Arts For All Too camp is an inspiring and engaging educational environment for our youngest performers, designed to address all aspects of the live theater experience at a developmentally appropriate level through active participation and ensemble-ship. Students will explore acting, dance, music, and art through expertly guided and collaborative activities culminating in a final Sharecare which reflects our young artist’s hard work and emerging skills.


Students will explore the power of their voices and bodies to communicate ideas and convey emotions via beginning acting techniques, creative storytelling, vocal exploration with text and music, and self-expressive movement activities.


Creating the visible context for a performance is equally important in theatrical storytelling and the Arts For All Too immersive experience exposes young learners to various technical aspects of live theater, from scenic painting techniques to lighting and props.


Under the guidance and with the encouragement of The Academy’s Teaching Artists, nothing is as exciting as the creativity, self-confidence, and artistic growth found in the living and breathing space of The Ocala Civic Theatre.


· Explore the excitement of creating vivid characters through fully realized storytelling utilizing techniques aimed at liberating imagination and honing the theatrical mind.



· Develop a functional understanding of the body and spatial/sensory awareness through an introduction to theatrical movement.



· Cultivate and advance musicianship and expression through introduction to music theory and vocal ensemble work.



· Discover and experiment with behind-the-scenes technical arts skills which transform a bare stage into a dazzling, showstopping performance environment.
