Shelf Elf Dancing Day Camp
We were thrilled to offer the community an exciting day "camp" adventure with Twinkle (our resident Elf), while parents had a chance to do some last minute Holiday shopping and tree trimming. With over 20 people, the camp was a huge success! Campers took part in technique class, movement games, an Elf scavenger hunt, holiday crafts, letters to Santa, a VIP movie on the big screen, and even a special visit from the big man himself! It truly was a magical day to remember...
