ABOUT THE CAMP

Our Summer Theater Camps strive to give students quality training and experience through age-appropriate activities that encourage self-expression, nurture self-esteem, and challenge the imagination. Our professional staff is committed to making this a memorable and magical experience for your child, who will have fun developing their talents and making new friends. Our Staff consists of collegiate theater and music majors who have extensive performance experience. Most are former campers who are pursuing careers in the arts. Under the direction of Dream City Theater Directors, Mark & Rachel Stoddard, our camps are led by award-winning teaching artists from the Phoenix area. Over the last 20 years, these quality camps have helped launch numerous aspiring artists into performing arts colleges and careers. Of the over 2000 campers who have been through our camps, most will not pursue a career in the arts but will have gained invaluable experiences that help them in everyday life. Skills like public speaking, stage confidence, creative collaboration, channeling their imaginative energy, problem-solving, following direction, and virtues such as respect, patience, friendship, and teamwork. The affordable price makes it a great way for students to develop their talents, make new friends, and have fun!

FOCUS OF THE CAMP

Musical Theater is truly a unique art form. It interweaves three major performance styles - acting, singing, dancing. In the theater business, a performer who is a "triple threat" has successfully mastered these three styles. Through educational games & activities, campers will explore character development, improvisation, stage presence, public speaking, auditioning, proper singing technique, basic musicianship, various theater dance styles and more. To culminate their experience, campers will rehearse a one-act musical featuring many popular Broadway songs to present for their final showcase performance.

A TYPICAL DAY AT CAMP

Upon arrival, students participate in an opening warm up session that includes movement, educational games, and activities. In groups, the students then rotate through three sessions. Each session uses exercises, games, and activities to teach and reinforce specific stage presence and performance skills:

  1. Acting (character development; script interpretation; awareness of the stage environment; auditioning; improvisation; ensemble work)
  2. Singing (proper breathing and vocal production techniques; projection and diction; reading musical notation; basic musicianship)
  3. Dancing (musical theater movement; production choreography; elements of several dance styles)

After a 10-15 minute snack and bathroom break, the remaining time is devoted to rehearsal for the production.

Registration is below. (When registering, use the child's current grade for the 2016-2017 school year.)

Take the Plunge | July 2017

July 22nd - July 23rd, 2017

Getting baptized is simply a public declaration of your faith. This symbolic act of Water Baptism tells those around you that the sins of your past have been washed clean and you are showing the whole world through your baptism that you are basing your life on Jesus Christ, the solid rock. Going under water represents your old life, when you come out of the water represents your brand new life with Jesus Christ.

When you are in a right relationship with Jesus Christ, you can live every single day with the assurance that God is going to give you guidance for our life. He sets you free!

Freedom big 0

Freedom Fall 2017

October 8th - November 4th, 2017

WHAT IS FREEDOM?

Freedom is a five-week course that teaches you how to hear God’s voice, break free from your past, and become the person you were created to be. Freedom consists of four weekly classes followed by an on-campus retreat. The teachings are God-focused – not problem focused. True freedom is not the absence of our problems but the presence of Someone. "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Freedom." (2 Corinthians 3:17) As we learn to hear, believe, and obey the truth about our past, present, and future, God begins to set us free.

WHO IS FREEDOM FOR?

Freedom is for everyone who wants to experience "life to the full" as Jesus described in John 10:10.

WHAT IS THE COST?

There is no cost to attend Freedom classes or the Freedom Retreat, but registration is required.

IS THERE CHILDCARE?

Childcare is no longer available.
