Themes of science and art will be explored through dance, drama and visual art with the D'Hercy Dance Co.   Children will work with instructors in separate age groups to write a play, build the set and create songs and dances and songs to show off to family in the in a performance in the last hour on the last day of camp.

We do vocal lessons and write songs from simple melodies.  We will also learn popular songs to sing in the play that help move the plot forward.

We build the set by painting, collaging, sculpting with papiermache and constructing with cardboard.

We create various backdrops learning about perspective and staging.

We practice a variety of dance forms, such as tap, hip hop, modern, jazz and ballet depending upon students’ interests.  We pick our favourites to put in the show and choreograph the dances.

Laban-Effort Shape lessons direct the studies for building choreography, as well as other choreographic tools such as gesture phrases derived from characters.

For Drama, we play drama games and learn projection, the use of intention in action, plot logic, and character development.

Children write the play collectively and pick their own characters to be.

Materials Needed:  Stretchy clothing, indoor running shoes, lunch and 2 to 4 snacks and lots of water.
