Girls Thrive **NOTE: Venue changed to the Salvage Vanguard Theater!
THIS EVENT HAS MOVED TO SALVAGE VANGUARD THEATER.2803 Manor Rd, Austin, TX 78722
Girls Thrive is a theatre program for girls focused on creativity and self-empowerment for girls from 1st - 6th grade, rising. This one-week program introduces girls to elements of art, dance, music and theatre in a collaborative environment that encourages self-expression and supporting one another. Campers will get to sing, act, write, create, and be mentored by 15 female artists in various disciplines while working together towards a performance at the end of the week.
Our staff of talented and accomplished female mentors will provide a framework for campers to engage in an active dialogue about gender expectations and stereotypes, and ultimately to refashion familiar fairy tales in ways that showcase girl-positive messages. Each camper is encouraged to explore topics that are important to her, while also working as part of a group. Girls will emerge from the program with new tools to foster a positive sense of ability and accomplishment, and increased ability to support and work with their peers and classmates.
Campers will share their weeks' work on the Friday of camp at 3 p.m. in the Scottish Rite Theater. This event will be free to family, friends, and members of the community.
Who can apply: All girls 1st- 6th grade, rising. No prior theater experience necessary.
