"WEST SIDE STORY" / "ON YOUR FEET" - SPANISH IMMERSION THROUGH MUSICAL THEATRE
JULY 10 - JULY 14, 2017 / FULL DAY 9AM - 4PM
"Get on your feet" with theatre and language skills this summer as you learn choreography and songs from the Broadway classic, "West Side Story" and one of Broadway's newest hits "On Your Feet." Morning breakout sessions in scene study, vocal technique, and improvisation will be taught bi-lingually, while afternoons are filled with song and dance from these wonderful musicals. Music will be learned in both Spanish and English. First time Spanish speakers to experienced Spanish speakers are welcome. Some sessions will be taught in small groups based on age.
"IN THE HEIGHTS" / "ZOOT SUIT" - SPANISH IMMERSION THROUGH MUSICAL THEATRE
JULY 17 - JULY 21, 2017 / FULL DAY 9AM - 4PM
Before "Hamilton," composer Lin Manuel Miranda made a splash on the Broadway scene with "In The Heights." This musical also required some knowledge of the Spanish language for performers. "Zoot Suit," written by Luis Valdez, was the first Chicano play on Broadway and featured boogie-woogie style music. And what better way to hone those language skills than through theatre! Morning breakout sessions in acting technique, vocal technique, and improvisation will be taught bi-lingually, while afternoons will concentrate on scene work (for older students), choreography, and music from these influential productions. Music will be learned in both Spanish and English. First time Spanish speakers to experienced Spanish speakers are welcome. Some sessions will be taught in small groups based on age.
CHINESE SHADOW PUPPETRY - AMBASSADOR CAMP
JULY 24-28, 2017 / FULL DAY 9AM-4PM
TAS+SD has a proud tradition of working with students from China each year, and we are excited to have a wonderful group of students visit in July. This provides a great platform for cultural exchange between American and Chinese students. Each morning, students will participate in theatre exercises, improv games, scenework, and monologues as they share their language, culture, traditions, and stories. In the afternoon, students will work together to create an authentic Chinese Shadow Puppetry performance which will be performed at the San Diego International Youth Arts Festival on Sunday, July 30. (The performance is optional, but those who will be performing, must be available after noon on 7/30.) This is a truly one-of-a-kind experience, and we are so happy to build a bridge between our cultures through theatre arts.
AUGUST 7-11, 2017 / FULL DAY 9AM-4PM
AGES: INCOMING 6th-9th GRADERS
Summer Conservatory is an intensive theatre program geared for students whose focus is on musical theatre training, but would like to dig deeper into the core of acting as a base for their other disciplines. Esteemed professionals from the San Diego theatre community will work with students to develop and refine performance skills, broaden their acting knowledge, and build confidence in their craft. Summer Conservatory is a great prep for the 2017-2018 Conservatory Program.
