High School Musical...the Camp!

This summer G has been doing a little "Musical Theatre Camp" that is taught in her friends neighborhood. I can't tell you how absolutely ADORABLE this camp has been. A cute teenage girl has put together these camps where she teaches the girls the songs and choreography as well as has them decorate folders with the theme for each week and has printed off sheets with the music and their parts highlighted as well as pictures that they color!
The first week was "Annie". The girls did "It's a Hardknock Life" and "Tomorrow". I cannot tell you how much it warmed my heart to see G walking around the house rehearsing her parts and her little solo. For one week they worked on these and then on Friday we would go to the performance. For "Annie" she asked that the girls come dressed as orphans which was hilarious! My friend Jen go the excellent idea to smudge G and Aud's face with black makeup to make them look like disheveled orphans which added to the whole thing!
The second week the theme was "Wizard of Oz"/"Wicked" where they sang the song "Popular" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". Okay now I have to say that I wanted to bawl watching my little one up there belting out "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"....just tore at my heartstrings! And the choreopgraphy to "Popular" was amazing! The thought that Sara put into each number was amazing.
The final week last week was.....drumroll please....."HIGHSCHOOL MUSICAL" the sensation that is sweeping the nation!!
The girls sang "What I've Been Looking For" and "Breaking Free". All week long I was bopping out to "What I've Been Looking For", I even was doing a pretty mean imitation of Sharpay and Ryans dance moves from the movie that would make Grace burst out in giggles!
They were all supposed to dress in red, white and gold...the Highschool colors from the movie and when I saw G in red I wondered why I didn't buy it for her more often!
Tonight I took G on a little mommy daughter date night and we talked about the musical theatre camp. I would have NEVER done something like that as a kid, I remember always being nervous of having to stand up in front of a crowd. I asked her how she felt about it and she shrugged and said "It's great! I just get up there and do it." Yes she does. I'm so proud of her and a big shout out to Jen for hooking us up with such a great summer activity!!
