PERFORMING ARTS SUMMER SCHOOL 2017

In partnership with Murmuration, The Young Americans (YA) will facilitate a week-long Summer School designed for participants with disability.

The Young Americans provide performing arts education and performance opportunities to young people and young adults around the world. Their workshops bring an incredible combination of skills-training, high-energy, team-building, confidence boosting FUN!

Anyone who has always wanted to enjoy the experience of musical performance is welcome to register. Unlike most other music performance workshops, prior training and experience in singing, dancing and acting is not necessary. However those who are performing arts students have an opportunity to be taken to a whole new level of excellence.

Participants will learn from and perform with this super talented international cast. As well as developing performing arts skills in singing, drama and dance, participants will perform alongside The Young Americans in a community sharing.

Using music as the tool, The Young Americans cast of trained college age performer-teachers provide a safe and fun atmosphere for participants to learn, explore, create, and GROW!
