AGES 7-9

My Life: The Musical         
This is your life; let’s make it a musical.
July 17th – 21st                 9:30am – 12:30pm

In this camp, students will work together with a teaching artist to create and perform their very own musical! In addition to developing ideas for an original script, students will learn standard songs and choreography that culminate in a presentation on the Bay Street Theater Mainstage on Friday for family and friends. Students will receive instruction in acting, singing, dance, and musical theater history; and they will also participate in creative theater games and improvisations that help to develop communication skills and encourage them to stretch their imaginative abilities.

A vocal coach, piano instructor and song writing advocate for students of all ages. She teaches privately here on the East End of Long Island, when she's not in the theatre. She is also a choreographer and dancer. She taught several styles of dance at the Dance Centre of the Hamptons. Kristen co-owned/directed two musical theatre companies, ACT Out East as well as East End Children’s Theatre company at the Vail Leavitt Music Hall where she produced several musicals. Kristen’s formal training in dance and voice began in Boston, where she grew up, as well as at the Broadway Dance Centre in Manhattan. She attended the prestigious colleges, The Boston Conservatory of Music as well as The Berklee School of Music. She inevitably decided to make the move out West to graduate from a buddhist based college, Naropa University in Boulder Colorado where she earned  a degree in Vocal Performance and Music Therapy.
