ADTC Dance Camp Team Events

At the start of each week, our staff will help you get to know other campers and build camaraderie by placing you into teams. Teams earn points by competing in friendly events like dance idol, team cheers and dance tech night (dance trivia, flexibility, strength, leaps, etc.) and working together to complete various tasks throughout the week (photo safaris, flash mobs, field events, etc.).

Dance Tech

Tuesday night is when we hold "Dance Tech Night." Dance Tech is your chance to compete for your team in dance events that showcase your talent. This competition is made up of five different dance camp team events:

Dance Jeopardy: Contestants from each team answer "dance trivia questions (often by performing a move). Categories can include different dance styles, dance history, pop culture, etc.

Pirouettes: One or two campers from each team compete in the pirouette contest. Campers are judged on technique for each assigned pirouette. Assigned pirouettes can include: single pirouette, double pirouette, triple pirouette, pique turns, chaine turns, fouette, fouette en tournant, etc.

Strength: One camper from each team competes in the strength contest. A second camper from each team assumes a support role. Competing campers must sit on the floor and lift their bodies completely off the ground. The second camper sits behind their teammate with their hand raised until their teammate falls. The last camper up wins.

Flexibility: One camper from each team competes in the flexibility contest. Campers are judged on technique for each assigned position as well as execution of their optional pose. Campers should be able to perform the following poses: right leg split, left leg split, center split, pancake through to seal stretch, downward dog, standing pike stretch, right/left leg up, standing wise scale, right/left batman, bridge, optional pose.

Here are a few videos to help you better understand what Dance Tech is all about...

Dance Idol

Thursday night is when we hold our "Dance Idol" competition. Dance Idol is THE highlight of the week (other than the Friday Night Show) for ADTC campers and staff.

You'll get to choreograph & perform your own solo, duet or group dance (if someone else choreographed your dance, you must give them credit!), and 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners are invited to perform their piece in our show.
