Young girls have become dancing princesses during dance camp this week.
The camp is held at Griffin School of Dance in partnership with the Newberry Ballet Guild and encompasses mostly 5 and 6 year old girls for four days.
The camp is lead by Lane Joiner, the girls learn creative movements as well as ballet and tap moves.
They don their dance apparel which includes leotards and mostly ballet inspired clothes while some of the girls wear their hair tied back in ballerina-esque buns.
In addition to all the moves the group of seven girls learn, they will perform a special performance at the Prosperity Town Center on Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
Joiner will read a story, “Garden Magic - Flower Fantasy,” as the young dancers do some creative movement after they display a miniature class as an example to family and friends.
The girls will also show off tutus they made during camp with the help of ballet guild members as well as hair and makeup that they learned in camp.
In addition to Joiner leading the camp, she had help from some Newberry Ballet Guild dancers who helped lend some of their own dance expertise. The guild dancers will also dance in the background with the young dancers at the performance.
Most of the campers are beginners, says Joiner although there are some who have danced before she points out.
This is the fourth year for the camp that Joiner has been in charge of. She works at Griffin School of Dance.
