Performing Arts Workshops
100 CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE
Camps in: Pasadena, Chatsworth, Studio City, West LA, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, and El Segundo.
Performing Arts Workshops, VOTED 2010's BEST SUMMER CAMP in LA PARENT MAGAZINE, is pleased to announce that through a generous donation, twenty scholarships at each of our Summer Camp locations are now available.
These special scholarships have been made available for us to give as a matching fund. Our donor, whose wish is to help local children experience the arts this summer, will sponsor half the tuition for up to 20 children at each camp. Each matching scholarship provides $245 dollars of the tuition for MUSICAL THEATER CAMP when the parent matches the remaining $245.It is our donor's request that the scholarships have no conditions or prerequisites. We are issuing these scholarships immediately. To receive one of these scholarships please call us at (310) 827-8827 and mention the "matching fund scholarships." For more information about PAW visit www.PerformingArtsWorkshops.com.
This camp is unique in that it is a small, homegrown start up with lots of heart, and the only Spanish language immersion program in the area for five to ten year olds.
Summer is a terrific time to quench the thirst that parents have for their child to experience something new and different while gaining skills that will last a lifetime. We offer Spanish language instruction as a course of engaging in the activities that all kids love (please see pdf attached and website.)
Better yet we will have options for continuing the progress during the school year as afterschool programs. Add to this the option (lowest tutoring rates in the area) for group or individual tutoring in English Lang Art and Math in the relaxed comfortable environment of our camp and you have got the perfect mix for the summer doldrums. So the price is right (only $250 for M-F , 9-4pm) and the time is now. We are offering free trial classes this month!

My husband and I also Produce/Direct such films as: NOTORIOUS, FASTER, BARBERSHOP, ROLLBOUNCE, SOULFOOD, MEN OF HONOR and a few more. We're currently looking for investors for a new project if you have money to spare, lol :-). Now that Chase is in the safe hands of Valley View, I'm ready to pop up on your screens again somewhere. ;-)
