Most of the students were already acquainted with each other after participating in the school's drama club. Some have taken Doig-Marx's course before, while others don't have a lot of formal experience.
"We have so many different levels that come in," said Doig-Marx. He says that doesn't present a problem though, since all the students work hard.
The dance camp was originally planned to be two weeks long, but after only ten students signed up (two more than last year), it was decided to scrap the second week. Doig-Marx is not ruling out a longer experience for the future, however.
"I would love to do a two-week program," he said, which would require more interest. "[The program] is like the best-kept secret in the area." He values students who are passionate about dance, however. "They work hard. If they want to be here they make it through the day easier than if it's something they were forced to do."
Those who missed the opportunity to work with Doig-Marx should have another chance down the road, however.
"As long as I can walk, I'll still do it," he said.""
