Summer is the time (especially when there’s plenty of time) for little creatives to take their imagination beyond the living room. With a whole season of unique camps for tinkerers, campers, princesses, filmmakers, dancers and more, Sonoma Academy of Dance & Arts is ready to take your kiddos to the next stage… literally. Read on to go behind the scenes of SADA.


About Sonoma Academy of Dance Arts
Founded in 2005 by Sarah Duran LeVine, SADA began as a full dance program with a handful of performing arts camps. Since then, the summer camp program has gotten more and more innovative, fulfilling the interests of young archaeologists to budding entrepreneurs.

The Coolest Classes of the Summer
SADA’s summer schedule is seriously cool. This is where young ones can learn the science behind bubble art at Bubble School, identify animal bones with a true Sonoma historian, or go old school on tiny toes at a dance camp. Each camp has a hands-on approach that’ll spark the creative juices in every toddler. Enhance survival skills with archery or analytical skills with engineering experiments… the choices don’t stop there! Check out all eleven camps here. Little bundles of energy are going to want more than just a week with SADA.
