Spring Break Clowning Camp for KIDS

For ages 6-10(ish)
Limit to 15 students!
March 18th- 22nd 9:30 – 3:00pm
email: candybonestheatre@gmail.com for registration

A fun filled week of theatre games and expressive arts!
We will MAKE A SHOW!

With the foundations rooted in clowning principles, we will devise a theatre show on the themes of growth mindset and the art of making mistakes through:
-character development
-styles of performance
-story creation
-dance and music
-shadow puppetry

The games and exercises we work/play with contribute to the building of:
-self confidence, self identity
-creative communication, and thinking patterns
-community identity (listening, collaborating, and supporting each other)
-emotional and physical awareness (it’s ok FEEL!)
-exploring eye contact, “seeing and being seen” (it’s ok to FEEL AWKWARD, and the bravery of vulnerability)

Students should wear comfortable clothes and bring a lunch and water.
