LOOK! Two SPECIAL Teen Only INTENSIVES!
Summer Camp, at Infinity Arts Academy is a truly enriching summer experience. Students ages 7-17 will be taught foundations in THEATRE and FILM, combining MUSIC, DANCE, and ACTING. In addition to learning a strong foundation in each discipline, the students work together to prepare a cabaret-style stage performance at the end of each session, as well as participate in a short film project either as an actor or crew member. Each session will be themed and utilize songs and dialogue from the musical theatre world as well as plays and film. All ages will be working together in one group unless numbers are great enough for us to break into two separate age groups.
