Fabulous program. Will you or any other groups be having something like this for 15 year olds? My g-kids have attended Movement at Angler and theater at Walking Fish.This is something they would be very interested in . Unfortunately, Emily turned 15 in July and Frankie will be 9 in November. Anything going on for this age group. Great to see this program happening so close to home.
