MELT away Winter Aches and Pains

It’s that time of year when the cold seeps into your bones and your muscle and joints scream out for a warm fireside and a cup of tea.

The MELT Method® is a simple self-treatment technique that eliminates chronic pain, improves flexibility, posture, and decreases the accumulated stress caused by the repetitive postures and movements of everyday living. This technique will make your body feel better and keep you active and pain-free for a lifetime.

The workshops are $30/person to drop in and each workshop has a cap of only 15 people so it is recommended to register in advance. All equipment will be provided (soft roller and small balls) and will be available for purchase from the instructor. Kits and DVDs are available for sale at the workshops.

termiNATION is an in-process movement-based solo work investigating life and death through the lens of a pregnant war widow. Inspired by an adolescence and early adulthood steeped in the events of post-9/11 and the recent inauguration of Donald Trump, this piece explores the role women have to play as we carry this new era of politics to term. In the maelstrom of American culture, 21st century colonialism and the cyclical blind faith to trust the institution, termiNATION looks to use the last sixteen years worth of politics, perspective and war to ask ourselves what kind of world we want to create for our children.

There will be a pre-show engagement installation and a feedback session after the performance.

Robot Studio Workshop for ages 10 – 14

Joe’s welcomes Robot Studio Workshop for ages 10 – 14 starting October 21st!

Robot Studio Workshop

Robot Studio Workshops get kids coding in minutes, even kids who are terrified of math and kids who have no experience coding. The secret? Sphero a playful robot that introduces kids to the world of robotics and computer science in a unique and engaging way.

Sphero also lets kids discover and experience fundamental STEM principles and theories in practice. In Robot/Studio Workshop I, students explore Newton’s Laws of Motion through a series of challenging activities. They learn how to problem solve, think scientifically and create unique solutions, the same way that programmers, scientists and engineers do in the real world.

The workshop seeks to ease anxiety around math and science by letting kids learn by doing, guided by their natural sense of curiosity and playfulness.

In a future where coding and STEM will be as important as reading and writing, Sphero instills the desire to create and explore using the language and tools of tomorrow.
