2021 SUMMER CAMPS
Aurora Theatre Academy Summer Camp One-Day Sale
After more than a year of digital learning, students are ready for the fun and camaraderie of in-person theatrical experiences. Elementary school aged students can participate in a Heroes and Villains session, a musical theater camp Find Your Happy Place inspired by the Trolls movie and a Harry Potter-themed Magic and Mischief camp.
Older students can choose from a musical theater intensive Showstoppers, an Audition Bootcamp or the acting intensive featuring scenes from Mirror Of Most Value: A Ms. Marvel Play. The camps culminate with the three-week production camp. Students will perform Disney’s Moana JR., a 60-minute musical adaptation of the 2016 Disney animated film. The show features all of the beloved songs from the film, written by Tony®, GRAMMY, Emmy, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina, including “How Far I’ll Go,” “Shiny” and “You’re Welcome.”

This summer, high school students have FOUR choices of programs! Performers can choose between our intermediate level or advanced level MUSICAL THEATRE DANCE INTENSIVES - or they can choose between performing in a full-scale production of FAME THE MUSICAL, or working on the technical side of both of our summer productions of FAME THE MUSICAL and FAME JR.

I am so excited to bring back a revamped and improved version of my signature Foundations: Voice and Body class.
Whether you are looking to refine your voice skills to support your acting work, or build greater awareness of how your movement tells the story, or looking to overcome performance nerves, this 10-week online course is for the whole performer looking to understand how to allow their full selves to become present in their work.
This course incorporates Fitzmaurice Voicework®, Knight-Thompson Speechwork, Laban, Noguchi Taiso, Organic Intelligence, and other methodologies to support the work of each participant and complement their existing strengths.
Fitzmaurice Voicework® centers on four primary areas:
1. Destructuring through specific exercises designed to release the body from tension and to find a breath that is spontaneous and free, allowing emotions to be voiced with ease.
2. Restructuring the breath so that the voice is supported and the performance is authentic, repeatable, and sustainable.
3. Presence to develop a fluid internal and external awareness while channeling and responding to what is present in the moment.
4. Play to engage fully with a spirit of curiosity and openness to what presents itself and what impulses arise.
When: Wednesday, April (7:00 - 9:45 pm, eastern time)
Cost: In consideration of COVID and its impact on the community, this course is $230, $210 if you register before March 20.
Payment plans are available. E-mail email@example.com for details.

The history will be analyzed and illustrated by the operatic selections from the works which most accurately contribute to the telling of these stories.
