Ignite Performing Arts Camp

“From a tiny spark may burst a mighty flame” – Dante

At Ignite Performing Arts Camp, we believe that your child deserves a life that moves them. Enter Ignite Performing Arts Camp. This full-on, 3-day intensive school holiday workshop is all about ‘artistic motion’, helping your child to explore the depths of their innate talent while fanning the embers of their creative potential.

Dance. Drama. Acrobatics. Art. Our four-pronged approach aims to cultivate your child’s niche, while also exposing them to a diverse range of imaginative activities. From building stamina in a high-energy hip-hop jam to producing a colourful rendition of ‘Starry Night’ on canvas, the sky really is the limit!

And it doesn’t stop there! At the end of 3 jam-packed, fun-filled ‘rehearsal’ days, our talented stage troupers (aged 6 – 12 inclusive), with the help of expert instructors, will take to the grand stand to flaunt their newly acquired skills in a mini-showcase, comprised of a spotlight performance and visual arts exhibition.

Dance. Drama. Acrobatics. Art.

Please note: Our Ignite Performing Arts Camps are designed as a comprehensive 3-day program. While we do our best to ensure students who are attending our 1 & 2 day options receive a variety of class styles & possibly their favourite genre, this isn’t always possible as the camp is scheduled with a 3 day attendance in mind. Only students who attend the 3 day program will be included in the “mini-showcase” at the end of the camp to ensure all students are confident and have adequate time to learn routines & positions.
