Merrill Community Arts Center Miss Lori's Studio

Aspire Music Academy and Merrill Community Arts Center are proud to offer a full set of summer camp experiences for students of all ages.  Our “Summer Sizzle” programs in summer of 2017 were a smashing success!

We offer summer performing arts camp opportunities for beginners through advanced performers. Sing, Dance, Act, Perform – and Learn! Camps run all summer long for every age group. 


Aspire Music Academy groups each have a one-week intensive summer camp to work on new songs and routines for Fall term. 


Our very own Miss Lori also instructs the Merrill Arts Center two-week long Summer Stock camp for high school and middle school students.


Please check this page in early 2018 for the full lineup of summer opportunities and the chance to enroll while space is available!

Aspire Music Academy – Show Choir Intensive Camps

Rise Up as Aspire Music Academy and Miss Lori’s Studio proudly present the summer sessions of its year-round show choir experience. Students already enrolled in Aspire are invited to hone their skills and gain more confidence in performing, while adding new material for next Fall Term performances. New students are welcome to join as well, in order to be placed in the Fall term groups. A fun “Friends & Family” performance will conclude each week-long intensive. Aspire show choirs are about singing, dancing and performing for an audience. Come and aspire with us!
