Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Your Destiny Awaits

Follow Theatrical Dreams to AWP Performing Arts Camp

And now, for something completely different, fun, creative and life changing. Are you and your children tired of the same old ho-hum summer camps? Atlanta Workshop Players invites you to have an unbelievably artistic good time at Destiny Performing Arts Camp this summer. 2009 marks “Destiny’s” 28th year of providing an inspiring dramatic experience in which campers with a variety of talent levels are accepted, valued and nurtured. Participants between the ages of 6 and 18 are invited to spend an unforgettable time of performing, friendship and fun this summer at this unique camp produced by the dynamic Atlanta Workshop Players.

This performing arts camp goes way beyond acting! AWP’s Summer Camp curriculum pumps up the fun quotient with many types of dance, improvisational comedy, acrobatics, circus arts, video projects, special FX makeup, TV/film, stage combat and other wildly explosive shenanigans. Students come from all corners of the globe to partake in the “Destiny” experience, sharing their talents and being mentored by internationally known master instructors. Advanced performers will have the opportunity to audition for Top Agents and Casting Directors.

The camp is focused on enriching children’s lives through the medium of the performing arts. Experienced counselors spend quality time instructing and encouraging the children with their positive, inclusive attitudes. As instructors focus on nurturing and inspiring children to artistically express themselves, the students blossom and gain confidence in everyday life as well as onstage. Nationally known film, television, and Broadway personalities will instruct and perform with our campers.

“Destiny” is one of the many programs offered by the Atlanta Workshop Players. The foundation of The Atlanta Workshop Players is the aspiration to cultivate talent in a supportive, non-competitive environment. The curriculum is designed to challenge performers to reach their potential in a nurturing ambience that infuses everyone with optimism. An atmosphere of contagious fun ensures that the children feel accepted, included, and empowered by their participation in the amazing energy of the world of performing arts. Students also learn cooperation and other important life skills.

Lynn’s dynamic energy also allows her to be an acting coach, an accomplished talent manager with many successes to her credit, and a writer/producer of 23 educational musicals on social issues. “The greatest successes at Destiny are not even related to performing success”, declares Stallings. “Witnessing, first-hand, the kids whose confidence has soared, the life-long friends that were made and the sharing of creativity are the best benefits. Destiny inspires children to follow their dreams with their priorities and self-image intact.”
