Free Week of Classes at Steffi Nossen School of Dance

Steffi Nossen School of Dance Will Hold Free Open House Week January 14 - 19

Experience the Joy of Dance at the Steffi Nossen School of Dance Free Week of Dance Open House. January 14th – 19th every class has an open door. Start the New Year dancing! Try unlimited age and level appropriate classes. Experiment with a new technique or rediscover an old favorite.

The school offers a Young Movers Program; a program of Core Classes in Modern, Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Hip-Hop for kindergarten through teens; and a program of level-based technique classes in Modern, Ballet, and Jazz. A pre-professional program of Master Classes leads to a variety of performing groups culminating in the Steffi Nossen Dance Company, a group selected by audition and teacher recommendation.

Try one of our Classes for Young Movers:

Parents & Toddler classes are a fun and creative way for our youngest dancers, ages 1 – 3 years, and their parents/caretakers to express their unique personalities through movement. Children can release energy, improve balance and coordination, and develop gross motor skills while opening their imagination through creative movement and musical games. Parents join the fun!
Creative Movement for Pre-Schoolers focuses on basic movement fundamentals and the development of fine and gross motor skills and musicality while learning about shapes, levels and dynamics. Structured improvisation games and exercises encourage creativity and self-awareness while providing an excellent introduction to the future study of all dance techniques.
Ballet/Tap Combo introduces 3-5 year olds to the basic vocabulary and positions of classical Ballet while also teaching basic rhythm and steps of Tap.

Boys Movement gives athletic boys in grades 1-4 a high energy class of their own to explore movement and feel the freedom of expression.

Or our adaptive dance classes:

Moving Wheels and Heels is a program of dance classes for dancers of all physical, developmental, and emotional abilities. We have a class for young children 4 – 7 years of age on Tuesdays and Monday classes for tweens and teens and for adults.
Parkinson’s Dance, a weekly dynamic and fun hour of dance addressing the concerns of Parkinson’s: balance, flexibility, gait and confidence taught by dancers trained in the internationally acclaimed Mark Morris Dance for PD method. Bring a partner of friend and enjoy moving to the music you love. Stand up or sit down as you wish!
Steffi Nossen classes take place Monday through Saturday at our studios at the Music Conservatory of Westchester on Central Ave, White Plains - across the street from the Westchester County Center.

Greenhook-Ginsmiths-Banner

Join Zachys Friday, January 18th from 4 to 7pm to taste what The Wall Street Journal dubbed “one of the boldest, most interesting Gins out there.” Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin is made from organically grown New York State Wheat, Tuscan Juniper, Coriander, Chamomile, Elderflower, Citrus, Thai Blue Ginger, Ceylon Cinnamon, Orris Root and Elderberry. Greenhook’s unique 300-liter Copper Pot Still was custom engineered to work under a vacuum, which allows the them to distill at lower temperatures.

SHS Drama Club Presents Two One Act Plays

The Scarsdale High School Drama Club will be putting on two one-act plays! The drama, Property Rites, is directed by Matthew Kutzin, and the comedy, Show and Spell, is directed by Jamie Robelen.

Property Rites: Kyle Macmanus has invested millions in a high-tech work of art -- fifteen human-figure sculptures programmed to perform thousands of movements, monologues, dialogues, and more. But just when Kyle is about to sell the sculpture, it malfunctions: the figures are alive. As each one struggles to achieve autonomy, they begin a fatal race against their desperate owner's destructive plan.

Show and Spell: Five middle schoolers take on overzealous parents, crazy coaches, and nostalgic relatives as they prepare for the annual spelling bee in this insightful comedy for young actors. With contestants that range from an unflappable cheerleader who cheers all her words to the anxiety-prone daughter of a movie star, spelling the words correctly may be the least of these kids' worries. This play wonderfully illustrates the pressure that kids feel to compete, and the family support that makes it all bearable.

Performances will be in the Scarsdale High School auditorium on Friday, January 18th and Saturday, January 19th at 7:30pm.
Tickets are available here or at the door.

But that’s not all… The WRT youth choir, Chabibeat, will join in song with the Mount Vernon’s Edward Williams Elementary School Amazing Afternoons Chorus to lend beautiful young voices to the service as well.

Movie Screening: The Last Speech

JFK TheLastSpeech AmazonOn Sunday February 10th at 3pm the Scarsdale Forum, the League of Women Voters Scarsdale and the Scarsdale Library will be screening the film JFK: The Last Speech at the Scarsdale Women's Club. The film explores the dramatic relationship between two seminal Americans—President John F. Kennedy and the poet Robert Frost—which reached its tragic climax in a surprising encounter with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev at the height of the Cold War. Born out of these events is Kennedy’s remarkable speech about poetry and power, which alters the life course of a group of Amherst college classmates who witness this compelling address and continue to exemplify in their contemporary lives a portrait of challenges facing America.

See the website here:

Neil Bicknell, a former Scarsdale resident and Amherst College graduate said about the film, "When my classmates and I initiated this project during our 50th Amherst College reunion, we were motivated by the conviction that President Kennedy’s words are more important today than when he spoke them to us on October 26, 1963. We felt it important to take JFK’s words, message and spirit to the American public.”

Mr. Bicknell and a fellow classmate, Mark Sandler, both of whom were in attendance for President Kennedy's speech, will introduce the film and answer questions after the screening.

One other piece of Scarsdale trivia...In 1956, just after the opening of the library on Olmsted Road, Robert Frost visited Scarsdale and addressed the community.

Please join us for this exciting event at the Scarsdale Women's Club on Sunday, February 10th at 3pm.
