4th Wall Theater - Acting Camp

We involve singing, dancing, and acting into every session held. No matter the age, ability, or verbal skills, we like to get our students moving, exploring, and learning. Teaching them critical theatre knowledge like projecting, articulation, and stage directions, we value our curriculum as a professional grade theatre workshop. But under this learning, we sneak in life skills reinforced with each new theatre game: eye contact, memory improvement, taking turns, speaking clearly, etc. Theatre is an excellent medium to learn/review social skills with dignity. Plus, it’s fun!
