Spring is the season of growth and beginnings, and Green Street is providing many opportunities to plant the seed of inspiration! With new class session starting on Monday, February 21, now is the time to break out of comfort zones to try something new. Transform stick figures into masterful oil paintings, evolve from "the Robot" and "the Macarena" to more complex dance moves, or learn how to shed some convincing tears in an acting class. If you have little ones at home, get silly with them in a Wiggle Worms music session or help them become graceful ballerinas in Children's Ballet.
This season, Green Street will host the Sunday Salon Discussion series of stimulating lectures that touch upon a wide variety of issues and interests. From politics to pop music, the Queer Arts Series will be addressing many pertinent topics that the queer community faces today. Join in the discussion about the ethics of stem cell research or discover the parallels between Yiddish and Anglo-American folk music at one of our Sunday Salons.

All classes and events are held at Green Street Arts Center located at 51 Green Street in Middletown. For more information or to register call 860-685-7871, click here, or visit www.greenstreetartscenter.org.

We played games, made cards for our friends and family, learned some Valentine's Day-related sign language (thanks, Sign Language House!), made crepes and decorated cookies. Happy Valentines' Day from NEAT mentoring!

We sang, we danced, and we got to try a whole lot of cool percussion. Best of all, we got to see how music from different countries can be closely connected – even when those places are oceans apart.
Our next event is February 26th 10:30-1:00 at the Green Street Arts Center. The workshop will be on Song-dances from Folk USA! Come learn some fun group dances that have been around FOREVER in our very own U.S.ofA. Bring your singing voices and your stomping feet… and a little something for the potluck lunch.
