  • Amazing Animals / Denise Anderson

    Do you like animals? Do you like drawing and cartoons? Then this is the place for you! We're going to learn all about animals and make some simple, fun cartoons too! Every week we’ll learn all about a new animal - what they eat, what they look like as babies, where they live and what awesome qualities make them special. Then we’ll use Google Whiteboard to draw pictures of our animal friends on our computers (or mobile devices). Every week Miss Denise will take everyone’s drawings (and even some of your voices too) and turn them into a short group animation to share at the beginning of the next week. (They’ll also be posted to our Amazing Animals Drive too, in case you want to download them.) You can choose whether you want to tell a silly story about your animal, or if you want to show us a true, cool fact about them in animated form. No special skills are necessary, just access to our Google Meet and Whiteboard via a computer or mobile device. We will be opening the next session to K students - please note that this class involves reading aloud and using technology to draw independently.

  • Guitar

    Established in 2008, EzraGuitar is a guitar program designed to give kids the opportunity to study with some of the greatest classical guitarists of this generation, while using a method of learning designed especially for them. Our group classes are the core of the EzraGuitar method. These classes are built on the philosophy of Maoz Ezra, that music should be taught in the "language of children" and tailored to their natural abilities. By studying with this method and philosophy, it is our goal that children will connect to music making in a natural and organic way. Through creative games and ensemble work, children will leave each lesson with a sense of accomplishment and musical knowledge that will remain with them as a foundation for any future musical endeavors. EzraGuitar Kids Group Guitar Lessons (Grades K-5) We teach small group lessons for children in grades K- 5 (*kids are grouped according to age & level, the course is cumulative.)

Ensemble work: From the beginning children will be learning to play in an ensemble. This group work puts emphasis on listening with sensitivity and working together. Performance: At the end of each session, students will perform in a concert. Performance is a major part of studying music, it teaches the student about building self confidence and the joy of sharing music. Teachers: Classes are taught by the world class faculty of EzraGuitar! *Please note that students will be scheduled by EzraGuitar into class times that are appropriate for their age and level.

  • Mindful Capoiera / Afro Brazilian Arts

    Capoeira, a dance developed by Africans brought to Brazil as slaves over 400 years ago, incorporates the speed and agility of martial arts, dancing and acrobatics and teaches a philosophy of resolving conflict without the use of force. Each class focuses on creating a supportive and safe space for learning. Our mission is to inspire FLC - fitness, leadership, and community. Our method works by developing FDR - focus, discipline, and respect. All lessons begin when students show FDR, focus on the teacher or leader, discipline to stay with the lesson, and respect for themselves, for each other and for the teacher. Students learn capoeira's basic moves, sequences with a partner, and how to play the "game" of capoeira; we never say fight or spar. There is no contact in our capoeira lessons except to shake hands with our partners. In a year long program, students will learn 10 capoeira movements, sequences with a partner, 5 songs in Portuguese, basic capoeira rhythm on instruments, and about capoeira's context in the history in Brazil. In addition, students gain confidence in their physical abilities and develop learning and life skills to achieve success in school and in other areas of their lives.
