ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Theatre of Youth began its Spring Beak Boot Camp Monday (3/11) with 35 children in attendance.

This week participants will learn about mime, dance, voice work, acting and improvisation.

"Kids who feel very shy, they can get involved in a group and they can express themselves", said Steven Hunt, camp instructor and director.

"All the kids learn to respect each other, they allow each other to express themselves, and there's a real sense of comradery and achievement."

Students will be learning and performing a 'play-a-day' with a final performance at the end of the week for their parents.

Spring Break Boot Camp is fully booked, but the Alaska Theatre of Youth run programs during most holidays.
