A typical day at Welbourne Jazz Camp
10:00am: Dance Program Classes
2:00pm: Music Program Classes
5:00pm: Tap jam or other combined activities
5:45pm: Beginning musician jam session
8:00pm: Open jam and social dancing
If you participate in both programs, your day is pretty jam packed. If you sign up for only dance or only music, half of your day will be spent working on your own and the other half will be in classes working on your craft. We also like to suggest sitting in on classes even if you didn't sign up for both programs. Dancers and musicians can learn a lot from each other by simply listening.
In both programs, everyone is guaranteed at least ONE private lesson. This lesson is scheduled by the music and dance program directors. If you play multiple instruments, you'll need to decide which is most important to you.
NIGHT ACTIVITIES AND JAMS
Its important to keep in mind that we are not like other camps. We do not hire DJs or play canned music for dancing at night. The party is made by you, your instruments, and your excitement for dance. It's your party!
At the end of the week, we perform our songs and dance numbers for a handfull of incredibly sweet, non music playing/non dancing locals. Participation in the showcase is not required but it is encouraged. It's fun and everyone is really supportive!
