This summer holiday Royal & Derngate’s Creative Projects team have devised two first-rate week-long Summer Schools jammed packed with fast-paced fun for young people of all ages.
Designed specifically for ages 14 and above, Parkour Summer School – The Art Of Moving focuses on the exciting and physically challenging world of free-running. From the opening scenes of James Bond to the characters of Channel 4’s Misfits, free-running has become a spectacular physical artform. With a team of movement specialists, film makers and music producers the workshop will develop the skills of Parkour and participants will be given the opportunity to capture their moves on film, edit and create a short movie clip and customise a musical soundtrack.
Parkour Summer School is a weeklong workshop from Monday 25 to Friday 29 July. Places are priced at £125 per participant and can be booked by calling Box Office on 01604 624811.
Following on from the success of last year’s summer workshop, the new and improved Musical Mash-Up returns. Working with theatre professionals the participants will combine some of the best theatre songs with contemporary pop to create a final day performance like no other in this all-singing, all-dancing summer school.
Designed for ages 8-14 this mind-blowing musical fun is suitable for both beginners and experienced performers. Musical Mash-Up: Remixed begins Monday 1 and runs until Friday 5 August. Places are priced at £125 per participant and can be booked by calling Box Office on 01604 624811.
