Summer Camp Catonsville, Ellicott City For Your Drama Queen or King
My 5 ("and 11/12th's") year old loves to sing, dance and act, so when we were looking for things for her to do this summer (which would also give me the time needed for work) we decided that Performing Arts Camp would be a great fit.
My family has been going to Toby's Dinner Theatre for shows as long as I can remember. My sister Kim has been playing guitar (among other instruments) for shows there for over 20 years. When Kim told me about the CCTArts Program, I knew we had to check it out for Syd.
The Columbia Center for Theatrical Arts (CCTA) founded by Toby Orenstein, owner of Toby's Dinner Theatre is an amazing organization that not only teaches school-age kids how to perform by putting on an actual show, they also help kids to find their talents and focus on positive outlets.
Sydney has been involved in the Tots on Broadway program through CCTArts. Tots is a Saturday program where she has been learning some of the basics of performance for two sessions. She loved it for 45 minutes one time a week, but would she love it all day for three weeks? When we learned that the same amazing folks who run the Tots (and Kids) on Broadway program would be involved in the summer program, we knew that Sydney would be just fine!
Today there was a performance to give the parents and idea of what they have been working on for the last few days. I thought, what could they possibly have put together in 3 days? Don't they realize how much I have to do? Boy, Oh Boy, was I pleasantly surprised!
Here's a sample. Syd is the one in the yellow dress.
