BOLD Arts camp at RRA

This past week we had the pleasure of partnering with BOLD Arts to offer a new performing arts camp titled: Fields of Wonder: A Celebration of Nature and the Arts. It was so rewarding to see the girls arrive daily with big smiles on their faces looking forward to another day filled with dance and music. And it wasn't just the campers that arrived joyful each day – the BOLD Arts team made up of Jenn Eisenberg, Valerie Norman Ornstein and Aidan Wynn Davis were filled with such enthusiasm that it was infectious!


The performance that they put together over one short week was spectacular! Small groups of dancers created their own piece based on nature-themed works of art such as Monet's Water Lilies. They also danced to Mary Oliver's poem This World, they sang the song Fireflies by Owl City, and performed their own interpretation of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax. Hats off to the dancers for an amazing performance!
