Dance Camp | Switzerland | Leysin

A programme designed to enable campers to create, rehearse and finally perform at the end-of-camp show in front of a ‘live’ audience. Our popular, experienced and highly qualified Dance Director and her team deliver an outstanding dance experience, exploring many different types and styles of the dance repertoire.

Programme suitable for ages 10-17

Programme Overview

The programme runs for 3 hours every weekday morning. From the very start the specialist dance teachers and the young dancers collaborate together to jointly develop their routines, choose the music, frame the choreography and then rehearse enthusiastically in the build up to the last-night show. They also help design and make their own stage costumes and create the stage-sets.

Different types of dances are incorporated into the performances, which take into account the skills and experience of the dancers as well as the different cultures of this group - who come from all over the world. Whether you are a trained dancer or just like to ‘move to the music’, this dance programme will have something special for you. Our professional and talented dance team works individually with each camper to give them complete confidence, improved skills and an expanded dance repertoire.

Each end-of session show is a complete ‘one-off’ with the campers’ individual ideas, music, moves and dances creating a new and impressive performance where the dancers will be spurred on by excited applause from the audience – the entire camp!

After camp, all dance participants receive a link on the Village Camps Google Drive giving access to the end-of-camp show.

Accommodation, Excursions & Activities

Campers stay at the Village Camps' Swiss Alpine Centre. The centre has spacious, mainly en-suite bedrooms for 3-4 campers, lounges and play areas as well as impressive dining facilities. The campus is well situated just above the main village and close to its excellent sport and leisure facilities. There are exciting excursions to Geneva, the lakeside town of Lausanne, a chocolate factory and the Water-Park in nearby Aigle. In the afternoons and evenings, campers enjoy an exciting range of activities. Highlights are archery, tennis, hikes, mountain-climbing and beach volleyball in the afternoons and fun team competitions, International Cuisine Night, Talent Show and the Final Night Farewell Disco in the evenings.

*Not available during 1st session, and not available at all for campers booking the Adventure Camp or LTC

Choose your favourite specialty programme whilst combining it with professional tennis instruction from VC’s top coach, Christine Suard! This additional option allows those that are passionate for tennis to combine their language, art, or multi-sports morning programme with qualified afternoon tennis instruction which will allow campers to improve significantly at both disciplines, morning and afternoon!

We are very fortunate to be partnered with such a qualified head-coach who has developed such a fantastic and innovative tennis programme which has three different categories from beginners to highly trained club players. We therefore wanted to give the opportunity to all campers regardless of programme (Adventure excluded) to opt for an additional 3 hours of tennis instruction in the afternoons!

In the evenings, campers join their peers who have been on afternoon activities for engaging evening programmes which will, at times incorporate the whole camp and other times be age group dependent.

Certainly, a programme not to be missed for those who are interested in professional swiss tennis instruction as well as other specialty programmes!
