In camp programs, students create stories together, sing, dance and activate their imaginations. Led by professional actors, they flex their imaginative muscles and learn theater skills that inspire self-confidence and community. Theater games build their social-emotional and executive function skills as well as teach joyful ways they can play at home too.
Explore your creativity through creative movement! Our Holiday Camps introduce young dancers to the fundamentals of ballet, modern, and choreography with an emphasis on creative expression and imaginative play. This camp supports dancers in strengthening their motor, technical, cognitive, social and emotional skills in addition to developing their creativity, coordination, flexibility and musicality. Campers will be led by our visual arts teacher in a guided art lesson, followed by a free art exploration where they can experiment and create something by following their own impulse and creativity. The afternoon will be punctuated with snack breaks and rests to ensure they get the most out of the extended day.
