ABC Spanish in Motion (6 months- 4 years) new!

This is a fun and interactive class where parents, caregivers and educators sit with their children to explore the Spanish-language, music, and Latin-American culture. This class is perfect for parents with multiple children of varying ages. Children are exposed to Spanish through songs that create an environment that allows for a long periods of listening and exposure, coupled with call-and-response interactivity requiring physical movement. Parents receive a copy of our own music heard in class to enjoy in the car and at home.

Games, songs, books, sign language, puppets, parachutes and toys of class cultivate curiosity and will stimulate children in rewarding ways. This language adventure can take them for a ride on a train (parachute) through the countries of the Americas, or simply popping burbujas (bubbles) in the bath top with patos (ducks) and ranas (frogs). If your child likes jumping, dancing, and singing this is the perfect class!

This is a fun and interactive class where parents, caregivers and educators sit with their children to explore the Spanish-language, music, and Latin-American culture. This class is perfect for parents with multiple children of varying ages.

Parents receive a copy of our own music heard in class to enjoy in the car and at home.

Games, songs, books, sign language, puppets, parachutes and toys of class cultivate curiosity and will stimulate children in rewarding ways. This language adventure can take them for a ride on a train (parachute) through the countries of the Americas, or simply popping burbujas (bubbles) in the bath top with patos (ducks) and ranas (frogs). If your child likes jumping, dancing, and singing this is the perfect class!

Intermediate/Advanced Fencing (7-12 years)

 

This program builds upon all beginner instruction, and are most valuable when taken after the completion of one year of Beginner Fencing.

Compound attacks and technical terms associated with more advanced fencing moves will be introduced as students develop technique and understanding of the sport. If time allows, members of the class will participate in bouting: practicing with electrical fencing equipment. This practice will allow fellow students to learn score-keeping and refereeing. If students consistently continue with this program, they will have the chance to compete in a fencing tournament that follows the US Fencing guidelines.

Hands-On Art & Self-Expression (19 months-3 years)
One of the most intriguing ways that youngsters express themselves is through art. As children draw, paint and make collages, they are learning about the world. Toddlers are not yet consciously aware of color coordination and spatial relationships, but art can give them a sense of these areas in this stage of their development - and this is only the beginning. Art provides another much-needed outlet for budding young minds, and at the same time it teaches important skills as they express themselves through the use of different materials. With all of these benefits, it's easy to see why encouraging toddlers to be artistic is so important: join us in the art room as we use a rainbow of colors, clay, paint, paste and so much more to pique your child's curiosity and creativity in this exciting multimedia program.
