Learn more about our Summertime Programs


The Academy provides full weeks of summer programs offering:

  • Tiny Tots Dance Camp
  • Junior Ballet Workshops
  • Ballet Intensives
  • Junior Musical Theatre Camp
  • Senior Musical Theatre Camp

Ballet Intensives offer students an opportunity to expand on their ballet training with exposure to professional performance skills such as balletic mime, stage make-up and choreography. Students have a wonderful opportunity to work directly with choreographers, experiencing first-hand the creative process that is involved in the development of dance.

Dance camps and workshops provide a fun and creative environment for younger students to explore movement, musicality and dance-related arts and crafts.

Musical Theatre Camps provide students with an exceptional experience in singing, acting and dancing.  The exciting high-energy Musical Theatre Camps offer singing, acting and dancing with vocal training, music reading, drama technique, choreography and character development.

Each of our programs brings like-minded children together to enhance their training in a fun, challenging and nurturing environment, developing new skills along with new friendships!

All Summertime students perform for family and friends at the end of each week.

School Photo Days 2019

All students have the option of having their photograph taken in costume by Revival Arts Studio at FVAD’s School Photo Days 2019 on  June 15-16, the weekend before our school shows.

This is a wonderful opportunity to obtain extremely high quality images by an award-winning photographer.  The schedule and order forms are below.

Photo Day – Schedule 2019 (last updated May 22, 2019)

  • Students performing in the school shows are photographed in a group photo for each dance, and may also purchase an individual pose as well as the group photo.

FVAD Photo Day – Order Form 2019

  • Use one form per dance photo
    • You will need one form per costume (ie. per dance photo).
    • Provide your total payment in CASH OR CHEQUE for all forms combined.
    • Forms are to be handed to the photographer with payment on Photo Day.
  • Order forms are also available at the FVAD office.

PLEASE ATTEND YOUR GROUP PHOTO EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT PURCHASING:  We encourage all students to attend their dance group photo as there is no charge to be in this photo.  We use these photos for promotional purposes, and as an archive of our current and former students.

  • Students must place an order for a photo item in order to have an individual pose taken.
  • Students wishing to obtain a copy of the group photo may then purchase one.
  • Students not performing in the school shows may still have their photograph taken, and may borrow a costume if desired.  (Please inform the office ahead of time so as to be scheduled in the Photo Day schedule in this case)

View the Hair, Makeup and Footwear needs for each costume. (coming soon!)

  • Please arrive at FVAD at the Arrive Time, and collect your child at the Pick-Up Time.
