WWAC Winter Programs

A more than 15-year tradition of Presidents’ Day programs for children continues with “Fit, Fun & Frolic” on Monday, February 18, 2013, at 11 a.m. at Westlake Porter Public Library, a 45-minute program. The Westlake-Westshore Arts Council (W-WAC) and Porter Library sponsored program brings MorrisonDance from the Teaching Artist Roster of  Young Audiences of Northeast Ohio for children ages 3 to 5 years. The color, rhythm, and repetition of popular  children’s songs will emphasize listening skills and will also focus energy and movement for motor skill development while having fun. For reservation for the half-hour program, call Porter Library 440-250-5471.

In “Catch A Rising Star,” on January 23, 2013, a Baldwin Wallace Music Theatre Senior will provide a glimpse of a  Broadway star- in-the-ma k ing – just before entrance onto the national stage. The 7 p.m. program at Porter Library is a  self-produced, capstone event, showcasing acting, voice, and dance resulting from student studies in the BW Music  Program. The evening provides the young performer an opportunity to “put it all together” just before leaving for New  York City, where BW theatre students, relocate, acquire agents, and begin auditioning. Over 25 BW alumni have  appeared on Broadway over the years, with some there currently. This event, as all W-WAC programs, is free and open to  the public.
