Teaching Performance Arts to Kids
Teaching Performance Arts to Kids

Listen
AIR DATE: June 3, 2011

Matthew Banks is a Blue Man with the Blue Man Group.  Given all the performers on the Strip, he and ballet dancer Naomi Stikeman, wondered why there weren't more classes teaching kids about performance.  They decided to start the Performing Arts Summer Intensive - a summer camp teaching kids everything from drumming to hip-hop.  We talk to the Blue Man, the ballet dancer, and a "Chicago" musical performer on what they can teach the next generation.

    Sounds interesting, but who can affort that much money. I don't even make this muc a week, I have 3 kids and my hubby is only a AF soldier. Isn't there anything affortable fo families, I'm not rich and I can't pay a fortune! My daughter loves arts and she's a fast learner, she got a couple ating classes, that were not that expensive.
