Young dancers learn multi-cultural myths and themes from around the globe and are invited to explore how the tales relate to their daily lives. They take daily classes in ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop and world dance forms and learn challenging choreography in multiple styles. Young dancers imagine, improvise and learn to express themselves through the creation of their own dances as well. Dance, ideas, cultural themes, music, visual art and poetry are woven together in a final performance for family and friends.

This Book Signing/ Meet the Author Event is centered around the daughter of a recovering addict, how she felt growing up & how forgiveness came.

Gaváta is the local Author who wrote Get Yourself Together First which is a true story about forgiveness and restoration. It encourages addicts to get themselves “together” before trying to restore relationships, all the while still encouraging broken families that they can forgive. Through raw and honest storytelling, Gaváta uncover the lie that broken people feel – isolation and shame, or that they are the only ones going through these things. This book serves as encouragement that forgiveness can happen. If someone has suffered at the hands of an addict physically, mentally or emotionally, or if an addict is trying to figure out how to regain trust and receive forgiveness, this book is a must read. It is encouraged that professionals in the field of addiction recovery also consider reading, understanding and incorporating this view into their therapy and group sessions.

Devi Dance Theater retells an amazingly inspiring narrative that
occurred in 1970’s India known as the ‘Chipko’ Movement.
Unarmed women, who were at the bottom of social ladder
courageously wrapped their arms around the trees and
successfully defied the loggers.

This story inspired a ripple effect of ecological resistance
nationally and globally. The axe wielding intruders had to back
off in the face of soul power of these women. This parable of
spiritual reasoning and power known as ‘Chipko Andolan’ is
retold as a homage to the unsung heroines of our time and a
hope for a green planet. It echos the Gandhian principle of
‘Satyagraha’ (soul force) and ‘Ahimsa’ (non-violence).

This project highlights the silent beauty of trees that are a
source of life giving oxygen, soil conservation, shade and
peace. The lyricism of Kuchipudi classical dance manifest the
poetic verses of the Vedas as well as a modern poetry. The
veneration of trees in India is customary as people go to
worship (offer ‘puja’ and tie around the trunk of the tree ‘rakhi’ -
thread of friendship). This beautiful communion of man and
nature is however being challenged by the commercial needs
and greed of the few.

Funded in part by the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.

Explore this 19th-century historic treasure! One of the best remaining examples of a one-room schoolhouse in Montgomery County! 

Built in 1893 in response to the need for a school within walking distance of farms located in the Little Bennett Creek Valley, the Kingsley Schoolhouse served the local, rural farming community until it closed in 1935. Each year, around 20 children ranging in age from 6-12 years old attended the school. Since the immediate area was known locally as Froggy Hollow – due to the large number of frogs that could be heard peeping in the low-lying area – the school acquired the nickname of Froggy Hollow School.

Each week of summer camp will bring new art adventures. Our experienced teaching artists inspire creativity by teaching a variety of art-making techniques, and by exploring the styles of artists to help our campers draw inspiration for their own artwork. The week-long sessions allow for both multi-day and single-day projects, giving our campers the opportunity to work with a variety of materials, including watercolor and tempera paints, clay, plaster, oil pastels, and more. At the end of the week, each child will go home with a portfolio filled with original artwork! Project types include pottery, sculpture, drawing, painting, cartooning, collage, mixed media and more!

Come Explore and Dance Around The World and Into the Stars With Us This Summer!
Created by Lorraine Spiegler, Artistic Director of the CityDance School and Conservatory, CityDance’s themed children and youth camps  offer learning and fun through culture and creativity. Young dancers learn multi-cultural myths and themes from around the globe and are invited to explore how the tales relate to their daily lives. They take daily classes in ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop and world dance forms and learn challenging choreography in multiple styles. Young dancers imagine, improvise and learn to express themselves through the creation of their own dances as well. Dance, ideas, cultural themes, music, visual art and poetry are woven together in a final performance for family and friends.

This Book Signing/ Meet the Author Event is centered around the daughter of a recovering addict, how she felt growing up & how forgiveness came.

Gaváta is the local Author who wrote Get Yourself Together First which is a true story about forgiveness and restoration. It encourages addicts to get themselves “together” before trying to restore relationships, all the while still encouraging broken families that they can forgive. Through raw and honest storytelling, Gaváta uncover the lie that broken people feel – isolation and shame, or that they are the only ones going through these things. This book serves as encouragement that forgiveness can happen. If someone has suffered at the hands of an addict physically, mentally or emotionally, or if an addict is trying to figure out how to regain trust and receive forgiveness, this book is a must read. It is encouraged that professionals in the field of addiction recovery also consider reading, understanding and incorporating this view into their therapy and group sessions.

Devi Dance Theater retells an amazingly inspiring narrative that
occurred in 1970’s India known as the ‘Chipko’ Movement.
Unarmed women, who were at the bottom of social ladder
courageously wrapped their arms around the trees and
successfully defied the loggers.

This story inspired a ripple effect of ecological resistance
nationally and globally. The axe wielding intruders had to back
off in the face of soul power of these women. This parable of
spiritual reasoning and power known as ‘Chipko Andolan’ is
retold as a homage to the unsung heroines of our time and a
hope for a green planet. It echos the Gandhian principle of
‘Satyagraha’ (soul force) and ‘Ahimsa’ (non-violence).

This project highlights the silent beauty of trees that are a
source of life giving oxygen, soil conservation, shade and
peace. The lyricism of Kuchipudi classical dance manifest the
poetic verses of the Vedas as well as a modern poetry. The
veneration of trees in India is customary as people go to
worship (offer ‘puja’ and tie around the trunk of the tree ‘rakhi’ -
thread of friendship). This beautiful communion of man and
nature is however being challenged by the commercial needs
and greed of the few.

Funded in part by the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.

Explore this 19th-century historic treasure! One of the best remaining examples of a one-room schoolhouse in Montgomery County! 

Built in 1893 in response to the need for a school within walking distance of farms located in the Little Bennett Creek Valley, the Kingsley Schoolhouse served the local, rural farming community until it closed in 1935. Each year, around 20 children ranging in age from 6-12 years old attended the school. Since the immediate area was known locally as Froggy Hollow – due to the large number of frogs that could be heard peeping in the low-lying area – the school acquired the nickname of Froggy Hollow School.
