Zumba® Toning is a great way for enthusiasts to sculpt their bodies naturally while having a total blast.

  • - IONA’s music is a unique, acoustic weave of the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany (France), the Isle of Man, Asturies and Galicia (Spain), as well as their transplants in America. Blending songs, dance tunes, and aires into a rich and stunning tapestry, their style is outstanding in an arena where these traditions are seldom intertwined.

    Barbara Ryan and wind section, Bernard Argent. With fiddler Jim Queen (banjo and vocals as well) and bass guitar player Chuck Lawhorn, IONA has become the leading Celtic group in the Mid-Atlantic region.

    They are all seasoned performers: entertainers who involve their audiences with the history and cultural backgrounds of the music, with teaching words to the songs — even those sung in a Celtic tongue, with leading simple Breton dances, with humor, and with every emotion in the spectrum.

    Disney’s Cinderella KIDS, an adaptation of the treasured animated film, will charm its way into your heart and remind you that dreams really can come true.
    Poor Cinderella (Corinne D) is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters ((Jeslyn H, Sydney N, and Laci C), and denied a chance to go to the royal ball. With a little help from her mice friends – and a lot of help from her Fairy Godmother (Ariadine W) – Cinderella’s dreams come true. She goes to the ball, meets the Prince (Brendon M.) and falls in love!

    Sleeping Beauty KIDS
    Based on one of the most treasured Disney animated films of all time, and featuring some of the world’s most memorable songs, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty KIDS is pure, delightful fun.
    It’s Princess Aurora’s (Brielle W) sixteenth birthday, and three fairies – Flora, Fauna and Merryweather – must use their magic to save her from the spell of the evil sorceress, Maleficent (Madalyn C)! The fairies ensure that Aurora only falls into a deep sleep that can be ended with a kiss from her betrothed, Prince Phillip (Trevor M). To prevent Phillip from rescuing Aurora, Maleficent kidnaps and imprisons him. The good fairies are the last hope to free Phillip so that he can awaken Aurora.
