BEBOP- Dayton Performing Arts Alliance Introduces Unique Summer Camp Experience


The aim of BeBOP is to provide children first exposure to ballet, opera and the philharmonic orchestra during a week-long day camp filled with experiences designed to encourage creativity and to inspire a life-long love of the arts.
