President’s Week Arts Program (PWAP):
Monday, Feb. 20 – Friday, Feb. 24, 2017

Spring Break Arts Program (SBAP):
Monday, Apr. 10- Friday, Apr. 14, 2017

Families can register by day or for the full week and are assigned to one of two groups: the Nano BAXers (Kindergarten to 2nd grade) and the Mega/Giga BAXers (2nd grade to 5th grade). Each group has up to 30 children and is staffed by one Group Leader, one Senior Counselor, and two Junior Counselors.

Each day the Nano BAXers and Mega/Giga BAXers engage in daily exploratory themes through various arts specialties. Each morning, there is a workshop facilitated by a guest performing arts specialist. During the afternoon, there is a second workshop facilitated by a visual arts specialist, followed by an informal community share between the groups.

About PWAP and SBAP Art Specialties

VISUAL ARTYoung artists use their imaginations to explore various arts media projects that go beyond ordinary arts-and-crafts, creating a whirlwind of individual and group paintings, sculptures, collages, and drawings that engage different themes and reflect their view of the world.
THEATERBAX theater workshops encourage dynamic theater artists through visceral experiences engaging voices, bodies, and imaginations. Young actors will cultivate technical skills while working collaboratively through improvisational theater games and embodied storytelling.
DANCEIn lively and action packed dance sessions, young movers use their bodies and imaginations to create their own movement and explore a variety of dance traditions that include modern, hip hop, ballet, acro, and more.
TUMBLINGTumbling at BAX integrates movement from yoga, modern dance, gymnastics, and partner acrobatics to explore creative expression through inverted movement. Tumblers learn fundamental tumbling skills that help to increase their flexibility, balance, and awareness of space, shape and form.
CIRCUSDrawing on contemporary circus traditions, young artists will practice the art of storytelling through physical theater, partner acrobatics, animating objects, and character and caricature exploration. Participants work independently and collaboratively to establish their own fun and unique circus performance style.
