Dance and visual art join forces in this unique collaboration between two of South Bend’s cultural gems: Southold Dance Theater and the South Bend Museum of Art. Join us as we investigate the connections between movement and art-making. Campers will learn the fundamentals of dance and action-art. We will be exploring the fun ways of moving while making art with everyday objects like pool noodles, panty hose, and toy cars. The week will be filled with surprises and concludes with an informal mini-performance and art exhibit for family and friends.
**This camp takes place at Southold Dance Theater each day except Thursday, when camp will be held at the South Bend Museum of Art!
