Experience all of CCM – in one week! This multi arts camp lets you choose your “major” while enjoying something new in your electives each day! Choose the music, theater or dance track and by the end of the week you’ll have grown as an artist, made new friends and maybe a new hobby!  

Music Track:

Performance emphasis on singing, paired with movement, percussion, and other instruments. Musical skills include vocal development, rhythmic competency, pitch matching, note reading and an introduction to music history. Instrument exploration  including time in the piano lab and trying out instruments is part of the program.

Theatre Arts Track:

Theater Arts Classes will develop the young performer by exploring the Actor's Three Tools: Voice, Body, and Imagination.  Drills, exercises and improvisational games are designed to foster confidence, method, and skill within a comfortable, non-competitive atmosphere.  Various Theatrical forms will also be explored, as well as instruction in  Backstage Etiquette, Stagecraft, and Rehearsal Deportment.

Dance Track:

Campers who choose our dance area will be taking daily ballet classes. Campers will enhance and explore their movement skills with classes in tap, jazz, modern, and character dance.  Attention to coordination, alignment, spatial awareness, and musicality will be stressed in each dance style. Dancers will also have the opportunity to create choreography and improvisational dance, in addition to gaining greater knowledge about dance history, injury prevention, mime and acting for dance, ballet repertoire, and costuming.
