2019-2020 Session 2

Capoeira – (Mondays) – Come learn the African-Brazilian art of Capoeira! Equal parts dance, acrobatics, martial arts, and music; 100% awesome! The class will introduce students to Capoeira’s playfulness through animal-like movements set to the music of traditional Brazilian percussion. In addition to the physical movements, students learn basic phrases, numbers and songs in Portuguese as they build self-esteem, mutual respect, strength, and flexibility in a disciplined and safe class environment.

Little Scientists – (Tuesdays) – This program is designed to spark the curious nature of young children. Our Little Scientists will enjoy engaging demonstrations, perform fun science experiments and discover how science can help us to better understand the world around us. The experience will be an interactive, hands-on exploration of specific science topics based on biology, chemistry, physics and earth sciences.

Chess – (Wednesdays) – Unlock the mind through storytelling! There are proven and profound benefits of chess for children of all ages (including those as young as three years old). Our mission is to extend these benefits through the power of storytelling. The children will experience an unforgettable and interactive learning environment and in the process will learn to play and fall in love with the game of chess. The biggest benefit will be the development of strategic thinking and, more importantly, emotional intelligence.

Kinder Dance – (Thursdays) – This developmental dance program teaches the basics of ballet, tap, jazz, acrobatics and creative movement. Our experienced coach will stress the development of physical and language skills, imagination and socialization while building self confidence and self esteem. The children will learn creative modern and multicultural dance skills while also learning age appropriate educational concepts. Every class will feel like a party!

Soccer – (Fridays) – Making the world’s most popular sport fun and simple! It is our goal to teach soccer skills in a fun, non-competitive, educational environment. Our philosophy is to use soccer to nurture, to build self-confidence, and to develop teamwork in every class. Classes will be held indoors or outdoors (weather permitting).
