Pop-Up Perch & Swoop!

With a heat wave on the horizon, we’re all looking for ways to stay chilled-out and entertained.

On Monday, July 2nd, The Center Dance will host its first Pop-Up Perch & Swoop of the summer. And because weather forecasts predict record-breaking temps, this one will be FREE of charge. 

Join us from 10AM-12PM for an air-conditioned morning of art, stories, dance and PLAY! Designed for toddlers and their caregivers, Perch & Swoop offers the best of The Center’s Pre-K creative movement curriculum, bookended by arts and craft activities, a wholesome snack, and play time.

Recommended for toddlers 18 months – 4 years (but older siblings are welcome, too).
Register via email to reserve your spot!
(We’ll cap it at 10 families, so don’t wait!). 

Over the course of July & August, The Center will hold at least 3 more Pop-Up Perch dates (with a COOL summer rate of just $20/class). Our plan is to schedule these for rainy and/or scorching days; to be notified in advance, follow our Facebook Page or request to be added to our Perch mailing list (email thecenterdanceschool@gmail.com). 
Hope to see you there!!
