Ross Recreation Programs for Children Ages 3-15

The Ross Recreation Department offers fun, learning and innovative programs that build character, provided by an institution that is highly organized, with great instructors and which nurtures a sense of neighborliness in our community.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop is an ever-popular street dance that cultivates body control, creativity, and community! In this 10-week workshop, children of all levels will learn rhythm, choreography, precise footwork, upper body strength for breaking, stage presence, and the history of Hip Hop culture.

Adobe Photoshop

Students will use Adobe Photoshop (from the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite) to create and manipulate different photos. Students can adjust their own face to look like an alien or monster, or “clone” themselves multiple times in a scene.

Game Design

Students will use the program Multimedia Scratch to create their own 2D Platform game. Levels will be fully designed from background to characters and then programmed using a series of if/then statements. The final product will be a fully functional game with lives, enemies, and goals.

Ballet

Pre-ballet classes introduce the dancer to the art of ballet through learning beginning technique (arm position, position of the feet, beginning steps, body placement), as well as fantasy and imagination exercises. The dancers will develop physically, strengthening motor skills, coordination and flexibility. They will discover a command of their bodies while developing confidence in their ability to move. These classes encourage musicality and imagination, as well as develop a passion for dance.

Manners

If your child has never attended an etiquette class, this is the one-time workshop not to miss, for your child to gain the basics to self-introductions, handshaking, eye contact, and other tips on attending parties with or without parents. An introduction to basic table manners, from start to finish, including a 3-course tutorial dinner.

Ballroom Dance/Cotillion

Dance Arts Studios of San Rafael is back to teach the fall Ballroom Dance class. They are experienced in teaching children and teenagers throughout the Bay Area.

Children are asked to dress up each week. Boys should wear a jacket, tie and dress shoes; girls should wear dresses and dress shoes.

Art with Casey

Art with Casey class will focus on a variety of different mediums: from collage to charcoal and from watercolor to colored pencils we will experiment explore and learn shading, painting, perspective, and sketching. We will utilize these skills to create finished pieces of work. We will also have fun doing warm-up games like Simon says draw, collaboration imagination projects, create your own superhero, monsters, animals, abstract works and more.

Sewing

All drills are age-appropriate and achievable and intended to boost their self-confidence.
