From Diane Kemble, Coolidge Foundation Education Director
Moving and Grooving with the Past
October 8, 9AM-1PM
Moving and Grooving with the Past is a special opportunity on October 8 for imaginative kids from age 7 to 12 who like to move and make up plays of their own. We’ll explore beautiful Plymouth Notch, Vermont, where a little boy named Calvin grew up to be President. Then we’ll bring stories to life through movement, improvisation, and play. Create original works of art while exploring history!
Ashley Hensel-Browning will lead the day’s activities, which go from 9 to 1. Ashley is a dancer, choreographer, and teaching artist who enjoys dancing in schools, studios, theaters, and the great outdoors throughout New England.
Families are welcome to stay and tour the site, enjoy the outdoors, visit the Wilder House Restaurant or bring a picnic. There may even be a brief performance at the end!
For information and to sign up, contact education or 802-672-3389 ext. 3
