    Footlight Dance Centre is synonymous with discipline and excellence, and its summer offerings are no exception.
    The Footlight Dance Centre’s summer programs are an integral part of the training of local dancers.
    Be sure to check out what the dancers can achieve during the annual spring production “Don Quixote” on the weekend of May 17-19 at the Wood River High School Performing Arts Theater at the Community Campus in Hailey.
Here are summer classes:
l DANCEcamp sessions No. 1 and No.  2 are June 17-21 and July 8-12, respectively. The five-day camp is for students entering grades 2-4 in the fall. Activities of the first session include ballet, hip-hop, tap, creative, dance history, choreography, crafts and dance videos. Camps run from 9 a.m to 2:30 p.m. each day.
l  Footlight offers from June 24-28 the Cecchetti Ballet Camp No. 1, and from July 29-Aug. 2 the Cecchetti Ballet Camp No. 2. The workshop in the Cecchetti Ballet Method is for dancers 9-and-older with more than two years of ballet experience.
    Cecchetti is a rigorous system drawn up with careful regard for the laws of anatomy, and it is designed to endow the human body with all those qualities essential to the dancer—including balance, poise, strength and elasticity.
l Summer Ballet & Pilates classes for ages 11-to-adult will take place Mondays and Wednesdays from July 29-Aug. 21 for beginners and intermediate dancers.
l Footlight offers an August Dance Refresher Monday through Friday, Aug. 12-16. The one-week workshop get dancers ready for their fall classes. It’s intended for Middle School and High School, Intermediate and Advanced dancers.
    All classes are held at the Community Campus in Hailey. For further details call Director Hilarie Neely at 578-5462.
