In this Mandarin class, students learn how to have fun with language!  Students will engage in interactive hands-on activities, games, and child-centric lessons while learning conversational Mandarin as well as the Mandarin characters. Our instructor masterfully engages and nurtures children’s innate capacity to absorb language through a progressive series of exciting lessons that are organized around various themes. Children learn to sing and dance, as they learn a language through verbal, visual, and tactile associations.

Musicals: Aladdin

Come be part of the magic of Aladdin! Let your imagination soar while we embark on this adventure to a Whole New World! Taught by the pros at the DramaZone, this class features songs, dances, and scenes from the hit Broadway show! Each class teaches singing, dancing, and acting while preparing a show for friends and family during the last class. Group numbers are emphasized and our goal is to have fun while bringing out your child’s talents.  Singing teaches rhythm and math; acting teaches diction and promotes confidence; and dancing teaches coordination and helps with flexibility. No experience necessary.

Science Lab

Come join the fun in Studio with Ms. Sarah Bogdan, as she guides your child on a journey through many scientific explorations. Students will use the scientific method of “observation, measurement, and experiment” as well as the “formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses.” Get ready to dig deep, test your theories, and prove your hypotheses! Price includes all materials.


Scooter Pie Rolling Fitness

Children love to roll! Prepare your child for the basis of all roller sports with this full-body aerobic workout, designed to develop balance, coordination, focus, strength, and stability. Taught by the experts at the DramaZone, this whirling class is filled with fun exercises, games, and obstacle courses.


Our little sculptors create three-dimensional objects d’art by learning how to shape and combine materials. Students enjoy working materials by removal (such as carving) or assembling by using glue. Our artists, guided by Ms. Mitchell, a studio art major, will be forming, collaging, and gluing using clay, dough, wood, soap, paper, tape, beans, foam, and stone in this wonderfully creative class. Happy sculpting!
