Camp - Improvisation in Music, Movement, Language, and Life!

Ages 8 and up
July 10 - 14
9am - noon
Cost: $150 (scholarships available if needed)
Students may bring lunch and combine morning and afternoon camps for a full day, 9-4pm.

This camp will be focused on the art of improvisation. Appropriate for kids with any amount of experience in music/dance, including none at all. (Those who play instruments are encouraged to bring them.) We will use games and other structured settings to allow improvisational instincts to flourish. The goals of the camp are to have fun together, to cultivate listening skills, to experience the joys and difficulties of creative participation in a group, and to gain confidence for gracefully handling what life puts in our paths.
