After School Arts Program with HFH
In 2010, 2011 we helped fund yearlong, weekly dance classes for Saratoga elementary, middle and high school students, with a culminating performance. The grant has allowed children to see a Broadway show, a first for most of the children. Groups of children saw ImaginOcean, The Addams Family, and Sister Act. At the Prospect Family Inn, the KidCare grant purchased six child-friendly digital cameras and photography kits for the children to use on field trips, and to document daily activities and special events. We continued this program in 2011-2012 which culminated in a talent show that you can check out here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQRrLnE1lUE&feature=plcp
