Hi Moana Jr. campers and families,


The campers closed out Week 1 incredibly strong today! This morning, they staged and learned choreography for the end of the show. This means they've finished the entire script and will be able to work on fixing and cleaning any spots they struggle with.


During the afternoon, they ran the entire show from start to finish with as little pauses as possible. They already look great and the directing team can't wait to see how the show continues to improve through the end of Week 2!


Below, in addition to choreography videos, we have attached vocal tracks and accompaniment tracks to help the cast practice their vocals over the weekend.


Our staff also wants to remind all parents not to park and get out of their cars or have students walk to them while parked during drop off. That is a big safety issue and we want to be as cautious as possible with our campers.


We hope you all have a restful weekend and we can't wait to see you Monday!


Camp Dates and Times:


Monday, July 19th - Friday, July 23rd from 9 am - 4 pm


PERFORMANCE: Sunday, July 25th at 3 pm

MONDAY IS TWIN DAY! Coordinate outfits with your friend!

OFF BOOK DATE

Ms. Ann has asked that the entire cast is off book no later than this Monday 7/19. This means they will need to know their lines and all vocals along with choreography. Please encourage your students to practice so that they're ready for their off book date.

Reminders

1. PICKUP TIME - Pickup starts promptly at 3:45. We ask that parents arrive as close to that time as possible so students aren't left to sit with our staff past camp's close


2. DROP OFF - When dropping off your students for the day, please pull all the way up. We ask that you don't park and get out of your cars to bring your students in the building, or allow your student to walk across the parking lot to arrive every day. It can be a safety issue and we don't have staff designated to watch traffic and crossing lanes for students.


3. JAZZ SHOES - If students don't already have their jazz shoes, they need to have them at the very latest by the start of camp this coming Monday. Please order them if you haven't yet!


4. KNEE PADS - Campers in the Ocean ensemble have multiple moments during the show in which they have to spend extended periods on their knees. If they would like, they are welcome to bring in knee pads for rehearsals for a little more comfort.


5. DRESS CODE - Please keep in mind the dress code when getting ready for camp each day. We want the campers to be comfortable, but not in any clothing that they may need to continually adjust as it can distract/limit them and their movement.


6. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!!!!!

COMMUNICATION PAGE

Our Communication page is an awesome resource for you! Not only will it inform you about who to direct your questions to over the next two weeks, but it will also help you track all of the information. Each day of camp, we will be sending you an email and placing it on the communication page. Check it out here!

Email Communication Always Preferred

Mr. CJ is in Mississippi in a residency for theatre education the first week of camp. As a result, email is ALWAYS the preferred method of communication. He will be able to forward your emails quickly to the appropriate staff members.

WHAT TO BRING

Clear Bins



CLEAR BINS

We request that all students bring their materials in a clear bin. No book bags. This allows us to help students quickly and efficiently find materials. Additionally, the clear bin is a great way for students to store things in a tidy way. Would you please not bring book bags to the program? We strongly recommend a large enough bin to fit a folder, a lunch box, shoes, make-up, and misc. Items.


Here is the Link we are recommending from Amazon.

LUNCHES

Please be sure to pack lunches. Microwaves will not be available. Lunches will be served between 12 and 1. If a student forgets to bring a lunch, please bring it to the school and leave it with the Director of Health and Safety, Ms. Katie Rivers.


Please steer clear of anything with nuts, as we have a few students with severe nut allergies.
