[July 07, 2010]  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.

Avery Soileau, founder of Soileau's "The Bayou Blend Seasoning," is cooking up a feast for anyone wanting to learn to cook Cajun style. Adults, grab your friends and experience something totally new to the Lincoln area. Want a taste of "de bayou" but don't trust "'dem alligators"? Never fear, Soileau is here to show you how to prepare some real Cajun food in the safety of your own home! Avery will showcase a few traditional dishes from the heart of Cajun country while sharing some comical anecdotes and a bit of Cajun history.

On the menu is Shrimp Etouffee served with Corn Maque Choux (pronounced "corn mock shoe"), a fried and smothered corn dish, and Bayou Bread, a garlic-type bread featuring Avery's mild spices. Dishes will be prepared in front of his guests as they watch Avery work his Cajun magic. Generous samples of the dishes will be portioned out as well. Door prizes will be awarded to a few lucky guests. Class size is limited, so sign up early. The group will congregate in the craft room on Tuesday evening, July 27, at 7 p.m.
