The Klub Gymnastics… voted Best Children’s Gymnastics program in Los Angeles
Q: Does my student need to be enrolled in classes to attend Kamp?
A: No, our Kamps are recreational and we have Kampers of all gymnastics levels.
Q: What if my Kamper needs to use the Restroom?
A: Kamps have scheduled restroom breaks in our rotations. Koaches will also take restroom breaks as they see fit. We also have a restroom accessible only to students on the floor if a Kamper happens to need to use the restroom during a floor activity. Our floor restroom also has a step stool for Kampers.
Q: Do I need to pack a meal for my Kamper?
A: Yes, Kampers tend to be extra hungry at Kamp!
Q: My Kamper has a hard time when I leave. Can I stay?
A: Our Kamps are ‘drop off’ Kamps. It is common for children to feel nervous, especially on their first day. We recommend parents to remove themselves once they have said goodbye to a child who is having a hard time ‘letting go’ of their parent. Our Koaches will work with that child to help make them comfortable. Most students will settle in soon after.
Q: Is it mandatory to leave money for my Kamper to go to the store?
A: Kampers will not be taking trips to our Ribbits store starting summer 2020. Please plan and pick Kampers meals accordingly.
Q: Does TKG provide meals for Kampers?
A: Kamp families are asked to pack snacks and lunch for their Kampers.
Kampers tend to be extra hungry at Kamp!
Q: Can my 4-year-old come to Kamp?
A: Our minimum age requirement for Kamp is 5.
Q: Does my child need to be potty trained?
A: Yes, all Kampers must be fully potty trained. This means that they are fully independent in the restroom.
Q: My child is 13. Do you have many Kampers that age?
A: The majority of our Kampers are 5-8 years old. We recommend older Kampers to bring a friend their age if that is a big concern for them.
Q: How old does my child have to be to participate in Klub Kamp?
A: Our Klub Kamp program is for ages 5–13-year-olds.
Q: My child does not know gymnastics would that be a problem?
A: Our Klub Kamp is recreational and we have Kampers of different levels.
Q: Can someone else pick up my child?
A: Yes, we would need written consent in advance. Any potential late fees are still the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
Q: What is the deadline to transfer my Kamper to a different Kamp.
A: A transfer needs to be requested no less than 7 days in advance of the Kamp date. Kamp transfer request cannot always be accommodated due to fluctuations in Kamp enrollment. Any scheduled Kamp date can only be transferred once.
Q: How can my child and their friend be in the same Kamp group?
A: TKG will not be taking grouping requests starting summer 2020 and until further notice.
Q: What do I do if I missed my Kamp date?
A: TKG cannot give refunds, makeups, or credit for days a child is absent from Kamp. There are no refunds, make-ups or credits for days a Kamper is absent from Klub Kamp as we staff accordingly, and these are reserved spots.
Q: Can I use and absence from classes towards Kamp? Can I use an absence from Kamp towards classes?
A: No, classes and Kamps are two separate programs that are staff differently and have different availability.
Q: My student has an Aid? Are aids allowed to come to Kamp with my child?
A: TKG asks that a written notice from a guardian be sent in advance informing TKG that an Aid will be present for your child. The notice should include the Aids name, date and time he/she will be present. Aids are asked to wear their company ID at all times while at TKG and must remain outside of the programming area. Kampers are expected to remain with their Koach and group at all times. If there is a need for a Kamper to see their Aid or vice versa, we ask that the Koach be notified first. We want to make sure all students are accounted for at all times.

Children benefit from an active lifestyle and participating in any sport.
The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that partaking in organized sports
provides a chance for young people to increase their activity and develop
socially and physically. Gym.Net adds that gymnastics is one of the most
comprehensive lifestyle exercise programs available to children, incorporating
strength, flexibility, speed, balance, coordination, power, and discipline.
Whether they are involved in recreational gymnastics or with a competition squad,
skills learned in gymnastics can benefit a child’s overall development.
Participation in gymnastics helps children become physically active, and stay
fit and healthy.
Taking part in any exercise significantly reduces the risk of
obesity, heart disease, and diabetes in adulthood. As of 2010, one in three children
in the United States was overweight, and the President’s Council on Physical Fitness
and Sports states that “encouraging moderate and vigorous physical activity among
youth is important,” as the habits learned as a child are often carried through to adulthood.
Regular participation in gymnastics can teach children how to live a healthy lifestyle,
and remain involved in the sport as they grow up.
Partaking in gymnastics can help children sleep better, and equip them with skills to better
handle physical and emotional challenges in life. Attending a regular gymnastics class provides
young children with the opportunity to communicate with people their own age, work within a team,
and engage with adults. The Gymnastics Academy of Boston also believes that gymnastics gives children
an opportunity to learn about social skills like listening, following directions, taking turns, being
quiet, and respecting others. Children also have fun, meet new friends, and learn independence.
The challenging nature of gymnastics requires commitment and concentration. The structure of gymnastics
lessons teaches children how hard work and dedication pays off. Positive experiences in gymnastics can
build confidence through achievement, and illustrates to children that commitment to sport benefits them.
Rules and codes of conduct in gymnastics help children learn the importance of rules for safety, and teach
respect toward others.
Gymnastics helps children build a range of motor and coordination skills, and assists in developing a
good sense of body awareness. A young gymnast will learn how to use different parts of her body in
difference ways. English Gymnastics claims that participation in gymnastics develops body awareness,
control, and coordination, which can be beneficial to other physical activities, sports, and in everyday life.
Gymnasts are renowned for their excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
Taking part in gymnastics at a young age
can help build the foundations of good all-around muscle strength, endurance, and power. According to the
International Gymnastics School, gymnasts get stronger through regular training, which aids in the development
of lean, toned muscles, improved balance, and better posture.
A lifeline for working parents, L.A. County day camps struggle to adapt to new rules
Samantha “Sammie” Chou showed up to the first day of camp at L.A. Gymnastics in Culver City on Wednesday wearing a glittery new unicorn backpack, neon tumbling shorts and a petal pink surgical mask spotted with cartoon owls.
“After a week or a month, I’m going to second grade,” the 6-year-old said, betraying both a child’s idiosyncratic perception of time and the temporal limbo families like hers have faced since schools closed in mid-March. For months, her parents, Shawn Chou and Jennifer Lee, tried to fill the gaps left by piano and theater and dance and jujitsu, bingeing on Zoom play dates and racing to keep up with her demanding dual-language immersion program.
But with schools out for the summer and industries statewide opening up, both are now expected back at work.
“For our situation, camps are invaluable — we can’t live without them,” said Chou, a filmmaker and producer. “It’s actually a lifesaver for us. I don’t know what we’d do without it.”
Across California, camp will look different than it has in years past. Masks will be everywhere. Shared snacks will be banned. There will be no field trips, no clap games, no capture the flag.
But for many working families, those things don’t really matter as long as summer camp serves its primary function: child care. Providing that care in compliance with ever-evolving state and local public health guidelines, however, has proved a dizzying task for camp operators — particularly in Los Angeles County, where reopening has been tempered by ongoing deaths and a rise in new coronavirus cases.
“Marin County was way ahead of us; they opened their day camps already. [But] L.A. County was much more cautious,” said Helen Hernandez, director of parks and recreation for the city of Baldwin Park and a board member at the California Park and Recreation Society, a nonprofit industry network. “There’s 90-something cities in L.A. County that are working together to be together on the same page” with new safety protocols.
Typically, Baldwin Park offers day camp for about 150 kids a week, as well as about 25 counselors in training. The program runs from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and costs $130 a week — one of the most affordable camps in the region.
“Our community is a working community; people do have to be at work at 6:30 a.m. — some parents even ask if we can open at 5:30,” Hernandez said. “Generally we have a waiting list, because our camp is pretty reasonable.”
But with all the new rules, she said opening was impossible.
“It’s a barrage of so many things,” Hernandez said. “Every kid would need their own ball, their own jump rope, their own hula hoop. The playgrounds are still not open, so there’s no outdoor play with the playgrounds. You can’t play bingo; you don’t play Monopoly, checkers, Jenga. Even a walk to the fire department is out because the firefighters are exposed. All these things that are traditionally low-cost for us, we can’t do.”
Parks departments and private camps across the state have spent weeks swapping symptom screening tools, resources and liability wavers in an attempt to adapt to the new reality. But between a limited roster of activities and reduced staffing ratios, tight restrictions on space and an exponential increase in the cost of materials, many have canceled or moved online for the summer.
“That’s what they’re all kind of wrangling with,” said Sarah Auerswald of Moms L.A., which curates detailed information on dozens of local summer camps every year. “You either can’t afford to run because there aren’t enough kids there, or you have to make it more expensive to pay for it. That’s just the balance sheet, right?”
Indeed, in the days since California’s Department of Public Health released its long-awaited day camp guidelines, which went into effect June 12, camps that had vowed they would open suddenly said they could not. Others that had already canceled for the season abruptly reversed course, some despite having issued refunds to families who had signed up. Sleep-away camps have still not received any guidance.
“Everybody’s like, ‘What’s the plan?’ There’s a lot of plans,” said Dan Pardo of the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles, which typically runs day camps for 4,000 to 5,000 children a week in the summer. “We had a lot of people reaching out to us because they are thinking, ‘What am I doing for day care this summer? Who’s watching my kids while I’m back at work?’”
In May, Pardo was confident YMCA camps would open. But almost as soon as the state guidelines were released in June, the nonprofit announced that many could not.
“It really has been the state taking the lead on when and how these are going to be opened, and the counties are following suit from there,” said Matthew Duarte, executive director of the California Assn. of Recreation and Park Districts.
Many in L.A. described the decision not to open as a snowball effect of rules and costs.
“Our county is sort of different than everyone else,” Auerswald said. “The county health department and the city, those are the people who are saying yes you can [open] if you follow the rules.”
Most California counties have adopted the state guidelines as their own. But L.A. County’s guidelines, which were released June 11, are in some cases more stringent. City rules can be more restrictive still.
“You hear about what people are and are not doing based on what county they’re in,” said Stephanie Martinez, recreation services manager for West Hollywood. “Because our city continues to be under a state of local emergency, that limits us” too.
It also matters where camps are held inside a given city. Los Angeles Unified School District campuses, which host camps every summer, remain closed. County beaches, too, were briefly ruled off-limits for day camp operators. In May, weeks before state or local summer camp guidelines were unveiled, the Department of Beaches and Harbors said it would probably not issue beach camps permits for the summer at all.
“It was going so quickly that no sooner had we put out that letter to our operators than we heard there could be guidance for summer camps,” said department spokeswoman Carol Baker. “It involves children, so obviously we need to be very careful and cautious.”
For camp owners, though, the move felt capricious — particularly after it was reversed.
“This whole thing has been really frustrating from the beginning,” said Sina Monjazeb, owner and director of Sandy Days Kids Camp at Will Rogers State Beach, which is now slated to open in early July. “Just in the L.A. area there’s probably at least a dozen beach camps that have been affected.”
Chou said he researched dozens of camps last summer before choosing the ones Samantha would attend. Since the spring, he has been inundated with updates from those organizations — camps ready to open, then canceled, then moved online or delayed.
“What we found was the camps say, ‘We’re open! Oh, but we’re not sure,’ and then they change and reverse course and say, ‘We’re open again,’” he said.
Despite demand, experts said many families remain deeply divided about whether to send kids to camp at all.
“We actually conducted a survey with our participants and I think a lot of parents and guardians are just not ready to send their children back,” Martinez said.
For others, summer camp now feels like a litmus test: Can children really practice physical distancing? Will they wear masks all day long? Can safety precautions be scaled? If it can’t happen at camp, how will it work out with school?
“We may be holding out hope that school is going to start again in the fall no problem,” Auerswald said. With so many fits and starts opening camps, “there’s a crack in that armor.”

We will be crafting a short film from concept to final cut in 5 days, involving the students every step of the way! They will get the chance to help craft and create their own characters once a storyline has been written with THEM in mind. Upon completion of the camp, each student will be provided with a copy of the film for their own personal use and receive IMDB credit! (Its a real film so give us time after to complete) Our camps are fast, fun and you’ll be working with real industry pros who are excited to share their passion for filmmaking with your kids! And in the process your kids will have a deeper level of the craft themselves!
Camps are broken up into age groups once the number of campers exceeds 12-we make a movie with the ages we have and that is realistic and sometimes more fun! We make more than one film in some weeks where we split ages. Each child ALWAYS gets a starring role as there is NEVER more than 15 kids per film and the film will earn them an IMDb credit! We also sprinkle in some improv, commercial, dance and story making classes in each camp-each camp has an additional two classes with the camp as well as a celebrity guest sometimes upon availability!
One amazing perk of these camps is that we offer everyone real red carpet screenings of the films! They are the stars! The Shanelle Gray Studios Film festival is held February of every year after the camps. They are held in LA at the Raleigh Film Studios! We host these events to make everyone feel special and to show them how amazing they did and what it feels like to be a part of something so special. At all of the events industry pros pick best films-and the winning film gets submitted to film festivals!
Shanelle Gray Studios is also the winner of the Youth in Cinema award at the 2018 and 2019 Burbank film festival! We won for our short film “The Pact!” “The callback” and many more!
Check it out on our vimeo page:
Check out our last red carpet for 2018!
For the actors program-They star in the film! We also sprinkle in some improv and commercial classes, stage makeup classes, writing and directing classes (it’s a wild card each week they get two classes and much more!!)
For the directors program- the child or adult must take two weeks of camp-for the first week they will shadow the director and watch the directors do their thing, the second week of camp they will get to help direct the film and receive and IMDB directors credit for directing too! They need to get their feet wet first which is why they need to do two weeks! (There is also an option for them to direct and act-ask about this option!) There is a nominal fee to do both.
At the red carpet celebs and industry pros pick best films-red carpet shots etc and the winning film gets submitted to various film festivals including sundance if the film is strong enough!
The schedule is as follows- Mondays,Tuesday & Wednesday 10am to 3pm, Thursdays and Fridays 10am to 5pm – (Same schedule if a camp starts on a Thurs/Friday-Monday/Tuesday)

Free and Cheap Summer Camps for Los Angeles Kids | MommyPoppins
Summer camp can be a great way to keep Los Angeles-area kids busy and even intellectually and creatively stimulated through those long summer months—but rarely is it cheap. Amazingly, we came up with a list of LA summer camps that won’t destroy your budget, and some of them are even (gasp) FREE. Check out these summer camps with your kids, tweens, and teens now, because even though summer fun seems far away, spots will fill up before you know it.
You may want to browse great STEM camps and musical theater camps, too! Find even more options in our LA Summer Camp Guide, or browse our Camp Directory of listings by interest, age, and area. Still not sure what camp is the best fit for your kids? Learn more about local and virtual summer camps with our upcoming Online Camp Fair. Visit virtual booths and watch live camp demos.
Editor’s Note: Summer camp information for the 2021 season is changing daily. Please click the links to the individual camps for the most up-to-date information. We will update this post as we’re able to confirm more camp details. Some of the photos in this were taken before the pandemic.
Free Summer Camps for LA Kids
LA Kids through the City of LA Parks and Recreation
2021 update: All Parks and Recreation centers across the city are currently determining where and when camps will be offered in Los Angeles for the summer of 2021. We will update this information as soon as it becomes available.
Want a free camp for your kid aged 5 to 17 this summer? Look no further than the LA Parks system. The Department of Recreation and Parks, through the LA Kids program, has offered free programs and activities to youth ages 5-17 since 1996. It’s not just giving the kids a few balls and telling them to get some fresh air, either. In addition to an emphasis on health and fitness, the camps focus on the arts, drama, martial arts, dance, music, gymnastics, self-defense, skateboarding, sewing, science, and creative play. How’s that for comprehensive? Each year approximately 125,000 youths participate in classes and activities led by quality instructors in their fields. Currently, LA Kids provides instructors for the Department’s Universal Play, GPLA, and Center Paid classes throughout Los Angeles.
2021 update: For the summer of 2020, Apple Camp moved online to become Apple Camp at home. Those materials are currently available for anyone to download and use at home at any time. For the summer of 2021, the camp will be back in the stores. Sign up to be notified when Apple Camp is open for registration since spots fill quickly.
If your kid can’t let go of his screen for outdoor excitement, why fight it? This camp is just three, 90-minute sessions at your local Apple store, but your kid might pick up some useful tech tips (and bonus, you can hit the mall food court on the way home). This isn’t a drop-off opportunity, however: Apple makes it very clear that all campers must have a parent or legal guardian on-site for the duration of Apple Camp. With free wifi and often a Starbucks within eyeshot, of course, that’s not much of a sacrifice. Campers must be between the ages of 8 and 12.
Free Summer Fun Days
2021 update: The City of Long Beach is currently determining where and when camps will be offered for the summer of 2021. We will update this information as soon as it becomes available.
Parks in Long Beach
The city of Long Beach hosts Free Summer Fun Days at most of its public parks, with six hours of structured fun offered on a drop-in basis. Taking advantage of this resource means calling each local park on the list for its specific schedule, but a family could piece together a whole lot of camp (and a nice tour of Long Beach) for free. Long Beach also offers a youth summer program called Recreation Reimagined, which is a day camp for kids ages 5-12 from 9am-4pm at several locations, for the low cost of $30 a week. Sessions are not yet available, but as soon as dates and times are announced, parents will be able to register online.
Girls Who Code
2021 update: Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program will be running virtually in 2021.
Granted this free camp opportunity caters to a very select few, but it is nonetheless an amazing free opportunity: rising sophomore, junior, and senior girls—trans and cis—and non-binary students can qualify for this free 7-week STEM camp that takes place in various cities around the country, Los Angeles among them. Final application deadlines are in late-March, so it takes planning, but for the right camper this program is a game-changer. No prior computer science experience is required.
Local Community and Rec Centers
Los Angeles is not the only city in this town, and several other local rec centers have free programs for the immediate community. These programs may not always be framed as summer camp—often, in fact, they run year-round—but they are essential for local working families. Virginia Park, for example, serves local families in Santa Monica with free after-school and summer enrichment for kids. Throughout the LA area, there are also recreation centers run by the county that offer free summer programs; check the county camp website to find one near you. And while not all of the camps run by a local recreation center will be free, those that charge are still significantly cheaper than commercial camps.

Cheap Summer Camps around LA
Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club
East Los Angeles
From June 10 to August 2, 2021, the Boys & Girls Club of LA offers an activity-filled summer camp option that’s priced on a sliding scale—depending on your family income, prices can range from $45 to $200 per week. Kids get access to games, computers, field trips, dance instruction, ceramics, STEM classes, and even field trips. The camp is held from 7:30am to 6pm, but the day is full; there’s also baseball and swimming if you give the okay. You will also need to release your kids’ school records.
2021 update: Camp dates and locations will be announced soon. Check the website for details and updates.
While the Y has overnight camps, its day camps can offer almost all of the benefits of traditional camp—new experiences, skill-building, a sense of community, and lasting friendships—while allowing campers to return home each afternoon. YMCAs offer day camps for elementary school children, but some have offerings for pre-schoolers and teens, too. Chances are good there’s a Y day camp near you, as there are more than 1,850 across the country. Prices vary but are usually discounted for members.
Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Summer Camp
With day camp locations in Long Beach and Altadena, and an overnight program in Frazier Park, the Girl Scouts camps offer classic camp activities, including crafts, games, and campfires that provide opportunities for girls to discover, connect, and take action in ways that build their courage, confidence, and character. Depending on location, girls can swim, try their hands at archery, challenge themselves on a ropes course, climbing towers, learn marine science, and more. Financial aid “Camperships” are available for campers whose family financial circumstances might otherwise prevent them from attending camp.
PAL Police Activity League
Find out if there’s a PAL near you. Started as a way to give neighborhood kids something to do that didn’t involve breaking windows, this is a non-profit camp that gives kids a chance to hang out with the real cops patrolling their neighborhoods.
2021 update: Camp Invention will host the 2021 program online. This summer enjoy Camp Invention Connect: Recharge from the comfort of home.
The next generation of engineers, inventors, and scientists will love this camp, which features robot building, a superhero-themed challenge to build a device to retrieve stolen ideas and island survival tools. The camp is for five days for kids from kindergarten to 6th grade and is from 9am to 3:30pm.

Griffith Park Boy’s Camp
2021 update: Griffith Park Boy’s Camp has not yet made final decisions about the summer of 2021. There is the possibility that this will be run as a day camp this year. Check the website for details and updates.
Operating since 1924, this boys’ sleep-away camp is a 10-acre facility you probably didn’t know existed. The grounds (which are close enough for a last-minute rescue, but know that will cost you part or all of your fee) have 16 bungalow-style cabins that sleep 10 and (to your son’s great relief) are air-conditioned and heated. The four bathroom/shower bungalows have hot and cold running water year-round, and the main lodge/dining hall has a wood-burning fireplace and a full-service kitchen. But your kid will be more excited by the 30 ft. rock climbing wall, high ropes challenge course, archery range, and miles of hiking trails. Boys ages 7-14 can sign up, and spots are available for low-income applicants, too.
2021 update: Camp Hollywoodland has not yet made final decisions about the summer of 2021. There is the possibility that this will be run as a day camp this year. Check the website for details and updates.
Called the best-kept secret in Los Angeles, this girls’ sleep-away camp just under the Hollywood sign has swimming, a climbing wall, outdoor living skills, nature awareness, field trips, and themed programs that include meals, lodging, snacks, equipment, and supervision. The program schedule is from 7:30am (rise & shine) until 8:30 or 9:30pm (lights out). During the course of the day, campers choose activities by cabin groups, age groups, and individually. All activities are taught by trained and experienced staff. Weekly sessions begin Monday (check-in is 8am – 9:30am) and end Friday (pick-up is 5:30 – 6:30pm). Girls 6 -14 years old are divided into cabin groups with a 3 year age span (ages 6-8, 9-11, 12-14). Each cabin has between 2 and 3 counselors who sleep in the cabins with their campers. A separate Camper Leadership Development (CLD) Progam is available for girls 15-17 years of age.
Vacation Bible School
If your family is comfortable with a little religious curriculum in your summer camp experience, VBS is a very affordable solution. Many local churches across the county offer Vacation Bible School programs, which vary in religious content and price, of course. Any given church may only do a week or two of VBS, but that week may cost as little as $20. Check with your local church to see if they offer a summer camp.

Most of the guys are accommodated in double rooms.

Girls and boys are accommodated on different floors. The rooms are depleted in a block with a shared bathroom and toilet.

Meals – on weekdays in the student canteen. Children are offered a choice of pizzas, pasta, hot meat or fish dishes, fresh pastries and a salad bar. On weekends, the guys have excursions, so lunches and dinners are at their place. You need to count on an average of 40-60 required for meals during excursions.
The Los Angeles Acting Summer Camp curriculum covers all of the essential, closely related acting techniques that must be used to “live honestly” in imaginary circumstances: the techniques of Stella Adler, Lee Strasbourg, Stanford Meisner, Uta Hagen, Jerzy Gronowski and Ann Bogart.
Stella Adler’s Technique includes full immersion in the role and feelings of the character being portrayed. The starting point for working on a role for Adler is imagination. Adler calls on the actor to look at life not with his own eyes, but through the prism of his imagination. The basic things an actor must work on are self-confidence, discipline, control over his body and emotions. The actor must memorize the text not only with his mind, but also with his body – to work on the so-called muscle memory.
Lee Strasberg’s Method teaches you to use your own experience as a springboard for getting into the emotional life of a character. In his technique, Strasberg borrowed a lot from Stanislavsky. So, for example, the most significant things in his methodology are improvisation and emotional memory. The actor must believe as much as possible that the circumstances in which he is on stage are quite real. Lee Strasberg’s students include Dustin Hoffman, Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman and Al Pacino.
Stanford Meisner’s theory teaches how to get actors to tell the truth in imaginary circumstances. One of the most popular Meisner exercises is this: two partners say the same things to each other until some change occurs in their emotions. Meisner considered imagination to be a much more powerful tool for working on a role than emotional memory. He was the teacher of Alec Baldwin, Jeff Bridges, Gregory Peck, and Sandra Bullock.
Uta Hagen ‘s theory is that the actor should look in himself for something that will help him to play. He must trust his instincts and sensations. Uta Hagen has raised actors such as Marlon Brando, Whoopi Goldberg, and Matthew Broderick.
The theory of Jerzy Gronowski attaches the greatest importance to memories – if you listen to your body, you can evoke the necessary emotions. Grotowski believed that acting does not need to be learned, you just need to remember what the actor once knew and was able to do.It doesn’t take much effort from a child to portray a superhero, monster or princess: he does it naturally. The actor’s task is to return to this naturalness.
Annie Bogart’s Technique : It is based on 6 elements – space, form, time, emotion, movement, history. These are the six languages an actor must be able to speak. According to this theory, the actor is not faced with the task of convincing the viewer of something; the actor must become a researcher together with the viewer. An actor is a participant in communication who is very dependent on all these elements: space (architecture, distance, distance between partners, design), shape (position of bodies in space, shape of bodies, relationships between bodies and architecture) and time (pace, duration).

The Acting program is closely related to filmmaking programs – directing, producing, or screenwriting. The guys who came to the camp to get acquainted with the various professions of the world of filmmaking work together, using each other’s skills and talent to create a joint product. And this product deserves to become an ornament to the portfolio of everyone who took part in its creation. Moreover, the technical equipment of the camp gives every opportunity! The footage filmed for the portfolio will look and listen professionally!
A feature of the Los Angeles Acting Summer Camp is the combination of theory and practice of acting from the very first day of training: the guys will immediately be filmed on camera.While many other schools force them to spend weeks, months, even years on theatrical games and exercises, before giving their students a real opportunity to work in front of the camera. At the Summer Camp Acting in Los Angeles, the scenes in the films will go to everyone !!! However, this does not mean that children are not taught anything, exercises for the development of acting skills and theory are given in the context of preparing for a specific scene.
In addition to the practice of acting in films, students will have intensive technique classes taught by professional actors.Students will work both in groups and one-on-one with their teachers.
Usually, the morning begins with basic acting exercises that promote psychophysical development – active imagination, naturalness, partnership, breathing and kinesthetic consciousness. Physical and vocal workouts will also be conducted in the morning.
Further – improvisation, study of the role, analysis of the text and scene.
Acting – 2 or 3 weeks (13-19 years old)
June 16 – June 29, 2019 (2 weeks)
July 21 – August 03, 2019 (2 weeks)
June 30 – July 20, 2019 (3 weeks)
Levels: Beginner to Advanced
1st week Pierre and August Lumière film
Students must tell a simple story with a sweaty start, development, and end in one frame up to two minutes.The focus is on mise-en-scène. Students should carefully consider the position of all elements in the frame – camera movements, composition, blocking of actors, props and lighting in order to tell their stories in the most clear and creative way.
2nd week Porter Film
Edwin Porter was one of the first filmmakers to edit photographs together in continuous mode. He created the illusion of “continuity”, where footage filmed over several days or weeks looks like it was all filmed in a matter of minutes.His acclaimed film “The Great Train Robbery” is a source of inspiration for young actors to make a 3-4 minute continuous film from hours of footage. Students are given four hours to pick up material and one day to edit it.
3rd week of Kubrick Film
The greatest and most innovative filmmaker in the United States, Stanley Kubrick has made many masterpieces over 50 years of his creative career. He set the standard for cinematic excellence across a variety of genres, combining staging, lighting, set design, acting and editing to create a radically new understanding of film.The Master’s films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, Dr. Strangelove, Barry Lyndon, Lolita, The Shining and Full Metal Jacket were included in the textbooks. The children are given a whole day so that they, using the knowledge gained in 3 weeks, create their own 4-5 minute project. They will have two days to edit the material.
For an actor, photography is a calling card. Therefore, all students will spend time in a photo studio.
Scene and monologue
An actor without a scene and a monologue as a photographer without a camera.Castings often ask actors to play a prepared scene of their choice. Therefore, each student will be able to choose a scene or monologue and rehearse it to perfection. This scene or monologue will be the performance of the students at the final show.
Composing a great demo is the most important thing for aspiring actors and prospective students of creative universities. The demo video is a great demonstration of the best works, a kind of your own showcase.
This video will be edited with the help of the instructors and shown in the final show at the end of the program.
Acting advanced level – 3 weeks (15-19 years old)
June 30 – July 20, 2019
A more intensive training program based on the same concepts and methods. This program is for those who intend to study in theater schools and want to make themselves the most winning creative portfolio.
Alfred Hitchcock is a master of visual storytelling, where one silent frame conveys more information to the viewer than the entire dialogue of the actors. The children will be asked to tell their stories using this method. Dialogue should be as short as possible, but use of scene, camera movement, lighting, color and sound should be as meaningful as possible.
One of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Akira Kurosawa was a master of all genres (“The Sven Samurai”, “Ikiru” and “The Hidden Fortress”).Kurosawa was especially attentive to acting. After watching each other’s work, the children will be asked to choose the most successful films from this point of view, the most truthful acting works, without losing sight of everything they have learned about the story itself.
The success of creative self-expression is achieved as a result of the hard work of students and all camp staff. But this is summer vacation! Therefore, despite the intense activities, the rest in the camp is filled with fun and a friendly atmosphere.
Los Angeles Acting Summer Camp students take advantage of being in the center of the world’s cinematic capital. No wonder Hollywood and Los Angeles, because of the year-round sun and beautiful landscapes, have become synonymous with the word “film industry”. But Los Angeles is also the center of television, music, fashion life in the United States. It is a center for creativity and arts. The program of the stay includes excursions to the Walk of Fame, Warner Brothers and Universal Studios, an amusement park in Santa Monica and, of course, the beach.
The compulsory program also includes meetings with filmmakers and actors, where they will tell the children about their work.
On the last Friday, the program ends with a final show, where the guys will demonstrate their skills. But everyone is invited to this show – friends and parents of young actors. Films with the participation of children and performances will be shown.
Every evening from Monday to Friday, the guys have an entertainment program, whether it is a barbecue on campus, lunch in the city, the beach, a pool, a theater or musical performance, or watching a movie.On Saturday afternoons, an excursion is organized – a trip to the museum, to the beach or to a show in the city. Last year, the guys went to Coney Island Amusement Park, Universal Studios, disco bowling, Broadway shows, Six Flags amusement park …

Here she became a member of the national team, won a number of impressive victories. At the age of 16, she first tried herself as a coach. And I realized – this is the work of her whole life.
Maria lives and works in Los Angeles today. Here she created her own company and founded the Training Camp USA project. The name is actually literal: the essence of the project is the organization of training camps and master classes with world sports stars.And the task is to develop rhythmic gymnastics in the United States, to create an opportunity for the younger generation to master the experience of the best athletes in the world.
We asked Maria Belova to tell in more detail about the project – and in general about her work abroad.
– Maria, is it typical to become a coach in rhythmic gymnastics at the age of 16?
– More likely no than yes. It depends on the desire and desire to give their knowledge to the younger generation. When a gymnast ends her sports career, she begins to help her coach, goes to assistants for a year or two, takes small groups of children.And then he starts working independently.
As a coach, I worked in Moscow, then I was invited to Dublin – the task was to prepare young athletes for a major tournament. My pupils won national competitions, became winners and prize-winners of prestigious international tournaments – this is the main award for a coach.
After that I worked in the USA, I was invited to coach children in a club in New York. Several tournaments were successfully held, then the pandemic intervened. Now training is going online, the competition has been canceled.Although some states are trying to open gyms.
– How high is the status of Russian rhythmic gymnastics in the United States?
– As high as anywhere in the world. We have been leaders in this sport for 30 years. Russia is number one, these are the best gymnasts, the best coaches. 90 percent of coaches in the United States are Russian. They are invited, they open their clubs here.
– Probably, it is not only the origin of the coach that matters, but also his personal achievements, talent, experience?
– Of course.By the time I started working in New York, I already had achievements as a coach, my children showed high results. It is no coincidence that in the New York club I was immediately entrusted with training children of the highest level of training – according to the American classification, level 10, from which they are already selected for the national team. This is a very significant indicator – if you look at the statistics, coaches who are just starting to work in a new club are usually given groups of 5-6 levels.
– What is the uniqueness of your coaching methodology – or is it a professional secret?
– No, no.Let’s start with the fact that the school of the Olympic reserve in Moscow, where I studied and then began to train, brought together the best coaches in Russia. And that means the best in the world. The choreographers of the Bolshoi Theater, top-level specialists, work with the athletes here. When you gain experience in such an atmosphere, your own training technique is formed according to the highest standards.
As for the specifics of my coaching methodology … The fact is that usually children are simply forced to cram and repeat the exercises.I have a complex approach to children, I try to be both a coach, a psychologist, and a friend to everyone. With this approach, it is easier to see where this or that child has problems and help him.
Also important is my unique program, which I have developed throughout my sports career. These are multifunctional exercises that I select individually for each gymnast, so my children achieve high results in a short time!
– Tell us about the Training Camp USA project that you are implementing in Los Angeles.
– I have created a unique company in America that deals with master classes and training camps with world stars of rhythmic gymnastics. We bring Olympic champions and renowned coaches to the United States who also have unique methodologies, and we strive to channel their experience into the development of American sports.
At the same time, I assume that the possibilities of traditional master classes, which are designed for one hour, are still limited. For an hour, a child will not remember anything – it’s like just coming to take a picture with a star, I think.
Therefore, I decided to opt for training camps that take place during the holidays, usually two weeks. During the school year, children study in the morning and come to practice in the evening. During the holidays in the training camp, they train for 2-3 hours in the morning, then rest, and in the evening they train for another 2-3 hours, depending on age. It looks like a sports training camp adopted in Russia. I am sure that this format will give young gymnasts much more, especially considering that we invite Moscow coaches and champions.
There is no such practice in the USA in rhythmic gymnastics. Of course, American sports clubs invite stars – but classes with them are available only to those who train in this particular club. Because nobody canceled the competition. On the contrary, we do not compete with existing clubs, but rather unite them all, provide opportunities for all children involved in rhythmic gymnastics.
– Have you already taken concrete steps in this direction?
– Yes, the first event is planned as part of Training Camp USA – a two-day master class, which will be held October 10-11 in Los Angeles.With the difference that the master class usually lasts one hour, and we will have two days of 4 hours each. Olympic champion of Rio de Janeiro-2016 Margarita Mamun was invited to it. We have already agreed with her, there are no problems with the premises – a large hall suitable for gymnastics. In addition to classes, time is planned for communication with the champion, answering questions, taking pictures, and drawing prizes.
– Who is this event intended for, how much is it in demand?
– For children of all ages.Exercises will be given for all ages. Even if the children are not able to do everything, then they will work, sort everything out with the coaches.
There is a demand for this form of training. There are about 100 schools of rhythmic gymnastics in America, this sport is represented in all states.
We expect about 200 children, including those from other states. California has the largest number of clubs, it will be convenient, since they do not have to take their children far.
But coaches and parents from different states constantly call us, everyone wants to get to our master class.
Tickets are already on sale and are being bought from other cities such as New York, Miami. Children will be brought by parents or trainers.
– Tactless question – how much does the ticket cost?
– $ 650 This information is open, it is on the project website. And there is nothing tactless here. The project should pay off – after all, my company pays taxes to the state.
We are now waiting for the opening of the borders. If the situation is unfavorable, we will have to postpone the master class, safety comes first for us.But in any case, it will take place – this is a unique opportunity for each child to gain invaluable experience from the best gymnast in the world!

90,000 Special Olympics History: 51 Years of Continuous Evolution
The 2019 Special Olympics Games in Abu Dhabi are held from 8 to 22 March. They brought together over 7,000 athletes from 170 countries. Athletes compete in 24 sports ranging from judo and triathlon to bowling.And it all started 51 years ago with several volunteers and 1000 athletes.
Sister of President Kennedy and the First Games
The Special Olympics Movement was based on personal drama. A girl named Rosemary, the oldest sister of US President John F. Kennedy (and he had eight sisters and brothers), suffered from a severe mental disorder. After the lobotomy, she spent the rest of her life in psychiatric clinics, where she was visited by relatives.Of course, they were all worried, but one of the sisters, Eunice, took this tragedy as a signal for action.
In 1962, she published a famous appeal to fellow citizens, in which she was not afraid to publicly announce the illness of the sister of the President of America. In the letter, Eunice called it unfair that people with disabilities are isolated, and urged compatriots to reconsider this position. The appeal received a warm response from the public.
In the same year, Eunice and her husband, Sargent Shriver, converted their Maryland home to a sports summer camp for children and adults with disabilities. It turned out that they show excellent athletic abilities and are happy to learn everything new, if you just surround them with care.
And in the summer of 1968, the first international Special Olympics were held at the Warfield in Chicago, in which 1000 athletes with disabilities represented 26 states and Canada in three sports: athletics, swimming and floor hockey.A handful of volunteers helped organize the event, and there were less than a hundred spectators in the stands. But a start was made. The Special Games were a success.
Sports ticket to life
Television has had a particular impact on the popularity of the Games. In 1983, Roone Arledge, president of ABC Sport, aired the games in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on the Wild World of Sports.He won an Emmy for this broadcast, and in 1987 he gave two hours of prime time to the Games’ opening ceremony in South Bend, Indiana, something that no one else had done before.
In 1995, the Healthy Athletes program was launched. Through this program, Special Olympics has become the world’s largest healthcare organization for people with intellectual disabilities. The program changed their lives, providing free healthcare services and, of course, information resources that told about everything in the world – from what food is good for, to how to choose the right shoes.
Unified Sports is another Special Olympics program launched in 1991. Approximately 20% of Special Olympics athletes participate in it. Players with disabilities train and play side by side on the same team. In 1991 there were only two sports in the program, today there are 16.

“We’ve seen a lot of growth in recent years,” says Peter Wheeler, head of strategic values at the World Olympics. – The program helps to spread the idea of involvement in schools. The guys play together everywhere – in universities in China, in preparatory and private schools in Africa, etc. This is the perfect solution to help our program grow and attract other people to it. Now our mantra has changed from “Let’s help those who have developmental disabilities” to “Let’s play with those who have developmental disabilities”.
Anthem to Equal Opportunities
In 2003, the Games were held in Ireland. They brought together 5,500 athletes and became the largest sporting event of the year. In China, the Games were held in 2007, a year before the host of the Summer Olympics in Beijing. They have contributed to a real volunteer boom in China.
2007 Shanghai Special Olympics Opening Ceremony
Special Olympics grew from a handful of volunteers in 1968.The Games now have a stable core of dedicated employees. Learning and coaching has taken it to the next level: training becomes more challenging and helps athletes get stronger and perform better.
– We do not lock our athletes inside their group. We educate them, educate our youth, companies are looking to recruit Special Olympics. This has never happened before, ”said Reifer Johnson, an Olympic decathlete and founder of the California Special Olympics, on the eve of the Games.“But we still have a lot to do.
In 2019, the next Special Olympics took place, this time in Abu Dhabi. The Russian team included 211 participants from 27 regions of Russia. The Russians will compete for awards in 20 disciplines, and in basketball, football and volleyball, our country has represented 2 teams. The youngest athlete is only 15 years old, the most experienced is 52 years old.
Coca-Cola has been a founding partner of Special Olympics since 1968.Since the founding of the organizing committee of the competition in 1968, Coca-Cola has transferred more than $ 190 million to its account.
Coca-Cola also supports Russian athletes with special needs. Moreover, the Russians went to the Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi in the anniversary year – exactly 20 years ago, an all-Russian public charitable organization was created to help people with disabilities.
– In 2018, for the 50th anniversary of the organization, The Coca-Cola Foundation allocated a grant for the development of the Special Olympics in Russia, in particular, for the preparation of the Russian team for the Games in Abu Dhabi.This marks an important step in the history of the Coca-Cola-Special Olympics collaboration. Among the major joint projects in Russia since 2015 are the participation of athletes with disabilities in matches of the 2017 Confederation Cup and the 2018 FIFA World Cup ™, support for futsal and united football tournaments as part of the All-Russian Special Olympics Games, holding a unified hockey match ahead of Winter Universiade 2019 and assistance in obtaining jobs for people with disabilities, – said the General Director of the Special Olympics of Russia Lyudmila Knyazeva.
Coca-Cola has teamed up Breanna Bogucki (left) and Madison Talvin with O.A.R.’s Cody Simpson and Mark Roberge. to record the Special Olympics 2015 anthem.

90,000 Beijing-2022 will repeat the fate of Moscow-1980? Americans may boycott the Games in China
The announcement comes amid growing tensions between China and many Western countries. Price added that a “coordinated approach” between the United States and its allies would be preferable, and that they are in talks with partners about what steps to take. 90,075 90,072 The United States, the European Union, Canada and the United Kingdom imposed sanctions on China last month in response to alleged human rights violations against the Muslim Uyghur population in Xinjiang.China is accused of crimes including the use of forced labor, detention of thousands of people in internment camps, forced sterilization and the willful destruction of Uyghur heritage. Beijing claims the camps are training centers designed to root out Islamist extremism and separatism. 90,075 90,072 Human rights abuses by China, including in Tibet and Hong Kong, are coming under increasing scrutiny as the 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Beijing approach.The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has repeatedly received appeals from various organizations with a call to deprive China of the rights to host the Olympic Games.
Until recently, high-ranking officials traditionally avoided questions about the boycott of the Games in Beijing, so Price’s words caused a great resonance. The spokesman for the State Department did not name the time frame when a decision will be made whether or not to send athletes to China. And a little later, he even softened his position by tweeting a message: “We have no announcements regarding the Beijing Olympic Games.”
Earlier, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that he did not rule out a boycott of the Beijing Olympics. However, he made a reservation that the decision would be made in consultation with “friendly democracies”. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, in turn, suggested (or a proposal?) That a boycott of the 2022 Games may be possible for politicians and dignitaries.
As for Price’s words, there has already been a reaction to them from Japan: the representative of the Cabinet of Ministers Katsunobu Kato said that the country did not and does not conduct any negotiations with the United States on boycotting the Olympics.
It is obvious that China, which by some estimates last year became the first economy in the world, will not leave unpunished attempts to boycott its Games. Moreover, the answer can be both political and economic. If, nevertheless, it comes to an open conflict, many countries will have to choose between “two fires” and will not seem to anyone. By the way, one should not forget that in 2028 the Olympic Games will be hosted by Los Angeles, and then a reciprocal boycott cannot be avoided.
If we have already mentioned Los Angeles 2028, it does not hurt to recall the history of boycotts of the Olympic Games.
1956 – due to the Suez Crisis, the tournament in Melbourne was boycotted by Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon and Cambodia. Due to the Hungarian events, teams from the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland did not come to Australia in protest against the actions of the USSR (it would seem that there is a connection between Hungary and Australia, and still, whoever wanted to find it).
1964 – the teams of three countries – Indonesia, North Korea and South Africa – did not reach Japan. The North Koreans, apparently, have such a tradition – to ignore the Games, which are held by the hated Japanese.
1976 – representatives of 26 African countries, Iraq and Guyana did not come to Montreal. It was a reaction to the reluctance of the IOC to remove from the Games New Zealand, whose national rugby team played a match with the South African team shortly before the Games.
1980 – The most ambitious boycott of the Games took place at the Olympics in Moscow. 64 countries did not send their representatives to the USSR, although not all of them were for political reasons (some for economic reasons, and some were simply not invited by the IOC).
1984 – of course, four years later, the Americans received a response from the Eastern Bloc: 14 countries led by the USSR refused to participate in the Los Angeles Games for security reasons, Albania, Libya and Iran also joined them.
1988 – North Koreans boycotted the Seoul Games, supported by Albania, Cuba, Nicaragua and Ethiopia.
By the way, the idea of boycotting the Games in China was actively discussed 13 years ago before the Summer Olympics in Beijing. Then the reasons were also the violation of human rights, as well as the suppression of the separatist movement in Tibet. It got to the point that the idea of a boycott was publicly approved by the head of the European Parliament. However, then a large-scale boycott was avoided. Most likely, it will succeed now.
Unless, of course, politics interferes. 90,075 90,000 Los Angeles Language Camps – Learning English on Vacation in Los Angeles, USA
