Join the Club! Mr. D’s Music Club is growing!
Who are we?
We are an award winning, non-traditional visual and performing arts Summer Camp and After School Vocal Program for boys and girls of all abilities ages 8-13.
Described as “a hip, vibrant, well grounded, super fun place for kids to explore the world of the performing arts”. We are currently seeking youthful, not necessarily young, talented, energetic and creative people to join the “Club”.
What is non-traditional Summer Camp? We’re more likely to be dancing hip hop and singing a Beck tune than we are to be sitting around the camp fire singing songs from Frozen! We sing, we dance, we make art, do yoga and more and put on an amazing show at the end of each week (Camp) or Session (After School). We all work really hard with a major emphasis on fun.
