Students in grades 4-8 were offered a special opportunity to experience life in the limelight during the recent CAPA Performing Arts Camp, put on by students and staff in the Livonia Public Schools’ Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) program.

The daylong workshop included exploration in CAPA’s three performing arts strands: theater, dance and vocal music. This year, the camp was held at Madonna University, while Churchill High School’s Performing Arts Center is being rebuilt.

CAPA Camp offered 130 registered students hands-on experience and instruction from 50 CAPA students who served as mentors, and from three CAPA staff members. The day concluded with a final show, starring all of the camp participants.

“It was a beautiful day of learning, fun and community, while sharing our love for the arts,” said CAPA Director Angie Hillman.

The audition-only CAPA program is included in the current LPS Limited Schools of Choice program and will have five open seats next school year for incoming freshmen who live outside of Livonia Public Schools. The application window is now open and information can be found under the Parents tab at livoniapublicschools.org or by clicking on the “Limited Schools of Choice” article in the front page news reel. The application window closes at 4 p.m. on March 29.
