Item Description

What are you doing the first week of summer break? Join BAX the week of June 29-July 2nd to kick of your child's summer vacation.

You are bidding on (1) week of BAX's Summer Arts Program the week of June 29-July 2, 2015 (Monday-Thursday) for students entering Kindergarten through 6th grade.

Drawing on BAX’s year-round education programs, our Summer Arts Program provides expert instruction in a range of specialties, including dance, tumbling, and theater, with an emphasis on cultivating creative expression. Working with professional artists in a playful environment, participants explore the performing arts as creators, performers, and audience-members, developing improvisation, performance, and collaborative skills.

During BAX’s Summer Arts Program children entering kindergarten through 6th grade participate in three different groups:
• Nano BAXers (children entering kindergarten to entering 1st grade)
• Mega BAXers (children entering 2nd grade to entering 3rd grade)
• GigaBAXers (children entering 4th grade to entering 6th grade)


NanoBAXers explore differently weekly themes with a variety of different Guest Artists working in movement, theater, music and stories. Nanos create work that is collected and presented in a gallery-style sharing at the end of the week. Additionally throughout the week, Nanos engage in Group Leader and Counselor Led activities, balancing fun creative play with their outdoor play and gallery preparations. Activities include arts and crafts, group songs and dances, drama adventures, storytelling, and more.

Mega and Giga BAXer groups explore a different arts specialty each week, working with two specialists to build their skills and foster their creativity over the course of five days. Throughout the week, Group Leader and Counselor Led activities take place, balancing fun creative play with outdoor play and performance preparations. Activities include arts and crafts, group songs and dances, drama adventures, storytelling, and more. Each week culminates in an informal performance in the BAX Theater for friends and families.
