Morning Workshop (Grades 2-5)
Young campers begin with dance/movement warm-ups, followed by fun vocalizations. Campers work on “audition” songs to practice and learn skills, including proper breathing, phrasing, and how to use a microphone. Campers are highlighted in solo and/or group musical numbers. Positive feedback instills self-confidence in this fun, welcoming environment. Children who have never been onstage will feel just as comfortable as those who are experienced thespians. There is an end-of-session performance that is open to parents, relatives and friends.
*Note: Campers enrolled in session 2 of this program will be in Musical Theater all day.
