Gateway Dance Theatre's sm.ART camp June10 13, 2013
sm.ART camp, GDT’s popular Arts and Academics camp with youth which is held annually in spring and summer, offers students an exciting opportunity to explore the world through myriad art forms — such as dance, music, painting, poetry, drama, and movement –and serves as a comprehensive learning experience. Students at the 5-day sm.ART Camp, June 10-14, get a global education even as the camp brings out their inner artist, strengthens their self-esteem and inspires personal reflection. We believe that Arts is a universal language, and encourage new immigrants to be part of this camp.
The program’s instructors have years of diverse expertise and experiences, so students learn from the best — and in an atmosphere that is fun and memorable. Culmination with an exhibition showcase Friday June 14 1:30pm-3:30pm.
