Arts enthusiasts of all ages and abilities are invited to register now for summer 2019 music, dance and theatre arts programs offered through CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement.
CCM Prep provides enjoyable and accessible arts opportunities within a highly creative environment that educate and inspire the whole student. Courses are taught by CCM Prep and collegiate faculty members and guest artists.
Summer programs include “Animal Crackers” or “Join the Circus” theatre arts and music workshops for young performers in preschool and elementary school. Middle and high school students can start summer on a high note by joining the “Summer Band Experience,” hone their skills in dance classes or become a “triple threat” musical theatre star at “Camp Bravo.”
Adults can also enjoy summer arts experiences in the New Horizons Orchestra or by participating in CCM Prep’s first intergenerational residential camp. “CCM Grand” is open to students and their grandparents who want to share and make new memories while experiencing dorm life at UC’s Marian Spencer Hall.
