Camp Broadway returns to Buffalo in summer 2019 with Mainstage and The Next Step, two exciting theatre camps taught by seasoned Broadway professionals. Mainstage is Camp Broadway’s original one-week summer camp for young people ages 10 to 17 with an interest in musical theatre. Campers develop confidence, character, and presentation skills through ensemble performance. The Next Step is a one-week specialized musical theatre intensive for advanced performers ages 14 to 17.
Exploring the Arts introduces students in grades 9-12 to various artistic disciplines including the visual, literary, and performing arts. Professional teaching artists from a variety of disciplines conduct a sequence of interactive workshops with a particular theme or artistic focus. Learners experience multiple approaches to the artistic process and demonstrate their learning with a final presentation.
