Description and Registration

Description: This summer program gives older elementary and middle school students instruction in acting, dance, and music. Each day, students will have a schedule of classes and rehearsals. Guest artists will also be brought in to teach students master classes in special topics. There will be opportunities for instruction both in small groups and as an entire ensemble.

The emphasis of the program is on developing strong performance skills. As part of that goal, each student will be featured in a final performance as a singer, actor, and dancer. Students will also have opportunities to develop their own pieces during daily supervised rehearsals and will have a chance to perform their own "creative projects" for the rest of the students in the program each Friday.
