From Monday June 13th through Wednesday June 15th, the Creative Arts Academy hosted its first ever Summer Workshop titled “On Stage!” Done in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of the Mississippi Valley and hosted at their Teen Center in Moline, Club members and other students participated in dance classes, a design and modeling experience, and theatre opportunities. This workshop was done in collaboration with Rock Island hip hop duo Re-fl3x, salsa dance instructors from Arthur Murray in Davenport, and local theatre professionals. Students also created costumes, hair, and make-up designs for a fashion show, and participated in theatre games and a short modernized production of Romeo and Juliet as part of the workshops. This fun and engaging workshop was made possible by an Arts $ grant from Quad City Arts.
