Young people can sing and dance their way through hits from the charts and shows or try out Rock / Bandaoke and get a chance to play or sing in a rock band
The summer camp will give young people the opportunity to try out lots of different music and dance activities like DJing or poetry slam. People of all abilities are welcome even if they’ve never tried the activities before.
There will even be lessons to learn the latest craze – the Ukulele, people can go from beginner to band member in one day.
Beginners can also get into carnival mood, creating upbeat rhythms on Steel Pans or Dhol Drums. Players of wind, brass and folk instruments will also find plenty to do.
