Summer is fast approaching, and kids and parents alike relish in longer days, warmer weather, and a less structured schedule. Kids need a break from school, but they also need to stay active and moving. A summer dance or theatre camp is a great way to occupy your kids this summer, and introduce them to the wonderful world of performing arts. Maybe your little one is already hooked on dance, summer camps are the perfect way to keep that interest going. If your child has never danced or acted before, a summer camp is a wonderful opportunity to explore the world of theatre and dance.
With school out of session, some kids can resort to TV and video games, and it can be hard to get them up and moving. A fun, interactive theatre and dance camp is a great way to encourage them to get exercise and learn new skills. Physical activity is good for the body and the mind, and performance and dance are a great platform to move and be active. Provide an opportunity for your child to be active this summer with one of our great camps!
Keeps Them Learning
While your child may not be doing math or history lessons at one of our camps, they are nevertheless learning. Summer is a great time for kids to have a break from the mental rigors of school, but keeping the brain active through movement and creativity helps to keep them engaged. Your kids will be having so much fun, they won’t even realize they are learning and growing through dance!
A Break From the Heat
Summer is a wonderful time to explore the beautiful outdoors, but some days it can be too hot to spend much time outside. A performing arts camp gives your child an indoor break from the heat, and allows them to get much needed movement away from the sun’s rays. Keep your child active, while staying cool with a summer theatre camp.
Make New Friends
The summer months can make it hard for your kids to stay in touch with all of their friends from school, especially if they are scattered far and wide geographically. Mom and Dad may be tired of playdates at their house, but still want social engagement and activity for their kids. A camp is a great platform to bring kids together to dance, play, and work together to bring a performance to life. Dance and theatre friends form lifelong bonds, and often are in multiple performances together, solidifying their relationships.
Our camps range from half day to full day, and there are so many different performances to choose from. This summer, Broadway Arts Centre is proud to offer the following performances:
