Fall is such a fabulous time of year at Jitterbug! We are half way through our semesters and have so many fall events for kids and families! Recently many of our classes worked on creating their costumes for their upcoming shows.
Mrs. Ashley's ballet class loved dyeing their shirts and choosing their individual designs! While we work together as an ensemble, we also encourage confidence and individual ideas!
One of our favorite Fall events is our Pumpkins and Pinterest Craft Class. During the class, parents attend with their children and create Halloween cards and fall decorations. We even carved pumpkins and saved our families from a pumpkin goop attack!
The best is yet to come as we welcome in another Pinterest Craft Class, Election Day Camp, and Thanksgiving Break Camps! We always have so much to offer so keep close to see what's next!
We had a small break from our Jitterbug of the Week presentations during September Break camp but we're back! This week our Jitterbug of the week started out as a summer camper and is now in Jitterbug at King Springs Elementary! Let's have a big round of applause for Super Cooper Warren!
Cooper is in Ms. Marisa's class where he loves singing, learning his lines, and mastering the choreography! He is also kind and thoughtful and always has a positive attitude. Way to Go Cooper!
Check back next week to see who our Jitterbug of the Week will be!
Tuesday and Wednesday were full of classic storybook fun! We learned all about Peter Pan, Captain Hook, the Lost Boys, Charlie, Willie Wonka, and a whole cast of characters! The Jitterbug teachers love when the kids come in excited about the story of the day. They accomplish so much each day!
The kids came in on Wednesday ready to explore the wonderful world of Willie Wonka! We talked about our favorite candies and what separates a good nut from a bad nut!
To enter into the factory, each child had to find a golden ticket. Well Ms. Emily's class made their own! They even got to create their own yummy chocolate bars! These mini-performers learned how to work with props and share the props throughout the show!
Mrs. Ashley's class took what they knew of Charlie and the Chocolate factory and created a script for their performance! Each child chose a character and helped write their lines! Look for these awesome kids to be on the big stage soon!
During camp, the kids have the opportunity to created set and prop pieces. Sometimes that even includes pieces that extend into the lobby. Yesterday, Mrs. Ashley's class created a consession stand that sold all types of candy!
This week production has a special job. Each day they hear a new story, write their own script, decide on the run of their show, and find props and costumes! It is quite a task but everyday they rise to the challenge!
Check back for more exciting Broadway fun!
