Rock Camp and Dance Intensive bring the most talented musicians and dancers from NYC and New Jersey to work with young musicians and dancers who are either new to music/dance or wish to master their craft while having a summer of fun and friendship.
Our world class faculty bring their passion, enthusiasm, and expertise to students 7-19 years old, beginners-advanced, as well students with no prior musical experience. Our aim is to inspire students to greatness in our music and dance programs, all the while having fun and gaining new experiences. We have three locations, Bloomingdale School of Music, Upper West Side in NYC (Music), Lebanon, NJ (Music), and Bridgehampton, NY (Music and Dance).
What makes RC and DI different? 1. All of the faculty are active performers and teachers. 2. Every student receives an incredible amount of attention throughout the week to ensure he or she is thriving, whether at beginner, intermediate, or advanced level. 3. Students gain an inner confidence that comes with public performance, playing in ensembles, learning choreography, and learning music/dance. 4. We think it's important to have an atmosphere that includes fun and friendship along side of music and dance.
I don't know where to begin...I wish I could put 10 stars! Steve, Taylor, Tyler, Mike, Sonia, and Nikki were all incredible instructors...and more importantly - warm-hearted, nice individuals! My son enrolled in 2 weeks of Rock Camp and it was not enough! He would have gone all summer if it was an option. This was the best camp experience of his life! And quite possibly one of the best times in his life all-around! - Liz G (Parent/Yelp Review)
In Rock Camp, students study a large range of musical styles, learn how to improvise, play in ensembles, learn songwriting, read/write music, record with a laptop and microphones, learn music technology, and have lessons in the morning and afternoon. Students may study up to two instruments (including voice), and our students range in ages from 7-19. No prior experience is required. Students perform a concert at the end of every week for parents, friends and the public. By the end of camp, all students gain a whole new level of confidence in their musical abilities, in addition to having a week of fun and new friendships.
For our older and more experienced musicians, AP Rock Camp is offered, which prepares students for professional performances/recitals, and offers in depth classes in recording, reading, harmony and improvisation, song writing, and many other electives.
The faculty at RC are active performers, performing throughout the country and internationally, and are college/conservatory professors. We approach teaching from a variety of angles, encompassing the interests of the students into our style, to ensure every student reaches an entirely new level of understanding and ability on his or her instrument in a very social and fun environment!

Dance Intensive was created to help young dancers achieve greatness in dance while making new friends and having fun. Students in Dance Intensive study three areas of dance: ballet, hip hop, and modern.
In Dance Intensive, students work with professional choreographers to learn new skills, master the fundamentals, and rehearse a performance for the public. At the end of the week, there is a dance recital illustrating all that was learned during the week. Students will work with a variety of teachers and visiting guest artists to reach a new level of technique and artistry in dance. Students range in ages from 7-19.
For our more experienced dancers, AP Dance Intensive is offered, which dedicates time for the teachers and students to work on achieving particular technical and artistic goals.
Clarissa Fatturosa, world renowned dancer/choreographer in NYC, is the artistic director of Dance Intensive. She is also the artistic director of the Workshop Series in Brooklyn, an innovative dance program bringing leading dancers and choreographers to collaborate with aspiring dancers.
