Dance, dance, dance! Rest up before you come,
because Audra is going to have you dancing like a star! For three
mornings in a row you'll get to experience jazz, ballet and
clogging. Each dancer will also double as their own choreographer!
Let Audra teach you how to apply some new moves to your favorite
song. Special shoes are not needed, but please wear something other
than socks. Previous experience is not necessary. Families and
friends will be invited to a demonstration on the last day.
Teaching this dance class is Audra, the owner of Audra's Studio of
Dance, who is also a master graduate of Dance Educators of America.
She is also the director of the award-winning Flying Feet Cloggers
and Competition Teams. You can't help but notice how much Audra
loves to share her craft with young people. If you are 6 or older,
join us Wednesday through Friday, July 14-16, from 9 a.m. to 10:30.
Lincoln is about to become the location of a serious crime, and
we need all the crime scene investigators we can find! Someone has
stolen Parker, Lincoln Park District's best canine friend. As a
forensic scientist you hold the key to discovering the culprit. The
class will get you into the hands-on world of forensics and
crime-solving as you build your own CSI Crime Kit. You will evaluate
fingerprints and collect evidence at the scene of the crime. Your
well-trained eye will determine who committed this awful crime.
Lead investigator and crime scene expert is Deputy Richard
Montcalm. He has been in law enforcement for 20 years and has also
been the chief of police for the city of Lincoln. He has an
extensive background in teaching at the college level as well.
Investigators need to be third- to fifth-graders. Join the group
Monday through Friday, July 19-23, from 9 a.m. to 10:30.

country while sharing some comical anecdotes and a bit of Cajun
On the menu is Shrimp Etouffee served with Corn Maque Choux
