Summer Camps

2020 VIRTUAL SUMMER THEATER CAMPS

Due to COVID-19 and the restrictions set, summer programming is tentative and we will contact registrants with any programming changes. 

We are excited to have Christina Docter, Artistic Director, as our Lead Summer Director. During this time of uncertainty, we have decided to switch our programming to online virtual classes.  We will be starting with 2- 45 minute online classes with 2 age groups.  Each week there will be a new class list. When you register, you will receive a Zoom meeting link a few days before the class starts.  Class size will be limited so that we can keep the integrity of our instruction.  If a class fills up, please email us at info@yaal.org and if there is enough interest we can open up another time slot.  All parents and students will be required to read and agree to our “YAAL VIRTUAL LEARNING AGREEMENT” located on here on our policies page.
