Broadway Summer Academy

July 12 - 17, 2021 Des Moines Civic Center

Event Details

Summer Broadway Academy is for students entering grades 6-8 in the fall of 2021.

PUSH YOUR PERFORMANCE SKILLS TO NEW HEIGHTS!

Dreaming of being in a show or already performing in musicals? The BROADWAY ACADEMY is designed for middle school students in grades 6-8 who thrill at the thought of performing in a musical. These SIX days of camp bring experienced guest Broadway performers to lead sessions in the triple threat areas of musical theater – acting, dancing, and singing.

Daily workshops and rehearsals will help you dig into the world of Broadway and prepare you for your next chapter as a young performer. Faculty will begin with each participant at their ability level and lead them through activities designed to appropriately stretch their skills.

No audition is necessary, although previous experience in music, dance or acting is recommended; a willingness to jump in and try in all areas is required. 

For students entering grades 6-8, fall of 2021. 

 

Currently full.
