No previous stage experience needed!  Each session will end with a small performance for friends/family to give you the experience of acting in front of a live audience. Don’t worry- no audition or memorization required! Ages 5-7.

Students will incorporate vocals, dance, blocking, and acting with tunes from Frozen, Lion King, Aladdin, Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Hercules.  There will be a small performance at the end of camp. Ages 10 and up.
