2022 Summer Dance, Theater, and Literacy Free Outreach Program
July 18 – 29, 2022
Monday – Friday, 9:00am to 12:15pm

















The St. George Theatre will host a FREE 12-day, program for young people ages 9-18 designed to up their game when it comes to personal achievement and wellness.

This year’s theme is INSPIRING ICONS IN MUSIC AND DANCE!  From Aretha Franklin to Beyoncé, Alvin Ailey to Misty Copeland, and more, we will explore the role of influencers in Music and Dance for the past 50 years. We will expose students to a variety of disciplined classes in dance and theater all to gain confidence in the real world. Our goal is to share our knowledge of the arts to our students all while we inspire, motivate, enrich, and educate!

This 12-day program includes ten instructional days to learn about many techniques in dance while being introduced to theater, music, and so much more! Classes include modern, ballet, hip-hop, singing, acting, musical theater, dance history, careers in the arts, literacy, public speaking, preparation for auditions, and performance. In addition, students return to enjoy two complimentary live performances at the St. George Theatre.

Students are asked to wear comfortable clothing (t-shirt and biker shorts are perfect), and sneakers with socks every day for their technique classes. T-shirts are given to the students. Our reading specialist and acting professionals will work daily with the students and through our literacy component, they will learn so much more related to iconic singers and dancers. All students receive a book bag filled with fun and enriching books about dance, theater, famous performers, healthy lifestyles, and positivity, all to motivate and inspire!

If you are ages 9 to 18, and want to learn all about dance, music, and theater, we invite you to apply!
