Lauren Jamieson returns to THE CAMPUS at Quinta Do Lago to host more fun dance camps to boost fitness and wellbeing for juniors

The Campus, Europe’s newest five-star multi-sport and wellness hub at Quinta do Lago in Southern Portugal, is preparing to welcome back dance queen Lauren Jamieson for a dance camp after her triumphant debut in 2018.

Lauren Jamieson returns to host junior dance camps at The Campus during the Easter school holidays from 15th – 19th April from 10:00am to 12:00pm for juniors 7-16 years of age.

Lauren is preparing to return after her first round of dance classes proved to be a huge success, with youngsters relishing the chance to work with a professional dancer who has worked with the likes of Dua Lipa and appeared on television shows such as Strictly Come Dancing and the Brit Awards.

Children attending Dance Camp will learn a variety of dance styles, routines and tricks, and use their creativity to develop their own dances. The camp will conclude with a final dance show for family and friends.

Lauren says:

I loved every second of my time at The Campus and can’t wait to return to and work with more enthusiastic kids this year. The ethos of the class is to have fun and develop their dance skills and the smiles on all the faces confirmed we found the perfect balance last time.”

Sean Moriarty, CEO of Quinta do Lago, believes the dance camps help to cement The Campus as Europe’s premier multi-sport and wellness hubs for a family sporting holiday.

Lauren was a wonderful addition to our impressive list of high profile ambassadors at The Campus last year and we are all looking forward to seeing her back in the dance studio after the wonderful success of her first visit.”

Lauren Jamieson is the latest addition of high-profile stellar sports stars adding to a world class level of sports coaching and mentoring who are now partnering with The Campus.
