Cameron Dance Academy – Important Dates 2018 / 2019

Check website for this info and articles, scheduling changes, important dates or info, dress requirements and cancellations due to snow.

Office Hours

Please e-mail the office at We will do our best to respond within 2 business days. If a student is going to be absent for a lesson, especially during choreography, the office must be notified by email.

Parents Observation Days

Information regarding scheduling will be sent to each class separately.

Parent’s Observation Days are provided for parents to see the progression of the students and we encourage parents to video the class so the students have the music and work at home. It is also the time when student’s needs are pointed out, and general information is explained. Please do not bring other siblings, the attention of other parents, students and teachers is distracting, as it is unfair to expect younger siblings to sit quietly. These unfortunate distractions do affect the quality of the class. We cordially invite other relatives, and friends to our Annual Performance at the beginning of June.

Picture Days May 4-5:

Photo Sessions with Ideal Engineering Photography
(8:00 am to 8:00 pm, takes place in studio) Schedule TBA

Cameron Dance Academy’s Annual Production at the Surrey Arts Theatre

All Students perform in both shows. (Tickets available April through The Arts Centre’s box office 604-501-5566 or online

Students arrival times are 1 hour before curtain or 10:00am for GVE classes for warm-up. Students must be in attendance for all rehearsal classes and performances. Please do not book holidays during the choreography sessions from April to showtime, consideration and consistency of students is needed to develop the choreography in this brief number of classes. In this respect, any missed sessions may require the student to be excluded from that portion of choreography, so pieces are to our highest standards. We will video both shows and order forms made available at show should be returned by Saturday June 15th.
