This fun-filled camp will include stage acting, along with tap and jazz dance. Tap and jazz skills will allow the students to experience these styles of dance while improving their flexibility, sense of rhythm, and overall coordination. In order to focus on acting, tap, and jazz, students will not be singing in this camp. Students will prepare and perform acting scenes and musical selections from The Descendants to perform ON STAGE for family and friends to enjoy!
