The Webb Center’s two sessions of Camp Imagination is kicking off on June 1. A first-time teacher making his debut during the 13th annual Camp Imagination is Shane Hancock. Owner of ‘Dragon Legacy Kung Fu’ in Wickenburg for the past 3 years, Hancock will be teaching Kung Fu to 4th – 12th students.
Kung Fu is a Chinese term referring to any study or learning that requires patience, energy, and time to complete. Today, the term Kung Fu is more commonly used to refer to the Chinese martial arts.
Students will have fun learning fundamental movements that will enhance their focus, balance and coordination. “Also, it is important to motivate the students to be more active and instill in them the importance of good character,” says Hancock. “Teaching and sharing what I have been blessed to learn and benefit from in my life is as great a passion for me as is training in the Martial Arts. A big part of my mission here in Wickenburg is to help strengthen our community one Black Belt Leader at a time.”
Hancock has been training in the martial arts for 24 years and specifically in Kung Fu for the past 11 years. He has trained in various styles including Chinese Kenpo, Kickboxing, Wrestling, Traditional Kung Fu and Tai Chi.
Camp Imagination is a two-week summer arts camp, where students take classes in the performing arts, culminating in a live performance. All campers will star in the musical Disney’s Aladdin on Friday, June 12 (Session 1) and Friday, June 26 (Session 2) at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students, and are available through the Webb Center’s Box Office at (928)684-6624. For more information about Camp Imagination, visit www.dewpac.org.
