With a new theme every week, activities will include warm-ups, theater games, and improvisations that bring people together in a nurturing, memorable way. This week's theme: Frog and Toad, George and Martha, Toot and Puddle, Henry and Mudge… these friends go together like peanut butter and jelly! We are sure to make new friends this week as we share these stories of friendship, play theater games, and explore creative movement together! (For children ages 4 - 6)

Are you one of the many folks who don't feel "strong enough" to start aerial training? This class is the preparation you've been looking for!
