Explore the exciting world of puppetry with new instructor Danielle Szymanski! In this 1-week camp, students will learn about puppetry by designing, building, and performing with their own puppets. Each student will design and build a unique Muppet-style hand puppet. After completing their puppets, students will create a new character and learn puppeteering techniques to bring their puppet to life. Students will then collaborate to write original skits and learn how to perform for film/television. Finally, the skits will be recorded and published online to be shared with family and friends.

Ages 8-12

Taught by Maria Getz Beery, this high energy class will get you thinking on your feet! Students will learn the basics of improvisation through a variety of games and exercises.
