Monday, November 9, 2015

Lightning, twisters and hail—oh my! This dynamic show reveals the science of weather—to the extreme. Where does our weather come from, and what factors make it a sunny day or a blustery one? We’ll make a cloud, explore thunder and lightning, and even create snow. We promise a stormy ending to this show as we demonstrate the power of a Tornado.
The Three Ashka:
Thursday, November 19, 2015
The Three Aksha is a classical Indian dance company based at Girard College in Philadelphia that uses creative movement as a tool to encourage cultural understanding and teaches about Indian culture through a style of classical Indian dance known as Bharatanatyam. They have performed in major cities across the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, and India. The Three Aksha will introduce India and its rich heritage of classical dance. The dancers will present a few pieces of Bharatanatyam style dance and then guide the audience to try out the movements and facial expressions that form the story telling aspect of this dance form. These movements will culminate in a small dance that the audience is able to perform together. The assembly will end with a question and answer session.
