Young Theatre Makers 1 with Celia! Ages 6–10

An exciting introduction into the world of theatre for young creatives! We'll explore the art form through the joy of movement and let our imaginations run wild as we expand our storytelling capabilities!

The week will begin with exciting theatre games to foster strong vocal and movement abilities. We'll work on the balance needed in theatre to have both freedom of expression and purposeful movement. As the week continues, we'll put these new skills and discoveries into practice, in rehearsing a short, family-friendly piece to be performed for an audience at the end of the day on Friday. Throughout the week, we'll spend time outside when the weather permits.

Campers can expect to dance, play, use their imaginations, and learn how to tell stories using their voices and bodies. Most importantly, campers can look forward to gaining a love for the magical storytelling powers of theatre!!
