African Theatre Summer Camp for children to hold in Lagos from August 3 – 31, 2016.
Vuvuzela Communications Limited, owners of Nowchild Blog has flagged off a special summer camp programme for Nigerian children. The African Theatre Camp is designed to be an annual Summer Camp for Children and aimed at giving children opportunity to appreciate African Theatre & Creative Arts – acting, dance, music, creative writing/Literacy, storytelling, mime, pantomime, etc. The ultimate goal is to help the children/campers develop good sense of worth, improve their self confidence/esteem, hone up their communication and leadership skills and get thoroughly groomed in relevant values and etiquette.
According to Ike Ezugwu, the CEO of Vuvuzela Communications Limited, the Camp is non-residential as there is no dormitory housing available for campers. The company accepts only children who live within the venues or who have made prior arrangements with family or friends on accommodation/housing. There are two centers presently – one at Okota Road and the other at Ajah, Lagos.
African Theatre Camp is billed to run Monday – Friday between 10a.m. and 1p.m. from August 3rd to August 31st, 2016 at designated centres. It is open to all children within the age brackets 6 -10 years and 11 – 17 years. No audition for admission is required.
The Camp facilitators are renowned professionals and practitioners in their various fields: O’Dyke Nzewi (African music and dance); Dozie Odunze & Dogoh-Akowe Alaba (acting); Ike Ezugwu (communication and etiquette) and Uche Udoji (creative writing and literacy). Parents are advised to do early enrollment to ensure admission as there are limited spaces with children admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
