- $169 for a kids' dance day camp from July 22 to July 26 (a $339 value)
After separating campers into three age groups (6 and younger, 7–9, and 10 and older), professional instructors lead them a diverse schedule of 45-minute dance classes, including jazz, tap, ballet, hip-hop, and musical theatre. Campers can also branch out into acrobatics, yoga, and crafts classes. Camp begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m., and students should bring dance shoes and peanut-free snacks and lunch.
Capital City Dance
While growing up in their hometown of Ottawa, Michael Falucci and Gabriel Wolinsky always dreamed of becoming professional dancers. For years, they trained in dance studios throughout North America before moving Toronto to pursue performance careers. Their hard work and determination paid off, landing them roles in professional theatre productions such as Guys and Dolls and South Pacific along with film and television parts in Disney's Eloise and Degrassi Goes Hollywood. After their Dirty Rotten Scoundrels tour, where they racked up frequent flyer miles by leaping across stages in 60 North American cities, Michael and Gabe returned to Ottawa to open their own dance studio—Capital City Dance.
At the studio, the duo draws from their years of experience in dancing and coaching, captaining a crew of fellow professional dancers as they lead classes in a range of styles. Throughout the week, Capital City Dance resounds with the sounds of ballet music, tap shoes, and disconcertingly loud jazz hands as the staff leads classes and workshops for young and old. The studio hosts recreational classes as well as a competitive program, where students are regularly entered in regional and national dance competitions.
