Acting Against Cancer’s After School Programs & Camps
Acting Against Cancer is proud to offer an after school program at its rehearsal space at ArtSpace, 323 W. Broadway. For the Fall 2020 semester, classes will at least begin virtually due to recommendations from the governor. This semester for the AAC Kids will have a deep focus on the education of musical theatre in context. We will look at milestones in the history of American musical theatre and study their context while also working on performance elements that align with those shows. What ultimately will result is a solid, comprehensive knowledge of the genre and some good understanding of style varieties and shifts throughout history. The semester will end, as always, with a performance, though whether that’s virtual or in-person is still to be determined. It’ll definitely be a bit different, but it should illustrate to the students that the world of musical theatre extends beyond Disney and hopefully will open their minds to the vastness of the art form. There are two divisions: one for grades 3-7 and one for grades 8-12. While any child may participate, the AAC after-school program is completely free to children touched by cancer. If you know a child in this situation who may enjoy exploring the creative outlet of theatre, please email email@example.com.
