Bring TADA! Camps to Your Organization

Bring TADA!’s popular Camps to your school, camp, day care, community center or business! With programs across the metro area, TADA! delivers great musical theater programs for kids in your community. Families and friends love applauding their kids’ mini-musicals as much as the children love creating and performing them.

Similar to TADA!s on-site Week-long Camps, students rehearse and perform songs, choreography and scenes based on original TADA! shows and selections from Broadway over a five-day period (longer camps are also available). On the last day of the program, kids present their own mini-musical in a final performance for family and friends.

Personal and creative growth takes place in a structured and supportive environment. Ensemble methods are taught to encourage cooperation and positive, creative expression as kids develop their theatrical skills. Each camp has a unique theme and different musical numbers–depending on your program goals.

TADA! provides:

  • Two to three professional teaching artist/directors (Music Director, Choreographer & Director) with extensive experience in music, theater, dance and education
  • Songs, music, scripts and materials from one of TADA!’s original musicals
  • Our award-winning team-teaching and youth-centered approach

Past scripts have centered on topics as varied as immigration, teamwork, and tolerance. Students work on their writing and performance skills, and the use of musical numbers to promote fun, active learning. Program includes: two Teaching Artists (music director & director/choreographer). Up to 20 students per class. 2-hour and 1.5-hour sessions available.
  • Drama Workshops: These workshops focus on the skills of the non-musical theater actor.

The Museum explores the development of the greater New York Metropolitan region through the presentations of exhibitions, tours, educational programs, and workshops dealing with the cultural, social, and technological history of public transportation. Since it’s inception over a quarter century ago, the Museum, housed in a historic 1936 IND subway station in Brooklyn Heights, has grown in scope and popularity. As custodian and interpreter of the region’s extensive public transportation networks, the Museum strives to share, through its public programs, this rich and vibrant history with local, regional, and international audiences.

The New York Transit Museum’s galleries feature popular exhibits such as Steel, Stone, and Backbone, which recounts the tale of building New York City’s 100 year-old subway system, and many highly interactive exhibitions such as On The Streets, an in-depth look at New York City’s trolleys and buses. Also of interest are the museum’s age-appropriate education workshops and computer resource center.

The New York Transit Museum operates a gallery annex in Grand Central Terminal that presents changing exhibitions. The gallery annex is located just off the Main Concourse in the Shuttle Passage, next to the Station Master’s office. Please go to What’s New on this web site for information on the gallery annex’s current exhibition.

From its earliest days, the Wildlife Conservation Society has been a leader in animal well being. The flagship Bronx Zoo established its first veterinary department in 1901.
