Summer Camps

2022 Summer Offerings

We are elated to be offering so many incredible camps at our downtown locations.


  • AAT Studio - Washingtin Street
  • London Nelson Community Park
  • New Street Garden

In all of our Summer Camps - students will focus on learning proper voice and dance techniques while exploring the various song and dance styles used in Broadway shows, movies, and the music industry.

Our camps include a proper physical warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions, and combinations. In addition, students learn vocal warm ups and exercises that strengthen projection, instill confidence, and gain control and improve the quality of sound production. Acting skills are also honed with games, and learning performing skills that help the student connect with the audience, be expressive, tell a story, and overcome stage fright.

Most camps are offered as 1-week long (half & full-day), and of course our 3-week long "Theater in the Park" production camps.

AAT Summer Camp

Theater in the Park (3-weeks each)

Three incredible opportunities for young performers to acquire more skills, practice auditioning and to hone all those skills. With a longer duration to put them into practice, this collaboration and supportive program truly enriches everyone who walks through our doors. Culminating in a weekend of performances for the public. This summer we will be performing outside adhering to the CDC guidelines and to still enable our community to cherish live theater.
