Cancelled – Dance Camp

August 16 @ 1:30 pm - August 20 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Dear Families – This camp has been cancelled due to a positive COVID test of a Broadway Kid camper reported to us on Thursday evening, August 12. The scheduled gathering of campers on Friday, August 13, 2021 will not be able to be offered. Both performances scheduled for August 14 are being postponed. As campers participated in multiple camps this week and camp Instructors were staffing camps with youth from the Broadway Kids Camp and other camps held this week, we are immediately taking steps to limit the potential for spread immediately.  Please contact Ethan Wolf with questions about the camp at e.wolfaop@gmail.com. If you would like a refund for this camp, please contact Lexie Buck at l.buckaop@gmail.com. Thank you.

Dance camp will focus on age-based development. In each group, students will learn about dance history and styles/genres of dance. Student will also learn an upbeat piece of choreography and have the opportunity to contribute their own ideas to design the dance. Afterwards, each of the groups will come together and perform for one another in a mini performance. The students will then make props and incorporate them into the choreography and learn about staging, blocking, and tempo. At the end of the day, there will be a mini performance for parents and friends.

Instructor: Heather Summers is a graduate of East Carolina University with a BFA in Ceramics and Art Education 2016. She has worked Summer camps throughout NC for years and absolutely loves every second of them. She grew up at the beach and loves the outdoors, fishing and kayaking.

Heather is a brand-new Mama and will be introducing her new baby boy, Jakob, to many AOP participants this year. She loves every type of art imaginable, but definitely has an extra passion for pottery/clay. She lives with Jakob and her husband, Logan, in Washington, just a short way from our theater. She has been the art teacher at Chocowinity Middle School for the last 5 years and cannot wait to share her love of teaching and love of the arts here with us!
