Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the nation’s leading Latino dance organization since 1970,announces the 2013 Pre-School Summer Dance Camps to be held weekly from June 10 – July 12 for boys and girls ages 3-5. Through fun and engaging classes, children explore the sounds, movement, stories, and art of Cuba (June 10-14), Colombia (June 17-21), Mexico (June 24-28), and Peru (July 8-12). The camps run Monday-Friday and feature weekly in-studio presentations for parents.
