After School Clubs

Spring Session (I) Runs February 26 through March 30, 2018




Improv Storytelling Club - Grades 1-4 

Using improv, narrative story development, theater games, music, and movement, children will learn the fundamentals of acting and performing techniques. They will learn to channel their natural creative abilities into powerful authentic characters. They will also develop peer collaboration, and learn to work within and support the entire ensemble while developing strong acting skills all while having a blast! 


The program is led by Mark and Hara Lewis of Kids Interactive Studio Ensemble (KITE), who have been working with children in Waldorf schools for over 20 years and teaching KITE acting for students for over 12 years. 



Chess Club - Grades 4-8 

(Grades 4-5 with teacher approval)


This club is for beginning and experienced players. Newcomers will learn the rules of the game, and more experienced players will move beyond that to dive into chess strategy, technique and style!  There will be something challenging for all involved. The class will be fun and upbeat and will include game play, puzzles, and group activities. 


The Chess Club is led by chess mentor, Brian Julian, who began his chess career in 2010 working for an after-school program that services under privileged children in the Compton area. He has since brought chess clubs to many schools and summer programs around the L.A. area.
