"Growing up I looked forward to attending the Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company Summer Dance Camp every year. I enjoyed the individual attention and training from the professional guest teachers. By the end of the week each teacher knew our name and made us feel they were really there to help us improve and grow as a dancer. There were a variety of classes offered, all geared towards making me a stronger and more versatile dancer. I would recommend this summer camp to any dancer who wants to get great training in numerous styles of dance, from professional faculty members, in a classroom setting where they will receive individual attention to improve over the course of the camp." --Ashley Durst Ashley is an LMBC alumna who danced Clara, Snow Queen and Spain in the LMBC Nutcracker.

Comments from our 2013 dance camp survey:
"Out of five (dance) camps (three in L.A.) this summer, this was the best technically. I was very impressed."
"It's a camp that is well-staffed given our location. A great opportunity for local dancers."
"My daughter is eight and loves dance, but isn't competitive and she only dances once a week. I wanted her to take the camp to see if she could handle-and would enjoy- more."
"My daughter always loved it! She thought the instructors were excellent and she learned a lot."
"Great instruction and challenge by the awesome staff and dancers that are there, but still local, affordable, and only takes one week of an increasingly short summer."
"Love the quality faculty, small class numbers, proximity to home, reasonable cost, supporting the local arts and great work of the Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company."
"Access to professional instruction locally...so my dancer gets to experience different instructors and challenges."
