Cole Creative Camp is an immersive multi-performing arts exploration of hip hop, Brazilian & contemporary dance, music, capoeira martial arts, live drumming, arts & crafts.
Campers learn foundation moves and histories of multiple street dance styles from around the world, including the Bay Area. Each kid develops his or her unique expressions and skills musically, kinesthetically, athletically, emotionally and intellectually. We make sure to meet each individual at their level and challenge him or her in new creative directions and abilities. At Cole Creativity Camp students bring imaginative ideas into tangible, shareable form both in live performance and digital space.
Each camper receives personalized attention to guide their creativity in ways that are intuitive to him or her and we reinforce that there aren't any right or wrongs in expressing oneself through art, but rather a diverse spectrum of expression and abilities. Imagination is a tool of infinite possibilities that will help them excel in anything they pursue in life along with the mental and physical technique to make manifest.
