Fiber Arts with Danielle Miller
Join our very own lovely Blue Rock music teacher, Danielle for some wooly, yarny fun on Wednesday afternoons. Students can learn a new craft (knitting or crocheting), receive help with an existing project they would like to finish, or get advice and ideas to start a new one. We will even learn to make our own yarn from wool using a drop spindle. We will choose a few group projects based on the interests of the participants and it will be a lovely time together.
Yoga with Angeline Montoya
Angeline teaches a fun, nature inspired, and heart-centered kids yoga class with room for exploration and curiosity. She encourages each child to engage and explore through breath work, yoga sequences, and tools to practice mindfulness. As a mom of 2 young boys, she loved how they embraced her yoga practices when she taught them. She hopes to pass on the gift of yoga to our younger generations.
A local mom and herbalist (and current Blue Rock parent!), Angeline has practiced yoga since 1999. She received her 200-hour teacher training through Betsy Kase at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale and Level 1 and 2 Yoga and Mindfulness for Children with Mayuri Gonzalez at Little Flower Yoga in Croton.

Intro to Classical Ballet with Rebecca Balbach
In this class Rebecca will cover the basic fundamentals of classical ballet by introducing the students to its rich history, culture and music. Teaching them the basic positions and movements that condition the dancer’s body with strength, grace and poise.
The owner of Ballet Rockland, Rebecca has studied under principals from Russia’s Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet where she was taught the Vaganova method. She then went on to study in New York City and New Jersey, where she learned a more effective approach that suits a broader range of physical facilities and adapts, as needed, to the anatomy of each dancer. As a dancer herself, she has performed principal, solo and corps roles in several classical and non-classical ballets and finally accepted a full-time position with Connecticut's state ballet company, Connecticut Ballet where she performed five seasons.
