Ashcroft Arts Centre Open Day

We had a really interesting day yesterday. The Ashcroft Arts Centre in Fareham had a taster day for lots of their different activities and courses, and we went along with our friends Carole, Tess and Brodie over at Adventures in Wonderland

Hannah, Tess and Brodie took part in a 'Street Dance' workshop which they loved. They learnt lots of street moves and put them together in sequence finishing with a 'streetpose'  (the girls were frighteningly good at that part lol). 

Next they did a drama workshop. I did think that Hannah might be too shy to really get anything out of the drama lesson, but she really surprised me. She and Tess paired up together to learn a little sketch and then volunteered to get up on stage at the end of the session to perform it for the other children (and the mum's and dad's). Brodie went up on stage as well to help out, and they were all adorable and very brave.

After the two workshops there was face painting, tie dying, art and craft to do before we left.

And finally a mouse finger puppet.

Hannah absolutely loved the whole day, and really enjoyed trying some new things with her friends. We are going back again on thursday so the girls can try out a new dance class they are running this space!!
