Welcome to the Nebraska Summer Dance Camp 

In the best interest of our dancers , Omaha Academy of Ballet has decided to cancel Nebraska Summer Dance Camp for 2021.
We apologize for any dissapointment this may cause. We look forward to hopefully having camp resume in 2022. 

2022 - To Be Determined                                                 
Nebraska State 4-H Camp
Halsey, Nebraska 
 One full week of intensive dance classes, fun and exciting camp activities and a lifetime of memories!
Dance classes include Ballet (including pointe work) plus jazz, modern, lyrical and choreography
featuring top midwest teachers and special guest teachers!
Now in our 32nd year of exciting, intensive, affordable summer dance!

This fast-paced program will provide a rewarding challenge for dancers at moderate to advanced levels. Enrollment is limited to 70 dancers and students will be grouped by ability to assure individual attention. Minimum requirements: age 10 and two years of ballet. Students will take three to four classes daily. In order to achieve balanced enrollment, we limit the number of students in each age bracket – so to avoid disappointment, please register early. When an age bracket is filled, a waiting list system will apply. Waiting-list applicants will be informed.


All students will have one classical ballet class each day,
including pointe work for those at that level, plus 2-3 other classes,
providing a balanced program for each level. Other dance classes will include
modern dance, jazz/lyrical, and choreography.
