Rocky Mountain Dance Project is a week long summer dance camp held in beautiful Jasper, Alberta. This will be our 19th year returning to Jasper for the camp yet we are always excited to meet new people and try out new activities and classes.
RMDP includes 5 days of dancing, meals and accommodation. Dancers arrive on the Sunday for registration and camp orientation with dinner provided and fun evening activities to break the ice and get campers settled into their dorm rooms. Dance classes start Monday morning with some of the industries leading professionals. The week also includes some nice breaks from dancing with activities such as white water rafting with Jasper Rafting Tours, hiking, swimming and more. After a week of learning, the dancers will perform some of their combinations and skills on Friday for parents and family before heading home!

RMDP Uses 3 Buildings for the camp. The Jasper Activity Centre (JAC), the Jasper High School and the Jasper Elementary School. All three buildings are on the same block and do not require the dancers to cross any roads to access them.
This is the main building and where dancer registration and pick up occurs at the start and end of the camp. The main hall is used as one of the dance studios for classes, as well as where most evening activities occur and all meals are eaten here. This building also houses the gymnastics center where the acro classes are held and some of the dorm rooms which are in a private basement area, some of these rooms have bunk beds. There are also dorm rooms upstairs in this building.
This is a brand-new building approx. 200m from the JAC. There is a very large gymnasium used for dance classes as well as some dorm rooms in this building. These dorm rooms are in emptied out classrooms with the foam mats provided to dancers if they wish to use them.
This building is used for dance classes only and is approx. 200m walking distance from the JAC across the main field.
Each dorm room holds approx. 10-25 kids with volunteer dorm parents assigned each room. If a room is larger there will be multiple dorm parents assigned to one dorm room.
Dorm parents must complete a background check and submit prior to camp to ensure your child’s safety and we hire a night shift security guard every single night.
The JAC and High School provide thick 4” foam mats for the dorm rooms. Some rooms have bunks; others will make their beds on the floor. Dancers may bring their own air mattresses, pads etc. as well as their own bedding.
As a dorm parent, your job is to make sure the dancers are safe and sound. Your main job is to be in the dorm room the evening and at bedtime with the dancers. But you also become their honorary mom/dad for the week and are responsible for their well-being throughout the week. You are responsible for their attendance and knowing where they are at all times.
