The 2022 Embody Dance Theatre camp will include acting games, dance warm-ups and a unique opportunity to put together a mini dance theatre production in a week’s time! Students will grow and stretch themselves as they take on specific character roles while working as a team to retell a new version of a favorite story through dancing and acting.
*Auditions: While all are welcome to participate in the camp, those who would like to try out for a lead role are invited to audition on Thursday, June 16 4:15-5pm.
Auditions will include cold reads and character work (no pre-prep necessary) and are required for students who desire a lead role (which includes the responsibility of showing up to the camp ready with lines memorized). Those who don’t participate in the audition are still able to fully participate in camp, however their speaking roles in the mini-production will be limited.
