Camp Newark Museum Embraces Modern Movement
For the Newark Museum, summer time is filled with energetic children ready to tackle Camp Newark Museum.
Throughout the weeks campers experience themes relating to the galleries in the Museum and then create a performance for their parents. This week’s show incorporated the first two themes of camp: All Fired Up and Modern Movement. Specifically, the performance was inspired by the Asian, African and Native American galleries. Instead of using traditional dances from these cultures, the routine included modern moves.
All of the campers were dressed in various costumes, such as feather headbands and face paint, that they decorated themselves. As the lights dimmed, the upbeat performance began with an informative, introduction video followed by the children dancing to a range of music while the audience enthusiastically clapped along.
At the end of the performance, both the 9 to 10 year olds and teen campers showed a video they produced along with a slideshow relating to the first two weeks of camp. The campers put on an outstanding, entertaining show that they vigorously worked on. In two more weeks the campers will create another performance that combines the next two themes of camp: Reclaim, Recycle, Reuse I’m a maker and Oh Snap.
