Almost, Maine

a real romantic comedy by John Cariani
This is a play to love—for its quirkiness and its unabashed romantic spirit.

Tap into Spring at Garden Street Dance with workshop for special needs children

Garden Street Dance is excited to offer a free special Tap Dance Workshop for students with disabilities on Saturday, April 18.

Boys and girls, 7 and older, are encouraged to join the fun in the class, from 2 pm – 3 pm, that will be led by instructor, Jessica Kelly. Jessica received her BS in Early Childhood Special Education and holds both a NYS and NJ Students with Disabilities Teaching License.

As a cause very near and dear to her heart, she believes, that with the right supports all students should be given the opportunity to be successful, especially in dance.

Jessica has been tapping since her early years and grew up studying with renowned Tap professionals. She recently teamed up with instructor, Christopher Erk and his nonprofit organization, The Tap Factor, to work Best Buddies on a dance program to teach young adults how to tap. Best Buddies, a mentor and social group that partners individuals with disabilities and peers to foster inclusion in schools and the workplace. See the inspiring video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNUPuI4PMO8&authuser=0

In Garden Street Music’s one hour workshop, students will learn basic tap steps in both movement and name, experience the opportunity to improvise and create their own sounds, and learn sample choreography. Students will be given the opportunity to build confidence and take ownership of their dancing in this fun program that will delight all dancers.

The Garden Street Music class is limited to 8 students and registration is required. To enroll, please email Annie at dance@nullgardenstreetmusic.com.

Run the Lincoln Tunnel Challenge with HFA on April 19 Benefit Special Olympics

Hoboken is a diverse community with many different families, incomes, points of view and political loyalties. On April 19 we’re uniting as one community to show our support for Special Olympics. Join Team HobokONE and help Special Olympics continue to help neighborhoods like Hoboken provide specialized athletic programs for youths with special needs.

Developmentally delayed and cognitively impaired individuals gain the same benefits as typical children when it comes to sports – social skills, team spirit, athletic fundamentals and most importantly, a fun experience. For the past several years HFA has helped bring more Special Olympics programming to our community including basketball, swimming, baseball and the Young Athlete Program, which helps instill athletic fundamentals in children ages 2-7.

So get in the community spirit and join HobokONE today. Team members get advanced race packet pick up, team tees and an after party at City Bistro. The race is open to all levels of runners. Register today and help HobokONE be the biggest, best team in the race.
