This is an incredible opportunity to not only learn techniques from the best but to get a chance to ask them your questions as well.
The first class will take place on October 26 from 9-11 am; all participants are to wear comfortable clothes they can dance in. There is limited space.
Our 1-3 grade participants are excited to showcase their performance of Sleeping Beauty with all of you this Thursday and Friday beginning at 6:30 pm both nights. Under the direction of Mrs. Rosemarie Redman, we look forward to sharing this timeless classic with all of you. Tickets can be purchased at: teachtix.com
On Friday last week, Emma Lawrence, a WPS Junior, showcased her very own play, Young Women, at the Orlando Shakes Theatre. The show was about the struggle young women go through in today’s society and highlighted the story of six different women. The show was exceptional and showcased the kind of talent we have here at WPS and within our Fine Arts programs. Keep making us proud, Emma. Well done!
