Your children can shine from the comfort and safety of home during Valley Youth Theatre’s online performing arts camps this month.
The theater will offer its last Virtual Performing Arts Camps for kids ages 9 and older for this season from Monday, July 12 to Friday, July 23. Valley Youth Theatre’s All-Stars Camp, for children ages 5 to 8, will be held virtually July 12-16 and July 19-23. These camps will be held Mondays through Fridays and are accessible through the Zoom video chat system.
Youths ages 9 and older will choose a focus (either music or acting) and during the last part of the day will participate in a virtual rehearsal in their selected discipline. Kids will take virtual dance, acting and music classes from professional teaching artists. Students will work in groups to create original works, with help from their teaching artists in their areas of focus and perform them for family members and friends online the last day of camp.
The camp for kids 9 and older will take place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This camp costs $375 per session.
Children ages 5 to 8 can take part in the All-Stars Camps, where they will engage in storytelling, songs, crafts, creative drama and other activities related to a specific theme each week from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The theme for the week of July 12-16 is “How the West was FUN” and the theme for July 19-23 is “Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!” Students will perform a short virtual performance that the ensemble creates for family members and friends to watch at the end of the camp.
The camps for kids who are ages 5 to 8 cost $175 per week.
