YADA SUMMER CAMP!

YADA’s summer program is a super fun experience that is totally different from our normal school year schedule. Since kids are out of school over the summer, we offer all day camps that center around a different show.  YADA offers two week camps and one week camps, plus half day camps for YADA TOTS. 

Please take a moment to review the summer camp information below.  If you have any questions, please contact our YADA staff by clicking HERE or call us at 323-655-9232.  We'd be happy to help you!

Workshops

For our two week camps, once a day, each cast will have a workshop that is unrelated to their rehearsals. The workshops are a chance for the kids to unwind, have fun, and learn something new! Some examples of past workshops include Cartoon Drawing, Improv, Jewelry Making, Voice, Songwriting, Yoga, Shakespeare, Karaoke, Photography, Vision Boards, Acting a Song, and Dance. The workshops are taught by a combination of YADA Directors and outside professionals.

Shows

After students have rehearsed for their shows, they will perform at the end of their camp.  These spectacular shows are like watching a mini-Broadway production.  Each camper is supplied a full costume, make-up, body mic, hair/wig and performs on a fully designed set with lights and props.  If they are signed up for a two week camp, depending on what cast they enroll in, they will perform on one of the following: 

  • Thursday at 5:00pm & 7:00pm
  • Friday at 5:00pm & 7:00pm
  • Saturday at 11:00am & 1:00pm or Saturday at 5:00pm & 7:00pm
  • Sunday at 11:00am & 1:00pm  or Sunday at 5:00pm & 7:00pm
