Summer of Dance at LR Jackson

Camp for girls 5 to 18 begins Monday

ralphhardin@gmail.com The L.R. Jackson Girls Club, Inc. and the Dazzling Diamonds Dance Team will be sponsoring an 8-week dance camp, beginning Monday June 20, and running through Aug. 12.

The Dazzling Diamonds Dance Camp is intense and is designed to help the girls develop into well rounded dancers and athletes. The essential skills taught in this camp will help the girls during competition season as well as open doors to other competition areas. Registration is open to girls ages 5 to 18. Participation in the camp will prepare the girls for Fall and Spring competition teams.

Activities include: etiquette training, mentoring, gymnastics, strength and conditioning workouts, basic and advanced dance techniques, leadership development, community service, a fundraising project and two field trips. Meals and snack will be provided. Registration fees are low and affordable.

“This is something new for the community and I know a lot of girls keep asking about it,” said director Chancey Rainey. “I think it’s good for the club to do something different than the other clubs as well as offering something that the kids really want.”

Registration is taking place at the L.R. Jackson Girls Club, Inc. 405 S. 25th Street. For more information call (901) 634-9966 or
