About our

Summer Camp

Located conveniently off the Beltway, Marcellus Dance Studio Summer Performing Arts Camp is easily accessible to the entire DMV.  Our studio experience began as a Summer Camp and for 20 years we have been serving children of all backgrounds in a family-friendly, safe and fun environment.  Camp is open to boys and girls, ages 4 to 15. We offer a full spectrum of experiential education in the arts including Music, Visual Arts (drawing, painting and art history), Theatrical Arts (staging, costuming, backdrops and props), Drama (script-reading, improvisation, acting), Etiquette and of course, Dance (Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Liturgical, African, Hip Hop).  Whether registering for one week or the whole summer, amazing adventures await with new friends, exciting weekly field trips, annual BBQ, and the culminating summer camp performance.

Our camp is designed to fit your schedule and is adaptable to students enrolled in multiple camps.  Camp hours are from 9am-4pm with Before Care available from 7-9am and After Care available from 4-6pm.  Children bring their own personal water bottles, lunches and snacks.

"Our daughter is not only a student of Marcellus Dance Studio, but she also has attended MDS Summer Camp for several years. It is a great program that places emphasis on the fundamentals of dance and the children are also given the opportunity to enjoy outdoor summer activities. If you're looking for a summer program with great staff, fun activities and a family-like feel, MDS Summer Camp is the way to go."
