The Creation of Junior / Youth Program

For a number of years as Independence Day Ball Dance Camp has offered an opportunity for dancers of many levels and ages to attend and receive quality instruction from some of the best coaches available. However, the increase of the interest in youth competitors attending IDBDC has proved the need for a separate program to be created at our camp. Additionally, while partnering with JADA and WSCDC, IDBDC has decided to honor the rules and request of both organizations that: “No Seniors or Adult competitors share the floor with youth dancers at the same time”.

In 2017 Independence Day Ball Dance Camp has created a separate
Junior / Youth Program

This gives an ability for Junior / Youth competitors to share the same floor with their peers and focus on their dancing. Additionally having a separate ballroom for young competitors gives a much better opportunity for the top level coaches to focus specifically on the needs of Youth competitors.


This approach has proven to be extremely popular and gave a much better results for the dancers.

In fact it was so populate that many adult attendies expressed to add the lectures and program developed for the youth competitors to the main course of Independence Day Ball Dance Camp. Youth competitors are able to participate in all social activities that are offered to adult competitors including the Social and July 4th firework trip.
