SUMMER CAMP DAILY ACTIVITIES
The Academy of Performance Arts takes pride in providing ALL of the Arts during camp sessions.
Performers will create a variety of art projects as they relate to the Camp theme including drawing, painting, collage, abstract art, clay and sometimes ceramics. In addition, the Art Performers will create sets, costumes and scenery for the shows.
Performers will engage in techniques of improvisation, comedy, drama, musicals, stage interaction and behind-the-scenes technical related aspects of a theater production in every camp session.
Performers will experience body motion in the form of hip hop, freestyle dancing along with creative movement patterns using popular music, notable Broadway show tunes and theme songs. Each session will have a unique routine designed for that theme.
Performers will do exercises designed to teach music theory, melody, harmony and rhythm. Through these valuable basics, Performers will become acquainted with the role music plays in the theater production. If a Performer demonstrates superior musical ability, they may be asked to join the House Band to play during that session's production.
Summer Camp sessions are Monday-Friday (excluding holidays) 8:30am-2:30pm. After Camp (care) is available for $75/week for performers who stay until 5:30pm.
All Performers participating in sessions should bring a light snack, a bag lunch and a drink.
Due to the physical nature of performance arts, Performers are required to wear socks and closed toe shoes (no flip flops or sandals), t-shirts and shorts or appropriate physical fitness/dance attire (no dresses).
Lunch will be at Noon and the Academy Staff and Performers will take their lunches and walk down to Horan Park for the lunch break. Camp session resumes back at the Academy at 1:00pm.
