Triple Threat Dance-Step-Cheer Camp, Slidell Boys & Girls Club
Slidell Boys & Girls Club summer campers will be busy this summer with field trips and activities that includes the Triple Threat: Dance, Step and Cheer Camp, sponsored by the Chris Duhon Stand Tall Foundation.
About the Camp
The Triple Threat Dance-Step-Cheer Camp was created by the Chris Duhon Stand Tall Foundation in order to provide more recreational opportunities for children in need. Realizing that participating in the arts can be costly, the Stand Tall Foundation seeks to provide basic training in technique and choreography - to prepare campers for participation in school teams at the middle and high school level.
Coaches volunteer their time and come from different facets of the arts. Each year we partner with professional choreographers from all over the United States who volunteer their time and talent to our cause.
"When we recruit coaches, we aim to find the best in the arts. Past years coaches have been very talented and have inspired our youth" said Andrea Duhon, Triple Threat Coach and Camp Director.
The five-day camp is designed for boys & girls, ages 5-16 and focuses on fundamental technique and choreography of Dance, Step and Cheer. From beginning to end each day is crammed with a high-level of instruction in a fun and safe enviroment.
The camp runs daily from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. with a final showcase at 2:00 p.m. on Friday. Campers will get to experience three morning sessions and three afternoon sessions daily.
The Boys & Girls Club
The Boys & Girls Club of Slidell is one of five club sites that serves more than 2,000 youths through the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Louisiana. It provides a quality learning environment that encourages youths to become responsible and productive adults.
Although club members pay $5 each school year to participate in the many programs and leadership opportunities at the club, it is estimated it costs $40 per month for each youth who attends. The club relies on donations from the community and volunteers to assist with the operations of programs and activities at the Slidell club.
