ASA Skateboard Advanced class

By Valérie Asensio

Our advanced skateboard class is happy to welcome Jack!

In this photo sequence you can see him doing a “Frontside 180” off of the black box.

Jack is a great kid and a good team mate, always willing to help setting up the ramps, cones and helping his fellow skaters do better.  He is a great inspiration for all the other kids and we are happy to have in our class.

ASA On s’amuse au théâtre

ASA: On s’amuse au théâtre

Today was first day of Theatre class! Woo Hoo!  The students enjoyed learning about the different directions on the stage and how to exaggerate movement so it’s bigger than life by blowing imaginary gigantic bubbles in different directions and “watching” them float to the sky!

If you are interested in having your child join the class, we can get more children to learn the basics of theater, activity open to PK1-K on Monday from 3:15-4:15 pm with Susan Hall
