Dance Camp

The Spartan Dance Camp will be unlike any other! Each camper will have the opportunity to see what dance team is all about and learn a little bit about the Spartans' squad. Throughout the camp, the group will learn a routine that is about a minute in length, which will be showcased on the final day of camp. Campers will also learn some of the basic skills SPA dancers use throughout their season. No experience is necessary; anyone who wants to dance and have fun is welcome! Campers should plan on wearing dance attire or leggings, shorts, or tights (something comfortable to move in). Dance shoes are encouraged for those who have them otherwise, tennis shoes are fine.

Coach: Jessica Maxa has been the head dance coach at SPA for four years. Before her time as a Spartan, she coached other teams in the metro area, including South St Paul, Hill-Murray, and Minneapolis Washburn.
