should attend summer classes when students are in town. In the past, we have had some students who haven’t danced all summer and took one warm-up class before the auditions and were unable to make a team due to regression in training.

If your dancer can not attend all the classes and you register early, then you will only pay the pre-paid amount for the number of classes your dancer will be attending. You do not pay the drop-in fee for the classes.   If you do not register for classes and want to drop into the classes, then the amount for the class is to be paid before the class begins.

* For the 2022-2023 season, Mini and Junior teams will no longer have a formal audition.

DESCRIPTION OF SUMMER WORKSHOPS/CLASSES

Tiny Toes Camp

There will be one week of classes Monday through Friday from July 18-22, 2022. There will be a  weekly class beginning June 14 - August 4.

 

BALLET CLASSES:

Ballet training is essential for dancers to progress and advance to a higher level of dance.

ACRO DANCE

Acro Dance as it is commonly referred to by dancers and dance professions, is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements The class will be structured for the students to work on flexibility, limbering, balance, strength, and tumbling skills such as front and back walkovers, cartwheels and more.

 

 

DANCE APPRECIATION DAY CAMP (5 Days - Daily Monday - Friday 10:00 to 3:00 pm)

Students will learn the main dance styles of HipHop, Jazz, Ballet, Tap and more! We will also watch classic dance movies and have fun dance activities. The first week is recommended to beginners/intermediate students who have an interest in exploring multiple styles of dance. The second week is recommended to more experienced students who want to strengthen their skills in their favorite styles. The students will receive an exclusive MDS Appreciation Camp T-shirt. The students will need to bring a lunch and water bottle. Bailey will provide a snack during breaks and on the last day the students will be taken for a frozen yogurt treat to “Wild Berry”!

Performance for the parents will be held on Friday at 4 pm.

 

Lynn’s Int./Adv. Class (experienced dancers)

The Contemporary/Jazz class will be for experienced dancers only. Lynn will choose the students from her August 4th, 2022 summer class, that she feels are on the appropriate level of dance for her class in the fall. All experienced dancers in 7th grade and up are welcome to try her classes during the summer. Lynn’s current students must take the class when students are available/in town over the summer. Lynn feels that students work very hard all through the year and if they don’t take classes for 2 ½ months, this causes regression in technique.

 

* Private classes are available in all styles of dance. Contact Marti if you want a private class.

 

Private Group Class

A special dance class or camp in any dance style for just your student and his or her friends. We would need between 5-15 dancers and be subject to studio and teacher availability. Contact Marti for more information. This option is not refundable.

 

Please mail the registration form to 1140 Riverside Drive, Los Altos, CA 94024 or place the registration form in the outside mailbox in front of Studio A at MDS.

 

Drop-in students must pay before class begins.

 

Marti’s Dance Studio accepts Cash, checks, or Venmo (Account @Marti-Gibeau). If you use a credit card there is a 2% service charge.
