DANCE CAMPS ARE FUN! Camps create excitement, friendships, and did I say… whole lotta fun. The best news is that DANCE CAMPS can become a source of:




The imagination of dance camps are exciting for the teachers, dancers, and the friends they bring. So let’s chat about how to create your stellar dance camp. Starting with a blank canvas can be both exciting and overwhelming, but where to start?

Let me share my BA STARR DANCE CAMPS. It’s a good start to help strategize your camps and all that you could offer. Here is a snipit of what is in each one of my camps:















This list alone can be a bit overwhelming for anyone, especially if there is no plan. Camps are created for your campers to have fun, make friendships, and dance. Again, how to get started with your dance camp and all that goes into making it successful.

Let’s begin with….


Let’s begin to explore ideas. Here are a few ways to start the creative dumping. Popular movies, cartoons, or music. For example: Popular movies have made their mark in the dance camp history. Who doesn’t love a good ole FROZEN based theme, JOJO the superstar, and THE GREATEST SHOWMAN. Do you see where I am going with this?

Don’t miss your opportunity to capture what might be happening in the dancers world and bring it into the imaginary world of dance camp. Here are a few ideas to get you started!


Do you see the direction I’m going in creating your stellar dance camp? The possibilities are endless.

The THEME is most likely what will create the excitement to register, so make sure you know your crowd. The rest of the fun happens when the campers arrive. MUSIC Once your THEME has been chosen, the creativity begins. For me, I love to collect and categorize all my thoughts and resources into my PINTEREST and TRELLO BOARDS. . Don’t get started with your search and not keep your ideas and thoughts organized; you’ll wish you did…promise.




BUT… Before you set your heart’s desire on your chosen theme, search the music catalog for content. Sometimes, music can be a reason to get stoked about your theme or ditch it. I personally have wanted a theme but couldn’t grab enough tunes to make it work. So…music is your new bestie.

If by chance you are destined to have a particular THEME and music selection is sparse, there are other ways to meet the challenge. Your THEME can come to life by pouring your THEME idea into your

● Decorations

● Activities

● Games

● Themed music for bigger moments

● Choreography (it can be accomplished) send me a shoutout if you need some encouragement 🙂



When creating music for my camps, everything is planned out song by song. In other words, I rarely turn off the tunes. For example: My ages 3-5 day day camps are 1.5 hours, which is about the length of this BA STARR CAMP TROLLS playlist and ages 6-10 are 2hrs in length.

By creating a solid foundation for the camp with music, I know it will run smooth as butter. The music sets the cadence and pace for the entire camp. It also keeps me right on schedule for the fast pace activities and dancing.

Here is a biggie to keep in mind. Your camp becomes a big hit when campers leave having the best of times. So if I can offer one piece of dance camp music wisdom… ADD MUSIC THAT DANCERS LOVE TO DANCE TO regardless of theme. You know those fun party, toe tappin, jumpin kinda songs, you play them in your dance classes to spice it up from time to time; those songs!

Add these crazy fun songs (even if not with your theme) At the beginning to get them moving In the middle to keep the vibe going At definitely at the end to keep enjoying (like the finale) These songs will always be the crowd pleaser and leaving your campers remembering all the fun they had with you and their friends. I pinky swear! They might even want to register for all your camps.

THE DANCE CAMP SUCCESS SERIES – HOW TO CREATE YOUR DANCE CAMP is a way to get you started when it feels so overwhelming in your quest for a stellar dance camp.




THE DANCE CAMP SERIES: HOW TO CREATE YOUR DANCE CAMP – PART 1 is the first of 3 part series that will help your incredible camp come to life.








Camp Confetti 101: Make Summer Dance Fun (and EASY!)

by Confetti Crew on Jan 20 '20

Despite the winter month currently displayed on our calendar, it’s practically summer at Confetti on the Dance Floor! And, probably for many other studio owners, too, as you are getting ready to plan or announce your summer dance camp schedules to your customers. Hint: If you aren’t already working on summer planning, you should put it on your calendar super soon! Families are planning their children’s summer schedule earlier and earlier every year it seems, and now is the best chance to score a prime spot on their busy summer calendars!

As you get ready for summer, we want to make sure you know all about our Camp Confetti Summer Dance FunPacks! Because these downloads are game changers and life savers when it comes to summer planning! This could be the most important blog post you read all year!

We first introduced Camp Confetti in 2017 with 8 themes, but it’s now grown to 16 different themes! And coming VERY SOON (hint: this week!!), we will be launching the presale phase for SIX additional NEW THEMES!! With options in almost every style for a variety of ages, you are certain to find one or more that will fit perfectly into your studio! Stay tuned for the fun themes we’ll be adding! We’ll announce them on Wednesday! (If you want to know the themes before Wednesday, join our private Facebook group! We’ll be leaking them there first…today!! Just make sure you answer the 3 questions when you ask to join the group, and you’ll be added in right away!)

So, what is a Camp Confetti Summer Dance FunPack?
The first thing you need to know: It is a DOWNLOAD! Think of Camp Confetti as a summer dance camp in a box –- your inbox! Each FunPack is a digital download to a Dropbox folder (no worries, you don’t need a special account) that will provide your camp files with all the details, background, ideas, choreography videos and more for your theme!

How long are the camps?
This is the most popular question we get regarding Camp Confetti! We designed the content in each theme to maximize the fun over a five-day camp (for 2-3 hours each day), but they can easily be adapted to fit a 3-day camp format, too (or any other format you choose to follow). It’s up to you what you decide to cut out…maybe one less craft or condense an activity slightly to fit into your shorter camp schedule! Our camps make it super easy to be flexible!
