We are pleased to announce our 2017 SUMMER DAY CAMPS for 5-14 year old kids are being held at the Clove Creek Dinner Theater (18 Westage Business Center Drive, Fishkill).
Musical Theater - $260 each week
Our intensive week-long musical theatre camp teaches kids the entire process of putting on a musical by producing a musical in one week. It is fast paced as every child is given a chance to shine and stretch their musical abilities. Reading music, harmony, melody, choreography and blocking as well as backstage work such as sets, props and costumes are all part of the program.
Acting - $235
Our week-long acting camp where kids learn every aspect of the theater world. The kids participate in every aspect of the show during the course of the week with the creation of costumes, sets, and prop along with learning about story telling, script reading, character development, pantomime, improvisation and more. Confidence building and public speaking skills are learned through theater games focusing on eye contact and projection.
Camp Glee!TM - $260
Interested in being a pop star? Camp Glee incorporates popular music into your kid's repertoire and focuses on the basics of a cappella and harmony. Each kid is offered the chance to do a solo and/or duet with our guidance. Throughout the four days we work on a cappella group numbers and choreography just like on the show!

We regret that due to Christine's and Alexandra's commitments, we are unable to offer any classes during this 2017 Winter/Spring session.
However, you'll be glad to know that we're putting together the plans for SUMMER CAMP! YAY! Keep an eye on this space...
Classes move from beginner level that is playful and creative and then build towards developing a strong vocabulary that incorporates balance, flexibility, strength, control and discipline. Ballet is the basis and touchstone for all other forms of dance.
Classes provide a firm foundation in which students will explore rhythm, make melodies with their feet and challenge their minds with fast paced and expressive choreography.
Storytelling through music which includes singing, dancing and acting. Learning to read music and emote through songs. Learning to dance in character and the various rhythms of individual songs. Various exercises are done weekly with rehearsals toward a show at the end of the session.
One learns the technique and rules necessary in putting on short and long term improvisational scenes and shows. Helps develop the understanding of sharing a stage with other actors and learning to let go of control of a story. Sharpens wit and ability to think on ones feet. Each session will end with a performance.
All of the basics of theater such as inflection, diction, and projection, with the added emphasis on making clear, strong messages, character building exercises, scene study, and monologue work. The program will be consistently focusing on building confidence and self-esteem while lowering inhibitions and learning their theatrical strengths. The adult session will address: monologues, scene study, self-scripting/storytelling, mask making, having fun with Shakespeare, having fun with Molière, having fun with Greek tragedy (go big or go home).
