EXPLORATION
(ages 6-9)
Younger campers spend exhilarating days experiencing everything from world rhythms and dance to choral singing and mixed-media art projects, from instrument making to theater and storytelling. Full-day Exploration sessions are taught by enthusiastic professional artists who understand how best to help children spark their own creativity.
Each session features a fresh and exciting mix of performing and visual arts experiences that vary thematically from session to session. Structured activities are balanced with free time for play outdoors. Each session concludes with a showcase for family and friends.



BROADWAY BOUND
(ages 9-14)
Broadway Bound challenges young people with strong interest in theater to train as a “triple threat” singer, dancer and actor. Session One’s music celebrates Broadway classics, while Session Two emphasizes contemporary favorites. Session Three focuses on powerhouse Broadway vocals in a concert production of the musical Ragtime, a collaboration with the SF Bay Area Theatre Company, a company founded by SFArtsED alumni. The demands of the fully staged concert production mean an extra week of rehearsals, July 17-21, in the Theatre Department of San Francisco State University. Performances of the show will be Friday, July 21 and Saturday, July 22. Enrollment in a Broadway Bound session is a prerequisite for consideration for being invited to join the SFArtsED Players musical theater company.



ART & DESIGN
(ages 10-14)
Art & Design classes will focus on mixed media visual arts in one session, fashion design in another and sculpture in yet another.

SFArtsED Summer: blasts from the past.

Sometimes, if you're lucky, students become teachers.
One of the most rewarding aspects of the SFArtsED summer production is the added collabortion of former SFArtsED students and the younger performers. In addition to working with the best professional artists out there, the Broadway Bound program welcomes back SFArtsED alumni to tackle lead roles in the summer musical and serve as mentors to members of the Players musical theater troupe and to the novice Broadway Bound students. It's an extraordinary partnership, and you'll see the results in Guys and Dolls, performed July 22 at Hertz Hall on the UC Berkeley campus (showtime is 8pm) and on July 25 at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (showtime is 7:30pm).

Now let our alumni stars tell you more.

 

Inspiration comes in many forms.
For Broadway Bound students in Session 2, inspiration took the form of five boys who share the role of Billy Elliot in the touring production of the Tony Award-winning Billy Elliot: The Musical. With thanks to SHN, the five Billys spent an afternoon with our students doing warm-up routines, teaching dance steps and sharing insight into the life of a professional performer. Don Sanchez of ABC KGO-TV was there and filed this report:
