WHO: Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts announces Summer 2017 ArtsCamp.
WHAT: ArtsCamp 2017 is an innovative summer camp that provides 80 young artists with a working knowledge of what it takes to bring a show from an idea to reality. The program offers an intensive performing arts approach that focuses on dramatic composition and performance for students ages 9-11.
Under the guidance of eight professional teaching artists, campers will explore art, acting, dance, technical theatre and vocal music which will culminate in an original showcase performance. For campers with a keen interest in the performing arts, this curriculum provides an opportunity to expand their skills and learn new technical and performance skills.
This curriculum provides an opportunity for students to expand their technical and performance skills. Each camper experiences every facet of the performing arts, from working with sets and lighting instruments, to playing theater games and learning dances and songs.
ArtsCamp culminates in an ensemble piece that is produced by the young artists under the guidance of the teaching artists. The campers have a strong hand in writing, choreographing and conceptualizing it. They create most of the technical and design elements and either performed in or ran the show from backstage or the booth. Two presentations of the showcase will be open to parents and friends on Friday, June 23 at 3 and 6 pm in Persson Hall.
