Teaching Performance Arts to Kids

intensive.jpg

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.
