October is a month to SPARKLE and SHINE and I”m not kidding. Jackson School of the Arts has some events that you won’t want to miss.
Sparkle & Shine Day
A Special Free Event for Kids to Discover the Arts. Saturday, October 12 from 2:00 to 3:30PM
Sometimes we need to help introduce our children to new things. Our Sparkle & Shine Day is a perfect opportunity for this. Free to try. Fun and supportive atmosphere for kids. All you need to do is go to Jacksonarts.org and register for this free event. It’s funny how many times I think I’m not going to like something and then I try and it and it’s so much fun! I recently tried clogging, a class we teach here at JSA. It was so much more than I thought! I kind of mocked clogging, but now that I know – watch out! It is high energy and a fantastic workout.
JoJo Siwa Dance Camp Friday, October 11th from 5:00 to 7:30 PM
This kids night out is conveniently scheduled for a Friday night and lasts for 2 1/2 hours so parents can sneak off for a night on the town. Our Dance Camp attendees will not only enjoy a dinner of pizza and fruit, but will learn some dance moves to JoJo Siwa’s upbeat music (which will then lead to a performance for parents when it’s time to pick them up). We also have some fun art projects planned for them as well. Cost: $25 for 2 1/2 hour party with dinner and supplies included!
Master Class – Ballet Session – only $5
Saturday, October 19 from 1 to 2PM Ages 7 to 18
Presented by Wendi Dubois, Artistic Director at Ballet Chelsea
In this one-hour session, Ms. Dubois will help you develop your own skill set in a non-competitive and fun environment. This is a great choice for students who wish to learn about or refine the fundamentals of ballet or those who are looking to refresh or recharge their technique. For those that have some ballet experience, this is a great way to challenge your ballerina and expose them to new material.
Just a few of the things happening at Jackson School of the Arts this October and I didn’t even mention Halloween. It isn’t too late to register for classes so you can join in on the fun. I’m a huge fan of the autumn season and I love seeing all the wonderful events that our community partners are doing for the fall. Hope to see you and all the little pumpkins this month.
