Description: 

Showagon is the City of Cleveland’s summer performing arts troupe made up of young people from all parts of the City. Youth ages 8-18 dance, sing, act and perform poetry on the Showagon stage. The Showagon troupe performs at festivals, recreation centers and community events throughout the summer.

The nine-week program begins June 24th through August 9th. The first two weeks are dedicated to rehearsals, and the last seven to performances. Once up and running, the Showagon troupe performs four to five times each week. Our young participants gain invaluable experience that helps them become poised and polished performers.

During the rehearsal phase of the program, talented Showagon staff members work with dancers, singers, and poets before they are ready to take the stage. A vocal coach teaches vocal techniques and helps youth select songs appropriate for the show; our choreographer stages exhilarating dance numbers with classy costumes.
