Summer Camps at Twirl

Summer at Twirl Means Sold Out Camps and Lots of Fun!

Summer is a slow time for most dance studios, but not at Twirl, located in Newtown Square. Summertime is one of the busiest seasons for Twirl, who already sold out some of their 2020 summer performance camps hours after registration opened. A 2019 Best of Main Line winner for Summer Day Camp, Twirl offers high-energy, crazy fun camps with super popular themes like Frozen II, Star Wars, Zombies (the Disney Channel movies, including Zombies 2 which will debut on Feb. 14), Trolls World Tour (the new Trolls movie that premiers in April), and the Lego movie series. Twirl owner and former Disney dancer Sam Sinns anticipated the popularity of Twirl summer camps this season and has already added overflow camps to compensate for some of the sold-out camps. So there’s still room!!!
“What makes Twirl summer camps so popular?” muses Sam. “I guess it’s because we commit to every theme 110%. We make sure that every day is action-packed. And our staff is off the rails in their energy and enthusiasm.” When asked to describe what goes on in a typical Twirl half-day camp, he says every day is like a giant three-hour party. There’s dancing, trivia games, obstacle courses, crafts, snack, and it’s go go go from one activity to the other with no downtime. And every camp ends with a performance for family and friends, which is definitely one of the highlights.

Along with themed camps, Twirl offers a summer dance intensive where students feed their passion for dance with daily classes in Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Acrobatics, and Hip Hop. And there’s also a full-day Seussical Jr. musical theatre performance camp in partnership with The Handwork Studio. In Seussical camp, performers will spend the days rehearsing Seussical Jr. and will also sew their own costumes, which they get to keep. The folks from The Handwork Studio will set up an entire costume making wonderland at Twirl including sewing machines, and walk the performers through the process of making their own costumes. Twirl camp “quadruple threats” will sing, dance, act, and sew every day throughout the week, which ends with two performances of Seussical Jr.
There’s a lot going on at Twirl with themed camps, summer dance intensive, and musical theatre costume making camp. “Summer at Twirl is one of my favorite times of the year,” remarks Sam. “To see the smiles on the kids’ faces and how excited they are to walk through the door every day. There’s nothing like it!”
