La Peña’s Mundos Musicales Summer Camp: A Bilingual Summer Camp Exploring Latin America & Caribbean Culture through Music, Dance & Art!
July 22 – 26, 2019, 8:30am-2:30pm
Ages: 7-11 years old (no exceptions)
The emphasis of Mundos Musicales Summer Camp is hands-on learning and fun activities!
The musical and artistic curriculum is designed to develop musicianship, physical coordination, bilingual literacy/pronunciation skills, multi-cultural awareness, and comfort with public speaking and performance among our students. At the end of the week the children will have an opportunity to share what they learned with their friends and family!
At La Peña’s Mundos Musicales Summer Camp, participants will:
Take an imaginary trip through Mexico with Maestra María, exploring its music, legends, dance, and song. They will learn to sing, play and dance to son jarocho music and other Mexican folkloric genres.
Through drumming, song, and story telling, children will be introduced to the musical traditions of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic by Maestro Hector. They will learn to play hand drums, maracas, bells, claves and other Afro-Caribbean percussion instruments. They will also learn beats, songs and stories that come from these countries.
Using the music and dance classes as inspiration, students will design and prepare stage scenery for use in their showcase the last day of camp! Maestra Laura will guide students to creating murals and props created with their imagination based on what they learn in their mundos musicales classes!
