Senior Camp


June 6 - June 29, 2020


Camp Philosophy

Accept the Challenge

Texas Arts Project strives to cre­ate the “com­plete artist.” Junior Campers get a taste of singing, act­ing, and danc­ing. Senior Campers choose a “major” field of study, and have oppor­tu­ni­ties to engage in cours­es and activ­i­ties in all oth­er majors. There is an expec­ta­tion that all campers try new things as they strength­en the skills in their com­fort area and learn to enjoy expand­ing their hori­zons in all oth­er areas. Individual atten­tion along with high expec­ta­tions for the group encour­age per­son­al respon­si­bil­i­ty and teamwork.

Discover the Process

The study of any sub­ject begins with the basics and the per­form­ing arts at TAP camp are no dif­fer­ent. Campers vig­or­ous­ly study the nuts and bolts of each field of study — from act­ing tech­niques and musi­cal the­atre his­to­ry to film edit­ing and body con­di­tion­ing. Only through inti­mate aware­ness with our field can we prop­er­ly work towards our great­est potential.

Realize Your Potential

At TAP camp, we nev­er lose sight of the final goal. Showcase rehearsals require campers to inte­grate their tech­nique with strong per­for­mance skills. Film shoots and hours in the edit­ing stu­dio keep our film­mak­ers guid­ed towards the final prod­uct. Our rig­or­ous rehearsal and prepa­ra­tion process ensures a feel­ing of accom­plish­ment and per­son­al suc­cess with each and every as they take their final bow or watch their last cred­its roll.

*NOTE: All campers for TAP Junior & TAP Senior are required to audi­tion at the begin­ning of camp. Auditions are held for many rea­sons. The staff will get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to know all the campers and their strengths and weak­ness­es in all types of per­for­mance. Additionally the staff will be able to make cast­ing deci­sions about the final show­case, place campers in the cor­rect class lev­els, and make sure that all class­es are chal­leng­ing and appro­pri­ate. All campers will par­tic­i­pate in mul­ti­ple sec­tions of the audi­tion. The audi­tion process will be con­duct­ed in a pro­fes­sion­al and encour­ag­ing envi­ron­ment. It will be fun, but we are expect­ing your per­son­al best. Visit Placement Auditions for more information.

Experiencing TAP camp was imper­a­tive for me in so many ways. Whether it was quick­ly learn­ing music and chore­og­ra­phy or learn­ing my lines for the short film I was in, TAP pre­pared me for col­lege and the pro­fes­sion­al world of film and theatre.”
