Gymstars

Program takes place during school hours in the Hill Center

Gymstars provides a fun-filled class with exciting skills to learn, brightly colored equipment and choreographed movement routines to motivate and challenge your child, all while offering a tremendous amount of fun! The class starts with lively music and dance designed to stretch and warm up for the favorite part of class—the obstacle course! Walk across the balance beam, roll down the mat, cartwheel over the rainbow. Our young gymnasts are led through an action-packed course of colorful, fun and tactile obstacles, learning a variety of tumbling and sports movement skills as they master the challenges in their path!

music

Timbalooloo

In Timbalooloo classes, instruments from around the world come to life as characters and speak through their music, so children learn to play through the magical act of making instruments talk. Through fun games, stories, songs and movements, the children engage with the rich musical and cultural heritage that this world has to offer — from Tito Puente to Mozart, Willie Nelson to Herbie Hancock.

Created by Kids

Created by Kids is excited to offer our ceramics class at the Dillon Center. The integration of art in a child’s development can advance creativity and imagination while refining important fine motor skills. Clay is an enthralling and tactile medium for children to express their artistic creativity. Students will learn basic skills in hand building pottery. We will introduce a new project or idea each class, presenting different building techniques the children can use as a starting point to create a piece of art that is all their own. Each student will go home with unique projects they will be proud of!
