Parent to Parent: Theater & Ballet Camps
If your kid is a drama queen or maybe a budding artist, we have some fun summer camps just for them. 7's Lynn Martinez checks them out in tonight's Parent to Parent.
WSVN -- Whether your kid has a knack for acting, or they prefer to spend the day painting, there's a lot going on this summer at St. Mark's Episcopal School in Fort Lauderdale.
Amy Gillespie, St. Mark's Episcopal School: "We have a traditional day camp, we have a sports camp, the musical theater, and we have a two-week art camp."
Kids are invited to express their creative side through drawing, painting and more.
Amy Gillespie, St. Mark's Episcopal School: "She is planning to do self-portraits, jewelry-making, some things with clay."
Or they can take center stage in a musical production.
Sammie loved her role or roles in "Annie" last year.
Sammie Adair, 11 Years Old: "I played an orphan Kate, and you really didn't have just one part, you played everything."
Caleb says he really enjoys the chance to perform.
Caleb Denison, 13 Years Old: "I just like acting around, singing, dancing."
The best part is, anyone can do it.
Amy Gillespie, St. Mark's Episcopal School: "They'll do a little audition, they will get a part, and at the end of the two weeks, they will do a presentation for family, friends and also for our camp."
The camp runs for eight weeks and has extended care hours for working parents.
Teacher: "Hands on your hips. Are you smiling?"
If your daughter dreams of performing in "The Nutcracker" one day, this camp may be for her.
At the Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet & More, girls are taught the finer points of dance.
Astrid Audet, Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet & More: "Our summer camp starts age 3 through 10, and we also have classes for the higher, more intermediate advanced level."
Astrid Audet, Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet & More: "Good, relax those shoulders, there we go."
From classical ballet to tap and jazz, the camp is open to girls at any level.
Astrid Audet, Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet & More: "The idea first is to get them to love it, and stay active and busy and enjoy what they're doing."
This camp proves girls just want to have fun.
Astrid Audet, Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet & More: "They're very busy, but they make lots of friends and they really have a good time."
