MamLuft&Co. Dance’s Summer Dance Camp for Kids in Cincinnati is about the creative, empowering, expressive, and active practice of dance!
The camp is unique because, according to our research, it is the only camp in Cincinnati that offers Modern Dance and provides options for activities for the entire work day. It is not a 2 or 3-hour camp: activities run from 9am-3pm, with drop-off starting at 8:45am, and aftercare add-ons available up til 5:30pm!
We also DE-emphasize pink and princesses so that boys feel welcome and absolutely comfortable.
Children must have already had at least one year of school that meets at least 6 hours a day.
Historically, Modern Dance developed in the early 1900s and became a recognizable form by the 1950s, when it got its name from the Modern Era. It is different from Ballet because of its use of inversions, “free-er” use of the body (less restrictions), and a strong relationship with the ground. It has strong influences from many different forms of ethnic dance, as well.
Modern Dance is excellent for children because it encourages them to think outside the box, to be creative, to be expressive, to be physically aware, and to move freely.
Kids Bop is what we call a fun, energetic, and basic hip hop for kids!
Creative Movement is all about they joy of movement: in its creativity, freedom, and power to express! A pre-cursor to Modern Dance, Creative Movement is more about innovation and individuality, and less about traditionalism and rules. Think: barefoot, moving through space with different kinds of energy and flow, and nurturing your child’s individual creativity!
$50 PER CHILD of your tuition payment is a non-refundable deposit and cannot be returned for any reason, whether it be illness, injury, change of plans, or other reasons.
The remaining funds must be requested in writing to [email protected] no later than 5:00pm on May 31st.

FIRST OFF, please do not send your child to our camp in clothes that you would be upset about staining. We do LOTS of arts and crafts including permanent markers, inks, paints, glue, paper mache, etc. Even though we provide aprons, they WILL get dirty!
We recommend children wear comfortable clothes, such as knits. Short shorts or open-leg shorts are not recommended. No jeans, skirts, or dresses, please. Children with long hair should be able to tie their hair back.
Children should wear sneakers they can be active in. If they wear sandals, they will have to take them off for their own safety; however, the floor is slippery, so we highly recommend sneakers!
