We offer art and science classes for all ages, and many classes connect the two disciplines. We also have hands-on studios: a woodshop, a ceramics studio, an art room, a theater, and a science studio. The focus of our classes is the direct exploration of many media with innovative, highly-trained instructors. We encourage experiential learning and aim to deepen participants' connection with the natural world. During school breaks, we offer highly interactive camps that cover many disciplines.

I have been teaching dance to toddlers-adults since 1993 throughout San Francisco. I bring multicultural dances from around the world into my classes and incorporate creative movement so that everyone can experience moving together and finding their own unique movement. I encourage people to work in partners and groups to create their own choreography. I work with teachers to connect our curriculum. I also have a Hip Hop/World dance group that performs in Carnaval and other community events.
