Summer Camp: Princesses invade Treon School of Dance in Danville

— DANVILLE — Some of the cast of the movie “Frozen” made appearances on the first day of princess camp in Danville.

A different princess will visit during the camp continuing through Thursday at Catherine Treon School of Dance at 315 Mill St.

They will include Ariel, from “The Little Mermaid,” and Jasmine, from “Aladdin.”

The idea behind the camp, in its ninth year, is “that every little girl wants to be a princess,” said Treon on Monday.

The 12 girls, ages 3 to 8, get to dress up in their finery. If they don’t wear a dress or princess outfit, they can borrow a tutu at the dance studio.

On the first day of camp, Bailey Ferster, 22, of Lewisburg, portrayed Elsa from “Frozen.” Bailey will be a senior at Penn State.

“She came back from an internship in North Carolina to help,” Treon said of Bailey, who took dance lessons from Treon for 15 years.

Jessica Yoder, who will be a Danville High School senior, was Anna.

Other assistants, and also Treon dance students, were Elyse Noll, a rising junior at Southern Columbia High School; Genevieve Zola, who will enter 10th grade at Danville High School; her sister, Zoey Zola, who will be a sixth-grader at Danville Middle School; and Lauren Yeick, a rising senior at Southern.

Besides crafts, the girls decorated crowns Monday along with playing princess-related games involving throwing a bean bag, ring toss on an inflatable castle, pin the princess on the castle. And, of course, they danced.
