Should I sign up for four or six days?
That is entirely up to you! If you’re one of our competitive students, we highly recommend our 6 day camp to get the most out of your practice time. 
What if I want to participate in camp, but I don’t want to perform at the fair? 
If you don’t want to perform because you are nervous, don’t worry! We will be right with you and we won’t ask you to perform anything you can’t do! 
If you still don’t want to perform, no problem. We understand. You can still participate in camp, learn the material, and either join us to watch and be our biggest cheerleader, or your parents can pick you up on Thursday before we leave for the fair. 
Please let me know if you have any questions!!
