Capitol Civic Centre

2011-12 Capitol Arts Academy

The Capitol Arts Academy is a vision that provides ongoing opportunities for area youth interested in exercising their artistic muscle in the performing discipline they enjoy.

A select few may become performers. Some will continue their musical education throughout their life for sheer enjoyment. Many will develop a life-long passion and appreciation of the performing arts. All will gain valuable experience in decision-making and listening through improv and dialogue. Their poise and confidence will grow as they learn to move and speak to an audience and hone their skills of concentration and communication as they practice lines of a play, poem, or song while delivering lines or verses with proper tone and appropriate emotion.

The Capitol Arts Academy continues to evolve: The Capitol Summer Theatre Arts Camp completed its fourth year of operation in the summer of 2011 and Capitol Kids Choir is in its third year of operation. Plans are underway for the Academy to become even more diverse and offer more opportunity for area youth in the performing arts in the future.
