2018 SUMMER THEATER CAMP
Notes from our families:
"Thank you so much for all you did to make this summer a wonderful experience! It is so amazing to have a place to send your child they feel safe and happy......thank you. had such a great time she is already talking about next year!"
"Just wanted to again thank you and everyone associated with the Junior Camp for the last two weeks. Even though we remained land-locked in Bergen County, my son and I agreed it was the best "vacation" we've ever experienced.
I am still in disbelief when sang lead in his number, to see a kid who too often dwells in anxiety seize the moment and command the stage (I'm only welling up now recalling it, unlike the stream of tears that occurred during the show). But even more heartening was hearing a child he had struggled with a bit early in camp, tell him post-show, "I'm really going to miss you." During camp we talked a lot about "not sweating the small stuff" and, with the help of you, and others, my kid finally let his guard down and opened himself to the possibility that words are just words and that the people who speak them are not all that bad. Thanks to you and BTW for “caring” for my son in the truest sense of the word and helping him grow so exponentially these last two weeks. Can't wait for next summer."
“Thank you so much for all the updates. It’s first year and she LOVES the camp. She has learned to much. This has been the best thing for her. It has taken that shy girl out of her shell.... I see so much confidence. She has met so many great kids and loves all the instructors! Thank you for offering such an amazing summer program.”
“Thank you for another year of sharing your stage and your hearts with . She is blessed to have had this opportunity the past two summers. She loved all the new additions/classes available to her these past two weeks. She even made a few new friends! Watching my tall drink of water on your stage last night, I had memories of the cat eared girl that walked fearlessly into BTW and never wanted to leave. She has grown incredibly in many ways, but as a performer I can attribute so much of her education to her BTW camp experiences. The show is a true testament of what you've inspired these kids to do. Thank you for keeping it fresh, sharing your talents, passionately teaching and most of all, for your generosity to our family.”

The Road That Will Appear Only After It Is Traveled!
By Luigi Jannuzzi
If you want a road in front of you, become an accountant, veterinarian, or lawyer. There is a set path of study, exams and graduation.
If you want to be an artist, expect no road before you. However, when you turn around in one, two, thirty years, there will be a road. But it will be in back of you.
This non-road that leads you seemingly aimless at first into the wood, the desert, the mountain, will appear in back of you right to where you are standing, where you are about to take your next step.
You must get use to this. Take comfort in the past that leads you to where you are, that made you what you create, and that will propel your next step.
You have quite frankly chosen the road that will appear only after it is imagined and traveled. This is what you wanted. This is what you dream of. This is what you have fought for.
