At SVST, we hope to inspire artistic excellence in the youth of our community in a professional environment. They are the future! Instructors will be preparing students to step into their perspective career field with the appropriate resources, fundamental tools, and decision making abilities to continue their interests and passions on their own during the school year. Each individual student will receive training in specific technical skills to set them above the bar in a competitive field. Through routine practice of physical and mental discipline, they will develop an awareness as they learn from each others’ strengths and weaknesses while setting aside differences and learning by example to come together to achieve a common goal.
To enrich, entertain and serve our community in a safe, professional environment.
Youth entering third through eight grade are welcome to participate in our program. Class sizes are limited to 16-18 students.
Set making is included with the camp prices! Students will paint and create their own set and props for the production they are in.
*Summer Camp Performance open to family and friends weekly at 1:00 P.M. on Friday.
For the duration of each Course - both Morning and Afternoon - students will have the opportunity to come together to work on sets and properties for the Friday friends and family performances. Final presentations are at 10:30 A.M. for morning students and 2:30 P.M. for afternoon students.
As SVST Educators we care for, take risks, and dream with our students while expecting artistic excellence as a habit, not a moment.
