South Florida’s premier training center for young adults is back for Summer Camp 2021. The Coral Springs Center for the Arts offers a fun, theatrical-based learning experience for children and teens, culminating in four major musical productions.
At Next Stop Broadway, children will be split into age-appropriate “Pods” and remain safely in their classrooms. Simultaneously, instructors rotate, bringing fun activities designed just for them in singing, dancing, acting, performing, and more. Each session focuses on a different musical and culminates in a fully designed production in which every camper participates.
Online registration begins March 22 at www.TheCenterCS.com/NSB. Only $99 down to reserve a spot. Space is limited and will sell out quickly.
The Next Stop Broadway Summer Camp will offer two separate programs (Youth Camp and Teen Theatre Project) at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.
Youth Camp (Ages 7-13)
Campers will stay safely separated into age-appropriate Pods throughout their camp experience participating in a fun and exciting curriculum designed and facilitated by their Pod’s Instructors. They will be visited daily by the Production team, learning their group scenes, songs, and dances. The Activities Director also visits bringing camper’s tasks for Spirit Rallies, Dress Up Days, etc. The camper’s day is jampacked and extremely active while learning and participating in every class. Pods also safely rotate to the theater and lunch area.
