Madison currently enrolling for summer arts program
Students from fourth through 11th grades can find their creative spirits through the visual and performing arts by participating in the upcoming 2021 Summer Arts Camp at the Madison Square Center for the Arts.
The 5 p.m. June 15 deadline to register for the camp is fast approaching for the session that will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, July 5, through Friday, July 16, in the Madison Square Center for the Arts building.
The camp offers classes in dance, drama and set design and culminates with a final production in front of friends and parents.
Brittany Mayfield, general manager of events for the Madison Square Center for the Arts, said several patricipants have already registered.
“Everyone registered is really looking forward to this and feeling a sense of normalcy,” Mayfield said.
Mayfield said all the registered campers are excited about the camp’s grand finale, which is a musical production of Disney’s “Descendants, The Musical” scheduled for July 17.
“We’re incredibly excited to be able to put on this camp, and everyone is looking forward to it,” Mayfield said.
During the camp, campers in small groups move from class to class throughout each day with breaks for lunch and snacks. Class sessions include lessons in music, dance, set design, art, drama, theatre education and audition preparation. Each day concludes with musical rehearsals.
Camp participants are encouraged to bring a water bottle each day and wear clothes they can properly dance in, along with a packed lunch. Every camper will receive a T-shirt included in their registration. Tuition cost is $425, with a $25 family discount for each additional child.
“We are very excited to have the Summer Arts Camp coming up in July,” said Nathan Hanson, parks and recreation director for the City of Madison. “They’ll especially enjoy getting to put on performances for their family and friends. We’re all very excited and looking forward to July 5.”
