More about Mr. D's Summer Camps

Summer camp at Mr. D’s Music Club is all about music, art, dance, fun and friends. Not to mention, singing, dancing, laughing, trying new things, performing, confidence building and all around silliness. We pride ourselves in offering your children a stellar camp experience in the performing arts.


Our philosophy embraces pop music across the decades because: 1. Children can relate to it on an emotional level,  2. We celebrate music, singing and dancing as true forms of expression. 3. We gently introduce music from different genres (classical, electronic, jazz, world music, etc)  with the hope that this becomes a gateway for your child to explore the vast musical universe.


Each camp has its own unique, fun, and sometimes quirky, theme. The themes are intended to set the tone of the week, but from there anything goes. The music selection is loosely based around those themes and the songs are varied, often unusual and always have soul.


Art, singing and dance is intermixed each day and no two days are alike:


Music:   We don’t always know which songs the kids will really enjoy singing, so we typically start out with more than we need and work our way through to the final cut. It’s fun to explore the songs with the kids, break them down, practice and then really start to feel the emotions the songs evoke as we progress through the week.


Dance:   Professional choreographers design and teach interactive dance routines to the kids centered around the week’s theme. Dance styles include hip hop, modern, jazz, salsa, tribal, etc.


Art:   Throughout the week the kids work on several art projects that relate to the camp’s theme. As the projects come to completion they are displayed around the room to showcase during our final performance. Set design is also a component of our art curriculum.


Performance:  At the end of each camp we celebrate with a final performance designed, produced and performed by the kids. Family and friends are encouraged to attend so they can see all the hard work of the kids.

The kids are SUPER busy throughout the day and will come home tired, but very happy. They are building something  – together – for you. We hope you will join us and see what all the fuss is about.
