Arts resources for families

Even though this is a difficult time, this is also a great moment of opportunity for

young people to do things that are out of the ordinary to deepen their relationships with art, culture, family and ironically the greater world.

We as teachers are sad that we can not be in the classrooms with our students,

nothing can take the place of hands-on instruction. However, we are trying to make dance learning opportunities available for all levels of dancers. And the creative response from the greater arts world has been inspiring and overwhelming! We hope that you have time to take advantage of some of the amazing offerings that have been put in place by our wonderfull arts institutions! Here are a list of immediate oppertunities both local and nationally that would be beneficial for your children:
