The Tahawus Center in Au Sable Forks.

— The century-old historic Tahawus Center, overlooking the Ausable River just next to the Hollywood Theater as a gateway to Main Street in Au Sable Forks, will open its Discovery Programs for the summer July 1.

The Discovery Programs begin with morning Dance Classes offered for at different levels and for different ages, taught by instructors from Rebecca Kelly Ballet and Kids Co-Motion. The Creative Movement program, Kids Co-Motion, helps to enrich early childhood development though music, movement and language. Classes will be held: July 1-3, July 15-18, and Aug 5-15.

The Science Lab Camp for Youth is a four-day program providing a special opportunity to examine phenomena in biology, chemistry, electricity, physics, and astronomy with a hands-on approach. Instructor Gary Dreiblatt, a teacher of 26-years, says the one-week camp is a place where, “Young scientists use professional instruments and build their own equipment to discover the small, the large, and the invisible worlds we inhabit.” Classes will be held July 15-18 for ages 8-14 in two mixed levels.

For a detailed calendar and more information on the Discovery Programs 2013 which continue in August to include craft workshops, please visit the TLC website, TahawusCenter.org, telephone (646) 734-7151 or stop by TLC for a brochure. Some scholarship aid is available for workshop participation. All classes are subject to enrollment.
