Dream Big! Musical Theatre Camp for K-2
This camp is a personalized experience limited to 8 children and involves just 60 minutes each day (1:40 to 2:40 PM) Mondays through Thursdays. Each child invents a their own fairy-tale character, animal, or superhero who they would like to become and chooses a song for their character. Our director, Anthony Azzolina, leads the children through a journey that includes character interviews, theatrical skill games, and work on projection, articulation, listening, facial expression, while developing confidence in front of a camera. The students will hold an online performance on July 24
