Amanda Mentuck is a USA safety certified gymnastics instructor and program director who has been teaching for over 20 years.
Wednesday - I Like to Move It!
A fun musically inspired movement/dance class like no other with Sue Ballou! Children love to move to the familiar songs often heard in their favorite movies, radio stations, classroom, etc. The class is a compilation of original and unique choreographed songs with plenty of time for "free dance.” They delight in expressing themselves while gaining coordination, confidence, personal space awareness teamwork, and focus.
Thursday - Mis Amigos: Spanish
Spanish with Sra. Autumn is an engaging and interactive class where students learn through total physical response. The children are introduced to Spanish language and culture through song, dance, and spoken word. The curriculum is play-based and the children learn through fun, repetitive play. Each week we will sing, dance, act-out and read, as well as play and draw. The language will come alive for children and you will hear them singing the songs they learn long after class ends.
Friday - Art Masterpieces
Dee Burgett introduces children to great artists and their artworks through images and inspiring stories. The children will then create their own masterpieces in the styles of great masters, using similar materials and techniques. They will make artworks in 2 and 3 dimensions, including, but not limited to, paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture and mixed media pieces. Throughout the creative process, the children will be encouraged to explore and experiment with materials and techniques to discover new possibilities for self expression.
