Performing Arts Summer Camp
For Students Ages 6 to 19 | Monday – Friday | 9:00am-3:00pm
Students will experience the magic of theatre and self-expression.
This program is built for each student to gain knowledge and develop new skills in the theatre arts.
Will you have a lot of fun? Yes! Will you need to learn your lines? Yes! Will you need to be present in class and try hard? Yes!
Our comprehensive programming of singing, dancing, and acting will encourage your child to grow not only as a performer but as a person. Theater teaches collaboration, social skills, accountability, focus, and confidence. Throughout each summer camp day, our students will work together in acting class through scene work and improv, problem solve through movement in dance class, and build confidence and focus in voice. At the end of each day students will collaborate and celebrate their new found talents.
Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned performer, we welcome you and can’t wait to take your talents to the next level!
