Free Youth Summer Dance Program
June 13 - August 27 2022
What is Battle City?
Battle City is an Alberta wide FREE breaking & open styles training program that leads to a competition to showcase all the hard work.
Battle City originally started in Calgary in 2012 to help dancers connect with their community by eliminating barriers such as travel and cost. We assigned coaches/mentors in each area of the city (NW, NE, SW, SE and Deep South), found studio or community spaces and provided a month long opportunity to connect and train.
This year we have expanded and invited 4 other Cities (Red Deer, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, and Vancouver). Teams will start training mid July and go until the final battle which is on August 27th in Calgary.
This free program is open to youth 17 years old and younger.
All youth should have access to a location they can learn to dance that is not a long distance away or too expensive.
Sense of Belonging
All youth should have a sense of belonging and feel included, develop friendships and life long bonds with their team and the community.
All youth should develop various skills in the discipline of dance they choose. These skills will be the building blocks to their development as they strive to be a recreational or competitive dancer.
All youth will develop the confident to cypher, battle, and perform in high pressured situations.
We will see growth in youth participation in studios and the community.
