(West Palm Beach, FL) – The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts has announced its 2020 summer programming schedule, with a variety of exciting options for students ages 9-21.
ArtsCamp will be held June 1-19. ArtsCamp is an innovative, three-week summer camp that provides 70 young artists with a working knowledge of all the intricacies involved in making a show a reality. The program offers an intensive performing arts approach that focuses on dramatic composition and performance for students ages 9-11. No audition is required.
Under the guidance of seven professional teaching artists, campers will explore art, acting, dance, technical theater and vocal music which culminates in an ensemble piece that is produced by the young artists and performed for family and friends. For campers interested in the performing arts, this curriculum provides an opportunity to expand their abilities and learn new technical and performance skills.
The cost for ArtsCamp is $700. Classes are held Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Extended care is available. To apply, please visit Kravis.org/artscampapplication. For more information call 561-651-4339 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ArtsCamp is sponsored by Rita and Charles Bronfman; with support from Jane Beasley; Rick and Rosemary Johnston; and George T. and Ruth C. Laboda Foundation.
The Broadway Artists Intensive returns for its ninth year at the Kravis Center. The Broadway Artists Intensive is a three-week, advanced musical theater training program for ages 14-21 and will be held weekdays and Saturdays July 6-25. The faculty is comprised entirely of Broadway professionals from New York, offering the experience of more than 100 major productions on Broadway. Auditions for this program will be held on Sunday, April 5. Students unable to attend the auditions in person may also submit a video audition. Registration to audition is now open.
Created by Broadway professionals Jason Gillman, Jackie Bayne Gillman and Greg Graham, The Broadway Artists Intensive classes will be taught by an all-Broadway faculty, including special guest artists. Previous guest artists have included Tony Award-winning Director/Choreographer Jerry Mitchell, creator of Kinky Boots, the Best Musical of 2013, actor and choreographer John Rua of Hamilton, TV star and two-time Tony Award-winner Christian Borle of NBC’s Smash and Norm Lewis, who starred alongside John Legend in the NBC television special, Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert! In May of 2014, Lewis made history as The Phantom of the Opera’s first African-American Phantom on Broadway.

“The Broadway Artists Intensive programs and ArtsCamp provide campers and students with an array of activities and memorable experiences with new friends who share their passion for the arts,” said Tracy Butler, Director of Education for the Kravis Center. “The Kravis Center is thrilled to offer local and national students the opportunity to learn and train with Broadway professionals and world-renowned instructors.”
The Kravis Center is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach, FL. The Center’s mission is to enhance the quality of life in Palm Beach County by presenting a diverse schedule of national and international artists and companies of the highest quality, by offering comprehensive arts education programs – serving nearly 3 million students since its inception; by providing a Palm Beach County home for local and regional arts organizations to showcase their work; and by providing an economic catalyst and community leadership in West Palm Beach, supporting efforts to increase travel and tourism to Palm Beach County. To enhance and elevate the customer experience, the Center has embarked upon a $40 million capital project to support a campus redesign and facility expansion that will create a more accessible, comfortable and pedestrian-friendly venue for the community. Aptly named Kravis 2020: The Future is Now, this project is at the heart of the Kravis Center’s vision for the future.
