I started American Dance Training Camps in 2003 because my experience attending an overnight gymnastics camp for 8 summers gave me the ability to love myself in a way I didn't know I was capable of during school years focused on grades, cliques, going to the mall and prom.
At camp, self-love is easy. Camp inspires intrinsic motivation - autonomy, competence, connection, and a "flow" state you can't achieve when you're doing something for someone else or for an external reward.
At camp you slow down, remember you're ALIVE, savor simple pleasures and do the things that give you joy. At camp, miracles are natural (and we define a "miracle" as a shift in perception from fear to love!). Girls need more miracles...more self-love. And the world needs more inspired women.
