About the Senior Focus Groups
Acting: Campers in our acting focus group will work with the acting leaders to learn the fundamentals of acting such as
stage presence, character development, skit writing, projection. They will be split into smaller groups to write skits based on a theme that will appear in our final showcase at the end of camp. Campers will be given lines to memorize and will be responsible for building a character to portray in the show. They will also have the opportunity to work closely with the backstage group to imagine props and set pieces for their skits. Actors will sing and dance in both the opening and closing numbers of the show.
Singing Campers in our singing focus group will work with the singing leader to learn the fundamentals of healthy vocal technique including proper breath support, vowel formation, registration, posture, and stage presence. Singers will also have the opportunity to learn to harmonize a melody and learn proper memorization techniques. Song writing has been a part of our singing focus group for the last couple of years as well as the opportunity to play an instrument as needed. Singers provide pre-show music and are often given the opportunity to audition for solos in the pieces featured in the final showcase. Singers are also given the opportunity to dance in both the opening and closing numbers of the show as well as featured songs in the show, working closely with the dance focus group.
Dancing: Campers in our dancing focus group work with our head choreographer and dance assistant to learn featured choreography to appear in our final showcase. Often, the dancers work closely with the singing focus group on numbers that spotlight the dancing group and their specific talents. Dancers are also responsible for featured dance numbers that function as scene changes. While no experience is required, more experienced dancers are often chosen as group leaders that assist in leading choreography for the other groups in the camp. Dancers will sing in the opening and closing numbers of the show.
Backstage: Campers in our backstage group work with our backstage leader to design, imagine and create all sets and props that appear in the show. Backstage campers work closely with the acting group as skits are being crated to imagine the design of the props required by the skits. Backstage campers are often given the opportunity to appear on stage during a skit and are also given the opportunity to sing and dance in the opening and closing numbers of the show, however, stage appearance is not required of backstage campers.
