Elective Descriptions

Musical Journeys — Mondays
With Briana Brett from Orchestrating Dreams
Children will explore the beauty and diversity of  musical expression from around the world. They will create their own instruments from household materials, using them to raise their voices in song and their bodies in movement.
Multicultural Song and Story Time — Tuesdays
With Nicolas Carter
Children will sing in English and Spanish, dance, and experience soulful multicultural moments, accompanied by the magical sound of a live harp, while enjoying storytelling with puppets made from recycled materials.
Scamper Theater Kids — Wednesdays
With Brooke Jacob
This introduction to drama creates a fun and silly environment, where children will practice using their natural imaginations with movement and dance activities, book-shares, and learning how to bring stories to life with imaginative, acting skills.
Nature as Artistic Inspiration — Thursdays
With Cynthia Jabar
The world outside is blooming! Children will use the natural environment as an inspiration to create art. They will be encouraged to observe the changes in nature, collect natural materials, and create their own artistic masterpieces.
Ballet Fundamentals — Fridays
With Heather White Godfrey from the Dance Project of Washington Heights
This introductory ballet class focuses on developing strength and technique. Each class will combine ballet basics, rhythm exercises, and imaginative play. Students are encouraged to wear ballet shoes, and leotards, tights, or comfortable clothes.
