No singing or dancing - all ACTING! Classes focuses on developing acting skills, developing character, improvisation, use of voice and diction, stage combat and audition techniques through theatre warm-up and games. All acting techniques enhance scenes and storytelling, and public speaking.

Students interested in competing in Festivals in solo, duet, or group divisions are encouraged to do so in the categories: Poetry, Public Speaking, Drama and Improvisation.

In the playwriting portion of the class, team-building exercises are used to teach the art of storytelling, creating characters, creative writing and playwriting. Students learn the elements of structure, plot, dialogue, setting, theme, scene development, and format to help them write a play that is theatrical and 'produce-able'.

Nancy Said

I’m so impressed with your patience and kindness as well as your family. I think the programs you run are extra special because of your gentle and caring manner, along with your amazing ability to connect with kids of all ages. The camp counsellors you have working with you all seem so well mannered and positive; it warms my heart to see that teenagers today can be good and kind people too. So much of my work deals with the negative side of people, it’s a breath of fresh air to see the generosity and kindness at your camp!
