Please remember to pack healthy snacks, water bottles and a healthy lunch (for those with us all day)

  • Always avoid sugary drinks & processed foods as they will not give you the proper nutrition or energy you need for your day!
  • Don’t forget your cutlery if you are bringing food that needs a spoon or fork.
  • Please avoid bringing nuts to the school as there are students and staff with severe nut allergies.
  • We have filtered water stations at each studio, a water-bottle filling station, two fridges, and a microwave.

  • Please view our dress codes  ( to the bottom of that page for summer session information).
  • Musicals Camps:
    • Please wear comfortable, but not-too-baggy clothing so teachers can properly see movement and breathing.
