Limited to 48 students, participants ages 7-14 explore their creativity over 5 weeks as they work together with their instructors to produce a musical. Many have never been onstage before, nor integrated multiple arts disciplines into one performance. They are challenged to move beyond their comfort zones and constantly amaze their instructors with their talent, bravery and willingness to learn.
Camp MusArt is held Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and includes daily lessons in music, art, dance and drama along with special activities and field trips, and culminates in a ticketed live fully-produced performance for family, friends, and community members on the last day of each session.
Curriculum Music History & Appreciation Students are exposed to a wide variety of vocal and instrumental music, spanning many time periods, countries and cultures. Students are exposed to vocal scores and sheet music.
Art Students learn the basics of various visual art forms while learning about color, dimension, composition, form and light. Students will create artwork using a variety of materials and create props and certain scenic pieces for the fully-produced musical performance.
Dance Students will be introduced to various dance forms and will learn a variety of fundamental movements choreographed to many different musical styles including jazz, hip hop, and modern.
Drama Students will learn basic exercises and techniques for acting and improvisation, the importance of storytelling through design elements such as makeup, costumes, and scenery and participate in a fully staged production of a classic musical.
