This fall, Centennial Park (600 Nickerson Drive) will be open for Saturday classes with new offerings for kids through a partnership with West Coast Creative Academy. Creative Academy owner Kristin Scott will be offering a slate of nine unique classes at Centennial Park several days a week from September through December.
Designed to nurture your child’s creative spark, these classes include age-appropriate dance offerings that provide students with a sampling of popular dance genres including jazz, hip hop, ballet and tap (for 3 to 11 years old). During the musical theater class, young performers (ages 5-14) will sing, dance and perform in an upbeat and joyful environment as they prepare for a December performance.
Students in the Mini Musician class (ages 5-8) will learn to read music and understand pitch, rhythm and tone through interactive games and games. Music and movement lessons help children develop a musical ear while exploring music and instruments through movement and singing (for ages 1.5-5).
Finally, exploring the song, dance, theater and art of a different country each week is the focus of the Art Around the World lesson series (ages 5-14). Each of these courses is presented in a 12-week session offered at $180 (sibling discounts and scholarships are available). Days and times vary by class.

A new after-school enrichment program called Doodle While You Noodle Homework Club was also added to the Centennial Park schedule this fall. This program is designed for students in grades K-5 to support their learning in the classroom. Students will do their homework with the help and responsibility of Linda Zalamea (aka Mrs. Z), an experienced educator in teaching and tutoring. Doodling, drawing and coloring breaks will be dotted throughout the afternoon to provide a creative break.
The Doodle While You Noodle Homework Club runs Monday, September 12 through November 7 from 2-4:30 p.m. in the Centennial Park Acorn Hall. Registration for this 8-week program is $125 per child (scholarships are available).
Beginning Tuesday, September 6, Centennial Park’s after-school basketball program will resume at Centennial Gym. The gymnasium will be open after school until 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday for this free, no-care activity. Basketballs are available to players.
These are just a few of the highlights of the many activities planned for the fall recreation season.
