Harnessing the Power of Children’s Imagination with Performing and Visual Arts at CAMP! Open House this Sunday (4/9)
Williamsburg’s Creative Arts and Music Programs – CAMP – a performing arts day camp now entering its ninth season is having an open house for its 2017 season this Sunday, April 9th from 10am to 12pm at 361 Manhattan Avenue. The Center For Performance Research, CAMP’s home since its inception, is a beautiful dance theater with full multi-media and LED lighting system set on the ground floor of a LEEDs certified building in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Teaching Artists Seth Ginsberg, Terence Murren, Rozz Nash, and Villi Vilhjalmsson created CAMP in 2009 to provide an enriching and fun arts experience for young people in Williamsburg and the nearby neighborhood of Greenpoint. Campers ages 4-11 participate in dance, music, visual arts and theater classes and learn alongside working artists. Each session has its own script developed by Camp with a professional script writer and theater director. CAMP culminates in a unique, multi media performance presentation with costumes, sets, songs, dances, and video. Last season’s sessions culminated in a full rock/disco Odyssey set in New York City in 1977 with cameos from Reggie Jackson and Andy Warhol and an adaptation of an Indonesian folk tale that incorporated Balinese gamelan and shadow puppet theater.
Our action-based, hands-on approach enables us to guide our Campers in learning new arts skills, creating exceptional work, and showcasing their knowledge at the highest level possible. We have a child centered, progressive teaching philosophy and maintain a 1:6 ratio to our Campers.
There is no other program that creates such a magical performance experience. There is no limit to what these kids are able create and perform in one session of CAMP!
OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, April 9th (10am-12pm)
Session 1: July 3-21 – CIRCUS!
Session 2: July 24-August 4 – THE BEATLES
