This Summer, choose from 4 themes inspired by popular titles for all ages, plus our 4 skill-building classics: Broadway Dancing, Acting, Singing and Triple Threat!

Something is amiss in Zootopia, and only you can help us save the day! This performance camp will incorporate movement, improv, and basic character work. Join Officer Judy Hopps and her unlikely partner, con-artist Nick Wilde, as they team up to solve a mysterious case in this hilarious musical adventure based on the wildly (heh heh…) popular Walt Disney film.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Back by popular demand, the third in the series - "Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban.” Based on the third novel in the Potter series by J.K Rowling, this performance camp will incorporate acting, improvisation, and character work. Join Harry, Ron, and Hermione for a magical adventure through Hogwarts, where we solemnly swear we are up to no good.

Join the precocious Matilda and her rebellious school-mates in their fight against a very evil headmistress. This performance camp for students grades will incorporate movement, improv, and character work. Don't miss out on the magical antics that will ensue in this classic Roald Dahl tale!
Join Koala Buster Moon and his group of charismatic contestants - a mouse, a pig a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine to name a few - in the singing competition of a lifetime. This performance camp for students grades will incorporate acting, improvisation, and character work. Sing to save the theater with us this summer!
Singing Camp:  Designed to help hone vocal performance singing skills, this all singing Vocal Boot Camp is a great opportunity for beginners as well as seasoned performers. Students will learn basic to intermediate techniques, as well as how to properly use their voice to convey character and emotion while performing a song.  The Final performance will include lots of songs the camp worked on individually in addition to group musical pieces.

Triple Threat Camp: Designed to help the musical theater performer, this camp is a great opportunity for beginners as well as seasoned performers to work on all of their skills. Students will learn basic to intermediate techniques with lessons in acting, singing and dancing each camp day.  The final showing will be an informal talent showcase featuring triple-threat skills.


We have new options at the start of most weeks from June-August for grade levels K-6. To filter by grade or month, there's a "Category" sidebar on the right (on some screens and on mobile devices: scroll to bottom of the page for Category list).

Why can I only purchase one class at a time?

Because we need to collect registration information specific for each of our students, you can only add one class to your basket at a time. Once you complete the order and your basket is empty, you will be able to purchase a spot in a different class for your additional student(s). After-care and Before-care are available as add-on options after you select a camp.
