Child’s Play NY presents The Jungle Book
For our first week of Spring Camp, Child’s Play NY will lead our children in putting on a creative rendition of The Jungle Book.The session introduces children to the world of the Broadway musical. Children “play” with the story and characters from the Rudyard Kipling book and other jungle stories and work on songs from the classic that are appropriate for developing voices and exciting to perform. Creative movement combined with choreography gives the students an artistic physical outlet. Theater games and artwork surrounding Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera and his crew, support the children’s understanding of how to create a character. The class will culminate in a performance of our character-driven improvisations, songs and dances.
Brooklyn Beanstalk Circus
For our second week of camp, Brooklyn Beanstalk circus instructors will lead children in creating a mini-circus. While exploring acrobatics, physical comedy and circus manipulatives, your child will develop self confidence and how to work in a team—all while having a blast. No previous circus arts experience necessary! Highlights of the program include team building acting games, gymnastic and acrobatic balance, juggling, spinning plates, physical comedy and clowning.
