Spring Break Drama Camps in Calgary for Kids, Youth and Teens ages 7-14
Drama is a hands-on, experiential learning that engages mind, body, voice, senses and emotions in dynamic learning. Theatre arts is a branch of performing arts which focuses on live performances and is a unique, immersive learning experience requiring Players be interactive, explorative and experimental with their skills.
At Theatre A Go-Go, we strive to cultivate and nurture that personal connection through face to face contact; in order to develop friendships and improve confidence through communication and sharing.
Salutations Drama Queens, Kings and Royal Families,
As part of the guidelines set out for Community Centres and Performance Activities, by the Alberta Government’s Step 2 – “A Path Forward”, restrictions were eased Feb. 8 to allow Children's performance activities and again eased March 8 to include the re-opening of Community Halls.
However, it has just come to our attention that very recently Dr. Deena Hinshaw has clarified that day camps will not be allowed to open until step 4 of the province’s COVID-19 Path Forward plan.
In these uncertain times, there is one thing that we are certain of and that is the importance of safety for all and with a heavy heart we will be adhering to the new Policy put in effect. We will have to cancel the Spring Break Camps and it is very unfortunate that we will not be able to proceed with the Programs; as now more than ever children need the opportunity to express themselves with confidence and to play.
Looking forward, we are preparing for Spring Drama Classes as they fall within the guidelines set out in Step 1 and 2 of Alberta’s “A Path Forward”. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO ON SPRING DRAMA CLASSES
In the meantime, we encourage you to imagine, explore, express and play safe in the face of adversity.
Take care of yourselves and each other.
And now for a brief Intermission!
Spring Break Camps cancelled.
WHO: Ages 7-14
WHAT: ADVENTURES FROM CAMELOT – Imagine the whimsical world of Camelot where characters learn about the importance of friendship. With a little magical help from Merlin, many adventures ensue and a young Arthur struggles between that which is right and wrong, before becoming a King. In a fun-filled week of drama classes, players will begin with self-development drama activities in order to expand their vocal and body expressive tools. With this enriched self-awareness they will develop their communication skills by exploring Storytelling, character development and Theatre and Performing Arts techniques. On the last day of Camp, players will share their Theatre and Performing Arts skills with confidence, by presenting an adaptation of the Legends of King Arthur. At this time, the Celebration of Learning Presentation will be recorded, without an audience, and a digital copy will be made available for parents, for a minimal fee.
