Cali Dance Camp
is a VIP summer dance camp at an exclusive campground in Hollywood that's tucked in-between the world-famous Hollywood Sign and Griffith Observatory.

CDC is the premier Los Angeles dance camp of the summer for dancers of all ages, shapes, sizes, and levels of skill at Camp Hollywoodland!


The official Dance Engagements debut event was the first annual Cali Dance Camp in 2008 at picturesque Big Bear Lake, CA. From that point on, the rest is history. Every year since, our summer dance camp has grown in popularity, attendance, schedule, line-up, and community support. 

Our exclusive dance camp helps dancers of all shapes, sizes, races, ages, and genders improve their dance knowledge, skills, and abilities. Our camps promote self-respect, healthy lifestyles, positivity, teamwork, on-stage performance, and encouragement.

Cali Dance Camp was founded to provide a premium experience to youth in and around Los Angeles without putting a dent in your pocket.

Founder Adel Carrera took the pros and cons from their experiences at dance camps, events, and workshops throughout their teenage years and morphed it into the unrivaled organization that stands today. The Dance Engagements family continues to increase in size and talent. We bring bigger and better acts, performers, instructors, and entertainers every year. This ensures that our campers experience nothing but the best because nobody does it better than we do.

Our trendsetting summer dance camp highlights include, first and foremost, healthy & well-balanced meals, group activities such as Smores Tales Night @ The Camp Fire, Nature Hikes, Show and Tell, Swimming, Movie Nights, Dance Party Nights, and last but not least, the official CDC camp dance taught to our attendees. 

Campers can expect to learn original & custom choreography from expert instructors working alongside some of Hollywood’s most elite. Our master instructors are highly skilled in dance types such as Latin, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Modern, Jazz, Contemporary, Salsa, Flags, Military, African, Ballet, and Yoga, with a forte in Drill.

In 2011, we found and settled in at our official summer dance event location at historic Camp Hollywoodland, tucked between the world-famous Hollywood Sign and the Griffith Observatory, just a couple of minutes from the Hollywood Walk of Fame but a world apart. 

The countless positive testimonials and reviews from happy campers assure us that what we’re doing is right, and it drives us to push harder. Our motto is Quality over Quantity, and at Cali Dance Camp, that is all you can expect, nothing less.

This historic campground was designed to provide youth in the Los Angeles area with a recreational camp close to the city, in a mountain-like atmosphere.

At CDC, campers will intake various unique dance classes while experiencing and exercising hands-on with self-discipline, teamwork, social and cognitive building skills as well as family values. We achieve this by engaging in different group-based activities such as a hike to the infamous “Bat Caves” from the 1960's television series “Batman”, karaoke, storytelling, camp fire rings, and the highly anticipated Saturday night parties with in-house DJ, self-improvement workshops and much more.

Towards the end of our camp, we host an award ceremony and dance showcase to honor those campers who have not only excelled but have also shown true dedication and hard work throughout the course of CDC.

We encourage and welcome all parents, guardians, and friends to join us and support your loved ones at the ceremony.

"I learned so much at this camp and I loved everything about it... the instructors, students, staff, and cooks. Thank you so much for this great experience!"

Love, Chrstina C.
