At the Salsa With Silvia dance studio, we believe that camps should be filled with laughter, fun games and adventures but we also love to challenge our campers by providing a continuation of their school curriculum and working on reading, writing, science and more. Our camps are bilingual. They are super structured and filled with fun but challenging activities for the kids.

We staff according to the number of kids registered for camp. We have 3 to 4 adults for a group of 20 to 30 kids. We split the group based on age into two classrooms. All of our educators are certified and are CPR trained. Your child’s safety is our top priority.

We stand by quality of education and structure, better teacher to student ratio than most camps, safety and variety of educational and creative activities for the kids!

  • Our educators are currently teaching at public schools and have years of experience in early childhood education.
  • Our dance instructors and educators are CPR trained and are experienced in working with young children.
  • Our adult to child ratio is much higher than any other camp.
  • Small size classes: our cap per room does not exceed 15 kids.
  • The number of activities we offer and creativity that our camp inspires in kids, surpasses any other camp in the area.
  • We help kids continue with their reading, writing curriculum during their breaks.
  • Our camp is bilingual.
  • We provide morning breakfast and snacks throughout the day.
  • Our facility is clean and up to code. Our cleaning standards are very high and we follow all protocols and CDC guidelines.

If we have more than 20 kids, we split the kids by age and each age group has their own room. If we have 20 and under, we typically only separate the group for rest time when younger kids rest and older kids are involved in reading, drawing and other quiet activities. We find that younger kids learn a ton from their older piers and the older kids enjoy helping the younger campers.

YES!!! We love to have boys in camps. They can dance, create and play just as well as girls!

The nearest park, located only a block away from our facility, is located on Irving St. and Georgia Ave. NW. It has a small playground but a large open outdoor space and shaded area, perfect for the hot summer weather. The kids will enjoy not only free play time but also structured outdoor activities such as obstacle courses, jumping on beat, free dance, counting the beat and more. Another location, walking distance, that we will use is a park located on 11th and Monroe.

Each adult is assigned to a certain group of kids. The assigned teacher watches these kids but also always keeps an eye on the group. Each child will wear our bright and very colorful camp t-shirt. The kids will be accounted for on the way out of our facility and before we head back.

Each day the kids have 2 structured dance sessions (40 min each) and are exposed to one or two different styles of dance (Ballet, Tap, Modern, Latin, Hip Hop and more).

Our camps are bilingual and at least 50% of the content is taught in Spanish. Our goal is to expose the kids to Spanish as much as possible. Even if the child has never learned Spanish, he/she will start recognizing words that we use to name different objects, activities, actions, etc. We use a game, music and singing approach to learning so the kids can memorize words much quicker.

Our Dance & Learning camps are designed to be fun but also very educational. The kids learn the different dance styles through games. For example, they do games where they learn to recognize the rhythm of the different dance styles.  We learn not only dance but we explore different styles of music and rhythm. Because it is hard for young kids to focus on dance for more than 80 minutes a day (2 sessions, 40 minutes each), we are adding many other activities such as singing & musicality, arts & crafts, outdoor time, counting, spelling, reading, writing, science, story telling and more. The overall goal of the program is to continue challenging the students brains while keeping them active and having fun.

Sadly, yes. Our camp has defined rules & policies, and a child can be dismissed after 3 warnings.

The only requirement for clothing is for our dance activities. Each child should have a pair of ballet slippers that they can leave in their cubby for the duration of their enrollment.  We provide the camp t-shirts on site and we wash them weekly. Be sure to dress kids season appropriate. We prefer NO flip flops during summer camp, they are not safe.

Camp Rules & Policy

One day and one week camp policy: All payments are final and non-refundable. You can switch one camp for another based on availability.

If service cancellation is performed by the Salsa With Silvia studio, a full refund will be issued unless such cancellation is caused by a force majeaure such as a war, strike, riot, crime, epidemic or an event described by the legal term act of God, preventing the Studio from fulfilling its obligations under the contract. In the event of a possible COVID infection, the camp will be shut down with an option to transfer credit to another day.

A child can be dismissed from camp under the following circumstances:

– Continuous disruptive and violent behavior: pushing, hitting, spitting, offending other campers, being disrespectful to teachers, staff and other campers, etc.

– Continuously disobeying instructors, separating from the group, pulling and playing with curtains, hanging off ballet barres, not following instructions, etc.

– Demonstrating continuous lack of interest for activities offered in the camp, disturbing and distracting other campers. We want your child to have fun and if they are simply not interested in the various activities that we offer, then we’ll advise that maybe he/she is interested in other types of camps (sports, etc.).

We will start by talking to the child and of course talking to the parents/guardians. We will write and give you incident reports. We will give you a first warning after the 3rd incident report. If behavior continues we will proceed with dismissing the child from camp.

If you receive a dismissal warming and your child is dismissed, we will pro-rate and refund the rest of the camp enrollment fees.
