Geibel Catholic Junior-Senior High School, along with acting and music teacher Nick Bell, are helping area youth experience the performing arts this summer.

Bell is offering two performing arts camps at the school this month. Bell said among other things, students will learn acting terms, improvisation, pantomime and will be doing some dancing and singing.

“We try to incorporate every part of the performing arts that we can in five days, for three hours a day, so we get through a lot and have a lot of fun,” Bell said.

This is the second year the camps will be offered at the school.

Tina Haky of McClellandtown sent her daughter Katie, 13, to the camp last year. Haky said her daughter enjoyed the camp so much she will return this year.

“She really enjoyed the improvisation,” Haky said. “I think she got a great exposure to a lot of different types of music and a lot of different types of kids.”

Katie Cantanzarite, 18, of McClellandtown also attended last year's camp. Cantanzarite, who graduated from Geibel this year, said she attended the camp because she was involved in the musicals at the school.

“He did a lot of exercises that helped with the musicals, and he brought in a choreographer and we danced and it really helped me,” she said.

Bell said the camps are open to all children in the area in the fourth through 12 grades regardless of what school they attend.

“The camps are for any child who would like to come and learn about the performing arts,” Bell said.

The first camp for students entering grades 9-12 will be held July 15-19. The second camp for students entering grades 4-8 will be held July 22-26.

Both camps are held at Geibel from 9 a.m. to noon each day.

The cost for each camp is $50 for the week.

Those interested in signing up for either camp can call the school at 724-628-5600 or email Bell at nbell@geibelcatholic.org.
