Locally, there are a couple summer programs that my son has enjoyed over the last couple years. Lexington Youth Center for Asian Learning (LYCAL) offers week-long summer camps in August 2014. It also offers two-week camps for international students. More details can be found at: www.lycalma.us/summer-camp.
Angel Performing Arts offers dance and Music workshops at Waltham, Framingham, Acton and Sharon in this Summer. Students will learn Chinese dances, Ballet, Jazz, Vocal Class, and Stage Performing Arts. Please visit www.angelperformanceart.com for more information.
