Instruction runs 8:45 a.m. - 3 p.m. August 17-19 at Scappoose Middle School


    - Summer Beats Dance Camp, where dancers in kindergarten through eighth grade show off their moves, is back for three days, August 17-19, at Scappoose Middle School.Young dancers from kindergarten through eighth grade have a new chance to show off their moves.

The Summer Beats Dance Camp costs $80, runs 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. August 17-19 at Scappoose Middle School and builds to a showcase before friends and family at 5 p.m. on the final day.

"Summer Beats is a terrific youth camp," Scappoose Vision Dance coach Pam Didier said. "They get to meet new friends, learn different styles of dance and show off what they learned to friends and family at our free showcase [at 5 p.m.] on the last day. Kids also do daily crafts, while the older kids are challenged with learning other types of dance."

Dancers receive a camp shirt, snacks and careful instruction, and need only to bring lunch, a water bottle, comfortable clothes and shoes and a great attitude.
