Our Fall 2018 performance
For our end of session performance, Sunday, December 16, 2 PM we combine our SJS dance and drama students WITH our students who rehearse at the Eliot into one big production.  

General notes on each offering:
Fitness:  Lead teacher Rebecca Griffin is also a mom of three very active boys.  Becca appreciates the challenges that parents face with teaching our children to live a healthy lifestyle while juggling a busy life. Our goal is to instill some basic understandings of what it means to be fit and fun strategies for staying fit.  Each week we explore a variety of activities that we can do to be fit. Students participate in a number of wicked fun activities including playing with balls, parachute, games of tag, dance games, stretching, and much, much more! 
Drama:  Lead teacher Ingrid Oslund has an impressive resume of all things theatre!  She graduated from Suffolk University with her undergrad, and from Emerson with a Master’s degree in drama.  Each week, Ingrid will be mentoring Sara Kerr and Victoria Isorri in leading the groups in a variety of theatre games and activities. We will perform at the end of the session.   Creativity, confidence, teamwork, audience etiquette, and fun are all things we focus on. 

Dance:  Lead teacher Ingrid Oslund also has an impressive dance resume and has worked with children in Dance in the North End for the past 7+ years.  Ingrid will be mentoring Victoria Isorri in leading the groups each week in several different dances – the styles are Hip Hop, Ballroom basics, and jazz.  We will be performing at the end of the session with the dance classes.

You are my best marketing, please share with your friends and neighbors.

Based directly on feedback from you: 

"Miss Becca, we need something on Tuesdays",

"Miss Becca, we need you to make it so my parents who live really far away, and who just can't possibly relate to city living, can get our child a useful and meaningful gift that doesn't clutter our apartment",

"Miss Becca, we need to be able to drop in to classes.  Sometimes we're sick, sometimes we're travelling, sometimes we just can't get out of the house!",

"Miss Becca, we love your classes, please offer more",

"Miss Becca, we love that we can drop in, it's so convenient, you should charge $20 for drop ins, it's totally worth it"
