Get your elementary-age kids out of the house and on the move with a fun and FREE dance class, brought to you by two Yakima-area nonprofits: Art In Motion (AIM) and The Seasons Performance Hall.

In a fresh press release, AIM's president, Noel Manderville, says that "each class will be taught by three professional teaching artists. There will be live musical accompaniment for every class and performance."

Registration is required for this two-week course, which is being offered free of charge, and will culminate in a final performance that Manderville says "will explore 'American Roots Music' [with children dancing to] the blues, bluegrass, country, activism, and folk music." Teachers, Administrators, Music Teachers, PTA members, and anyone else wishing to sample an AIM class are also welcomed to attend free workshops.

For more information, contact Manderville directly at (509) 457-6791 or at @noelm@11thavefoundation.org. Register today at 11thavefoundation.org.
