OK, so you’re not like Will and Jada Smith, whose bona fide talents are able to open doors for their offspring to sing, dance, act or play music. No matter. Potential Oscar, Grammy or Tony winners can start developing their talents right here at home.
A variety of local performing arts organizations could help your child grow out of two left feet (or two left thumbs) into a credible artist. Although some performing arts groups that give lessons take a breather in the summer — too many students go on vacation, said one — others provide opportunities for current students.
But there are several institutions that continue lessons all summer long for children, in the form of Performing Arts Summer Camps. These programs are generally promoted as “a good time to advance children’s skills”. Some providers offer arts training programs that take advantage of summer hours.
Review your options online and select the programs that best suits your or your children’s needs when it comes to music, drama and theater education.
