Today's show:  Sciencetellers!  This year, Sciencetellers present:  Super Heroes!  In this original collection of slightly twisted tales, all the teachers at school are suspected to have superpowers! Join us on a hilarious new adventure where, just like in science, things aren't always quite what they seem. We will launch things through the air, send them plummeting toward the ground, and even make things transform and disappear right before your eyes!  Throw on your labcoat and get ready to experience forces and reactions through several exciting, hands-on experiments that will have the audience laughing, learning and having fun! Enjoy this spectacular adventure and be swept away to a place where truly 'super' heroes really do exist!

Dance Me a Story

Friday, August 28th @ 10:30am

Taught by Lisa Oster, a dance teacher from Darlington Arts Center.

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. I use dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). I also incorporate a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down."

Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own. --Follow Ms Lisa & "Dance Me a Story"

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED & opens at 10am on August 1st as space is limited! For ages 2-5
