NC Arts in Action Performing Arts Summer Institute
July 5th-July 8th, 2016

Come be a part of the NC Arts in Action Performing Arts Summer Institute! In partnership with the Triangle Youth Ballet, Arts in Action offers a four-day Summer Institute in dance technique, choreography, creative movement, acrobatic lifting and poetry, culminating in a final showcase open to parents and guests. The theme for the camp will be Technology Meets the Arts and Dance

Using the National Dance Institute's award-winning teaching methodology, Arts in Action's Artistic Director, Alton Tisino, will engage the performer-participants in dance activities that foster teamwork, challenge their minds, strengthen their bodies and nurture self-esteem. 

The performer-participants will be children and youth from ages 9-13. Arts in Action's artistic team will conduct classes and rehearsals from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, for four days, between July 5th - July 8th, 2016, amounting to 24 hours of hands-on learning and ensemble experience for the children. 

Classes will include an experienced musical accompanist and two experienced dance instructors, who will assist, under the supervision and direction of Alton Tisino, in preparation for the four-day program as well as in preparation for the final showcase.
