Our camps run in June and July 2023, Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, with both full-day and half-day options to fit your family’s schedule.  

At Stage West, your kids will have the chance to learn from some of the finest teaching artists in the DFW area. With a wide range of skills to explore, including acting, improv, dancing, singing, playwriting, directing, circus skills, and more, there’s no limit to the possibilities! Whether your child is a seasoned performer or new to the stage, we create an environment that is exciting, inspiring, and supportive.

But let’s talk about what theatre camps can do for kids, beyond simply providing a fun summer activity. They offer a wealth of benefits, from building self-confidence and creativity to enhancing social skills and concentration. Through theatre classes, children can develop critical life skills, such as public speaking, communication, and teamwork, while also exploring their imagination and personal expression in a secure and nurturing environment.
