Every year at the end of the school year, Encore opens its doors for 10 weeks with an exciting music, dance, and visual arts summer camp welcoming children ages 4 to 13 years old. Kids are divided into groups based on their age, not their music or dance proficiency. We teach all groups the same classes tailored to their specific age group and all of our classes are taught by our professional teachers, the same ones who teach at our school during the school year.
From Monday through Thursday, our focus is on music appreciation lessons, acting, dancing and art classes! While the girls take flamenco/Spanish dance, modern and Cuban dance classes, the boys have ensemble, an energy-filled class where they explore the drums, piano, bass and electric guitar.
As if they don’t have enough fun during the week, Fridays we go on field trips! We have taken the kids to the movies at their request but we try to focus on cultural activities that complement what we are teaching them during the summer camp. We have gone on backstage tours of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. We have taken the kids to see theater performances at the Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre in Coral Gables. We have also gone on field trips to the Pérez Art Museum!
