High Flyin’ Arts Camps

These literature based art camps allows students to explore the performing arts of music, aerial dance and creative movement as well as theater, writing, drama, visual arts and costume design. Classes will use a classic children’s story as a jumping off point for crafting choreography, creating costumes and sets, making works of art and exploring music.

This summer’s Arts Camps are based on the book Zen Shorts by Jon J Muth. Zen is a Japanese word that simply means meditation. “Zen shorts” are short meditations — ideas to puzzle over. Jon J Muth’s remarkable book provides the opportunity to teach students to apply the valuable lessons from the story to their own lives — and to also see relationships between the illustrations and the story.

A journey is a trip taken in either physical or spiritual space which causes the traveler to grow, change, and evolve. It is undertaken with a measure of faith that the universe will provide, with the intention that the person will not return unchanged, and with awareness that everything encountered on the path is relevant. ~Nanette Robinson, ZUZI! Dance

Every day across the world people make the difficult decision to leave their homes. War, persecution, environmental disaster and poverty are just some of the reasons why a person might feel that they have to leave their family, community or country.

Refugees leave their country because they have no other choice and fear for their own life or safety or that of their family. Refugees also flee their country when their government will not or cannot protect them from serious human rights abuses.
Right now, as you read this, almost 10 million refugees around the world are fleeing political and religious persecution, ethnic conflict, and violence because of their sexual orientation.

There are many reasons that people become refugees, but only a few ways to obtain the protection they so desperately need. International agencies and local organizations do their best to assist everyone, but caring for the world’s most vulnerable is a daunting task. We must all raise our voices to protect the persecuted.

We’re thrilled to be collaborating with an amazing group of dancers for this year’s Summer Solstice performance. ZUZI! Dance, Dancesequences Inc., Mirela Roza and Dancers, and MAC & Company are sharing the stage for a Summer Solstice concert. These choreographers and companies will be premiering new work combined with deeper explorations of previous choreography, focusing on themes of displacement, embodiment, and temporal presence. We’ll be performing dances touching on ideas of journeying, love, loss, and letting go, as well as a spoken word performance based upon the original poem by Julian Dombrowski. Performers will be exploring our journeys to discover and express our individuality within societal conformity.

It takes courage to break the cycle of mindless obedience. ~Karenne Koo, Dancesequences Inc.
