The two most glorious words in the English language- “Musical Theatre!”  Spend one OR two weeks strengthening your vocal technique, honing your acting chops and expanding your dance skills.  While learning both classic and modern musical theatre, students will rotate through musical theatre performance, choreography and vocal performance with the directors and music directors of Youtheatre and the choreographers of Fort Wayne Dance Collective.  We highly recommend taking this as a two-week camp, but it can be taken as a one week experience. 

Each week will feature different material, so students can sign up for one week or both!

Christopher J. Murphy, Todd Espeland, Alyssa Plisco

FWDC Teaching Artists: Mandie Kolkman, Ashley Benninghoff, Olivia Rang
