Spring Class Highlights:

HfA is pleased to continue its most popular classes: In Theatre Kids (4-6yrs), confidence and creative expression are developed through drama games, character building, costume play, and collaboration with peers. Baby Song & Bounce (0-17mo) offers caregivers the opportunity to bond with their little ones through music, and socialize with others in a friendly and relaxed environment.  Disco Ducks (18mo-4yrs) is a music and movement class for caregivers and tots, set to the theme of disco music. In each class you will experience: simple disco dancing, instrument play and exploration, rhythm games, guitar sing-a-long and more! Drama Tweens (7-12yrs), is  a dynamic drama class for kids 7-12yrs that covers improv, character development, mask work, and comedy. Catherine Luce returns on Wednesdays this spring to lead Sculpture Safari- After School Art (7-12yrs). In this session, kids will create a unique and fun papier-mâché animal wall sculpture.

These programs are made possible through the support of the Hutcheson Family in memory of Jane Hutcheson: Champion of the arts.
