Whether your child’s creativity and talents are focused in one area of the arts or their passion for performing, creating and imagining cannot be contained, Usdan allows each camper to curate a program that is right for them. From a variety of classes in music, dance, theater, creative writing and visual arts, children choose a two- period major, a one-period elective and a recreational activity to fill their days at the beautiful Wheatley Heights, New York, campus (daily buses run from four of the five boroughs). Performing-arts–related classes appeal to both traditionalists and contemporary performers, with options that include ballet or hip-hop for dancers; musical theater and game-heavy actor’s craft for thespians; and classes that focus on specific instruments as well as jazz ensemble, orchestra and choral singing for the musically inclined. For kids who want to work with their hands, classes in metalworking, archery, organic gardening and LEGO design keep their bodies and minds occupied. Each session culminates in a showcase of the campers’ growth. Ages 4–18.
