Workshop on Access – Physical and Programmatic – at Providence Children’s Museum

April 28th, 2016

Cultural Access New England (CANE)

invites you to:

“ACCESS: Steps Forward to Inclusion”

How do we look at our institutions and the barriers that prevent full inclusion? Is meeting ADA compliance satisfactory? Do you think people with disabilities don’t attend your programs? Is it always about money?

Addressing policy and the need for institutional buy-in, Cultural Access New England (CANE) will facilitate a lively discussion for cultural organizations wanting to go beyond regulatory requirements and broaden community outreach, develop strategic plans, and create inclusive environments.  Information regarding regulations and resources will be present in a workshop designed to support the Executive Director AND the Volunteer.

latin dance teacher needed in Westerly

April 15th, 2016

I need to find a dance teacher who can teach Latin Dances usually done in social setting:

salsa, merengue, or cumbia,( or other suggestions) but keeping it appropriate for 8th graders.

 

On Monday afternoons I have my 2- 8th grade classes back to back, each of them has about 20 students

 

one class is from 12:30-1:30 the other from 1:30-2:30, each class has their own lesson for an hour that day.  I don’t have a movement space but the way Westerly Middle School is set up, I probably could have access to the “pod” area.  Its a decent size area with 5 classrooms sort of bordering it.  If that didn’t work I was going to try to arrange to use the cafeteria.

 

It doesn’t have to be a one time experience, I can do a couple of Mondays…
