Spotlight on Disney
One week session
9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
Rising 1st through rising 2nd graders
Does your child spend all day fighting Captain Hook or singing “Let it Go?” In this session, campers will explore Disney favorites like Moana, Peter Pan, and Frozen, along with acting out their personal favorite characters in a completely original Disney mash-up performance. We will learn basic theater skills like embodying a character's voice and physicality, facing the audience, and speaking loudly. We will also explore song, movement, and art. Using play, campers will be exposed to literacy skills like identifying the characters, setting, problem and solution. They will learn drama skills like pantomiming, creating characters and theatrical design. Finally they will learn life skills like creative problem solving, spatial awareness and teamwork.
We’ll move quickly to keep active minds and bodies engaged. We’ll begin each day with theater games to warm up the campers’ ability to use their bodies and voices in imaginative ways. Next we’ll read the story of the day and begin exploring it with activities like freezing as different characters or becoming the setting with our bodies. Then there will be a snack break and free play outside. After they get some wiggles out, campers can dig in and act out the story in guided dramatic activities. Campers will next be exposed to set, costume, and prop design through daily art projects. On the final day of camp, families will be invited to the amphitheater to witness an adventure the campers created together.
