In this Art and Movement program, participants are exposed to the traditional puppet making and the popular culture of hip-hop dance. Both forms express interest in the variables of movement within the working body (human or puppet) and their respective creation. A great way for parents and children aged 7–12 years old to bond and have lots of fun crafting and dancing together. Mark your calendar and let’s celebrate dance with islandwide activities this month.

Tea Dances for Shakespeare offers poetic gestural movement motifs inspired by sonnets. Participants are given easy to learn whimsical and poetic hand gestures and upper torso movements while sitting pretty on designer chairs. This short learning session would lead right into an on-the-spot public performance. A quartet will play Baroque music to transport participants from the mundane every day into the magical realm of antiquity where dancing is practiced as common as social greetings.
