COSMIC CAPERS - STORY MOVERS EDITION
This drama class focuses on body movement and spacial intelligence.

Legos, Knex, marble runs and more encourage kids to build and create. Each week, Studio Bella will bring new experiences with new building mediums to play and build with. Collaboration and problem solving will take place through free building and challenges. These mini architects will be building structures and confidence through Building Bonanza!

TENNIS AND GOLF
This Tennis and Golf Enrichment is taught by Kidokinetics. Coaches will spend half of the semester on each sport as Preschoolers learn the skills and drills associated with each. Kidokinetics classes are designed to provide fun, healthy exercise, games, nutrition and sports activities. The focus of each activity is to create a varied, fun session each day and using the sport activity to build skills relating to gross motor, right/left brain stimulation, forward/backward movement, crossing the mid-line, coordination and self-confidence. Kidokinetics’ fun fitness coaches bring the great curriculum and the children bring the fun!
Boys and girls will learn the fundamentals of hip-hop, jazz, and ballet while developing coordination and balance. Instructors inspire a passion for dance and foster self-expression through movement. This enrichment is taught by Stretch-n-Grow.
Super Sports with Kidokinetics!
Cosmic Capers is a creative drama class that uses improvisation and characterization to guide students as they build their personalized drama skills. Through the fun-filled process of imaginative play, players become comfortable and courageous. Improvised drama is considered an essential component to developing social and emotional intelligence, and language skills in young students. The skills they learn today will be part of how they meet the challenges of tomorrow.
CREATE WITH STEAM
Join Studio Bella each week as we fearlessly create with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math!) Each week, students will create a project or process revolving around art and have 1-2 other fields fused into the fun! This enrichment is taught by creative instructors from Studio Bella.
