Episode 19: DeMoya Watson Brown Talks About Her Career and Teaching at Camp Arena Stage


Each spring, parents face a challenge – finding a summer camp for their children. Children between the ages of 8 and 15 who are interested in the arts, and live in the Washington, D.C. area are truly fortunate. Camp Arena Stage offers more than 75 exciting multi-arts activities, including improv, a cappella singing, filmmaking, rock band, musical theater, costume design, world dance, and much, much more. And there’s a bonus. Students in the camp have the opportunity not only to learn from some of the best artist-educators in the D.C. area, but also from professionals who perform regularly at Arena and other theatrical venues. DeMoya Watson Brown is one of the camp’s outstanding arts enhancers who will be at the camp this summer. She’s a former Rockette who is well know to D.C. audiences from her performances in Signature Theatre’s Crazy for You and Jelly’s Last Jam. In Ford Theatre’s production of The Wiz, she played the Tornado! DeMoya talks with Woman Around Town’s Editor Charlene Giannetti about her career and what she’s looking forward to teach the young people who sign up for Camp Arena Stage.
