Dear VANATS teachers,
I am sure you remember our wonderful Music Theatre clinician from our Spring Adjudications, Damian Perkins. I am excited to tell you all that he is coming back to Richmond this summer to do one of his Broadway Master Clinic Camps! This will be an INTENSIVE 8 hour a day for 3 days experience that will greatly benefit your musical theatre singers/performers. He will keep the camp size small to have plenty of one-on-one-time with each performer. This session will be held in Richmond, at Tabernacle Baptist Church, in the Fan District, on Meadow and Grove Ave. The dates we are planning are June 22-24, a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. IF you are interested, but cannot do those dates, let me know what dates work for you, and if there are enough to be flexible with the dates, we’ll try. If you have questions, please email Damian (firstname.lastname@example.org), or if I can answer Richmond related questions, email me at email@example.com.
We’re looking at a flexible age group for this – Adults, college students, high school students, and even mature middle schoolers, BUT it will be first-reserved/paid to be on the list, and this will be an elite, small group of performers, so you will have a true, intensive camp experience. Please note, the camp fee does not include lodging or food, not that you’d need lodging in this central to Virginia location, but if you want to make a vacation of it, there are plenty of hotels nearby.
I hope you have some students who will be able to take advantage of the wealth of experience, skills, and motivational energy Damian offers. He was wonderful in our Master Classes, but that was just a tiny sample of what he can do with your performers in an extended time period. I’m looking forward to helping with this, and I’m very excited to offer this to my students!
PLEASE forward this email to your students and have them fill out the registration and email it to Damian, either the text in the body of the email or the attached word doc.
