Attention Adults and Teens: Create your own class with friends and family this summer!
Want to get in the best shape of your life by working out every day this summer?
Want to learn to dance - Hip Hop? Salsa? Modern? Ballet? Tap?
Want to learn how to silk screen t-shirts for your next family or school event? You decide what you want to do. We'll help you make it happen.
STH invites all adults and teens to gather together their own group of 6 people (minimum) and let us find you the perfect teacher and studio space to create a summer program tailored especially for you and your group. This could be a weekend intensive, a one week intensive, or it could be a class that meets several days a week all summer long.
Available times for Adult Summer "Camp" Intensives:
Weekdays before 8:30am & after 5:30pm, and most weekends.
Let your tiniest artists get fired up in a full morning of singing, dancing and make-believing activities, along with story-telling, music-making, and arts and crafts projects taught by three of the neighborhood’s finest master PreK teachers, Stephanie Franck, Mark Lamb and Sarah Pope!
