Youth Dance Classes and Camps

SUMMER PROGRAM REGISTRATION UPDATE:

With Social Distancing and group gathering limitations being extended until April 30th, 2020, the City of Papillion Recreation Department has determined that it is in everyone best interest if we delay opening Summer Program Registration until May 1, 2020. This will include Papio Bay Swim Lesson Registration and Season Pass Pre-Sales.

Summer Session consists of 8 weeks (June 2-July 31) of instruction with the entire week of July 4th off. Payments are collected monthly and dancers may sign up for a single month. Registration and payment must be made one week prior to the start of a new month. This is a great opportunity for students to try dancing without the pressure of a performance. Performance opportunities will resume in the Fall Session. 

We will have a parent observation week the 3rd week of the Summer Session. Typically, we will ask parents to wait for their dancer from a distance as to not distract students and to create a safe and comfortable learning environment for everyone. Special arrangements may be made during the first few minutes or first few classes for any hesitant or nervous dancers.
