Performing Arts Program
The Hardy Center Performing Arts Program is designed to allow children to positively express themselves in the areas of dance, drama, and vocal arts.
Our dance program teaches children creative movement and promotes self-esteem, discipline, confidence and teamwork as each new dance is learned and performed.
The drama program allow the children to express themselves through acting out auditioned and assigned parts in both skits and plays themed after stories learned in the camp’s Bible class and/or parts in certain songs that are coordinated with the dance program.
The vocal arts program allows children to learn songs with harmony to sing as a small group (choir) as well as solo parts. Songs are coordinated with the drama and dance departments to present an overall performing arts program theme for the summer.
Children are able to “show off” their talents midway through the summer when we prepare a special program for the children to perform in front of staff, parents, and other children who attend the camp.
The creative arts department contributes their talents by helping create background scenery for our stage area.
The children who participate in the performing arts program develop character and spirituality and have a fun time working hard as a team to put together a program they are proud to take a personal part in.
