This year, the Fairfax County School Age Child Care program’s curriculum, “Kaleidoscope of the Arts, Creativity from Every Angle,” incorporates many exciting opportunities for children to explore different aspects of the arts, including performing arts, visual arts, and language arts. As part of SACC’s curriculum, four song and dance showcases will celebrate children’s stories through the performing arts.
Approximately 400 children from 27 SACC centers will perform in the “Kaleidoscope of the Arts: Kids on Stage,” showcases which will be held from 10-11 a.m. and 12-1 p.m., March 2 at Centreville High School, 6001 Union Mill Road in Clifton and March 16 at Hayfield Secondary School, 7630 Telegraph Road in Alexandria.
The children have worked with the SACC teachers to choreograph their dances, design their costumes, and put the final touches on their routines. Highlights will include a variety of musical numbers ranging from pop, hip hop and classic rock to Broadway musicals, beloved children’s movies, and even a few originals, penned by the children and SACC staff.
Admission to each of the showcases is free. Each of the SACC showcases will benefit local community organizations. Baby care products and bath supplies for children and families will be collected at the showcases held on March 2 at Centreville High School for donation to FACETS. Canned and boxed food will be collected at the Hayfield Secondary School shows on March 16 to benefit United Community Ministries.
