Moving and Grooving with the Past: Oct. 8

From Diane Kemble, Education Director, Coolidge Foundation

Ashley Hensel-Browning, dancer, choreographer, and teaching artist will be at the Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site on Saturday, October 8 from 9 to 1 to lead an engaging workshop for children from age 7 through 12, Moving and Grooving with the Past. She’s especially interested to have children interpret Coolidge’s Vermont is a State I Love speech, and come up with versions of their own. They’ll also actively explore the barns, schoolhouse, and Coolidge’s home.

Stories will be brought to life through movement, improvisation, and play. Create original works of art while exploring history!

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@calvin-coolidge.org or 802-672-3389  ext. 3

Cost is $10 and students should bring a lunch. Meet at the new Education Center at the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site, 3780 Rt. 100A in Plymouth, VT.
