Do you have an energetic performer in your household?  Perhaps an aspiring choreographer or a video camera enthusiast?  This program brings together a fun team that will work in unison performing with exciting 'music videos'.  In this camp your child will immerse themselves in music interpretation, creating a storyline, developing movement and/or dance routines for their favorite music videos.

First, campers start their project with writing the 'storyline' of that day's music video.  Next, they decide on the 'set' (cool locations at the college).  Finally, they are ready for choreographing and rehearsing the music video.  Several music videos will be created over the course of the week.  For camera enthusiasts, they will be planning, setting up/blocking and capturing many cool shots.  Campers can take turns in front or behind the camera.  This fun cast and crew team will promise a fun=packed day while learning new skills in team building, management and artistic creation.  (After camp, all footage is sent to a professional editor.  Parents will be mailed a usb as a keepsake).
