  • Overview

    Story Alive! is an early-learning program that uses storytelling, music, movement and crafting as an introduction to arts appreciation. The sessions draw from performing arts-themed books and a wide variety of music to teach creative movement. To wrap up each session, the participants have an opportunity to express themselves by creating take-home craft projects related to each week’s story. Come to the Center with your preschooler to help bring the Story Alive!
