Riley's drama camp

Riley attended drama camp last week, and on Friday they did a show for the parents. I was especially pleased with this camp, because it was taught by college students who are majoring in drama! Riley is now determined to be a "Triple Threat" (someone who can act, sing, AND dance)! This camp was for 5 days, 3.5 hours per day, and the kids were rising 1-6th graders.

First they all did a song, "Do-Re-Mi" from the Sound of Music!
After the singing, the teacher played some of the games that she had done with the girls all week. These games were used to teach the children how to improvise, project their voices, and mime. It was AMAZING!

After the games were over, there were 2 drama performances. Riley had won the part of "narrator" for her play. She was extremely excited, because that was the part she wanted! She had many lines to memorize, and we didn't get the script until Thursday night! She worked so hard Thursday night to have her lines memorized by Friday morning! Here is a picture of her... sorry her eyes are closed!
Here is a picture of the stage during Riley's group's play. Riley was on the left as narrator.
After the plays were over, it was time for the dancing. The girls did a dance to "All For One" from High School Musical 2! I'm sure you can imagine that Riley was THRILLED with that choice!
Here is a shot of the stage at the end of the dance! It was a great group of girls, and Riley had a wonderful week!
Now she has a couple of weeks off before it's time for Art Camp! :)
