NEW! Performing Arts Intensive:

New in 2017, we introduce our two-week Performing Arts Intensive. Participants will spend two weeks mastering skills as they relate to dancing, acting and technical theater. Participants will choose between a track that combines both Dance and Theatre courses, or they can focus on just Dance or just Theatre for the entirety of the two weeks. This 2-week intensive will culminate with a participant performance featuring both dance acts and theatre scenes.
 
Dancers will learn different movement styles, and experience a range of multiple classes from ballet and contemporary to improvisation, yoga and choreography. Expert instruction combined with creative and innovative workshops will insure that dancers will leave Mercersburg’s state of the art Burgin Center with a renewed passion for dance.
 
Participants will gain skills in improvisation, state presence, body movement, vocal techniques, character developments, ensemble work and problem solving. Actors will also be exposed to the technical elements of lighting, sound, make-up and costume design. 

A one-week option is also available.


What to Expect

Campers will stay in Mercersburg’s first class dormitories where college aged counselors will supervise residential life and lead fun activities from swimming, hiking to a camp wide talent show. Campers will also have the opportunity to travel off campus and see live performances in addition to learn from guest artists from the world of dance. Not only will campers experience a new physically understanding of dance but also understand its influence on the outside world.Whether you are serious about improving and expanding your dance repertoire or just want to have a really fun week polishing your steps, Mercersburg Summer Dance Workshop will be a fun filled and unforgettable week.
