HIP-HOP (dance therapy): Our hip-hop instructors are professional dancers/ choreographers who are highly motivational and have a gift for developing a great rapport with the kids. They create a safe, non-judgmental space for all the kids to express themselves through dance. All campers participate in the workshops regardless of their dance skills. Everyone learns the routine and at the end of each retreat they get to perform their dance. It is inspiring to watch both kids and parents and teachers let their guard down as they are encouraged by the instructor, their counselors, and their peers. They come away from the experience feeling a little more comfortable in their bodies, a little more self confident, and a little spent from the work-out.
