The Stuart Dynasty: A 17th Century Soap Opera
Following their Tudor cousins, the Stuarts reigned for four generations over the 1600s, the most turbulent century in English history: civil war, a time without a king, plague pandemics, and witch hunts ran alongside the Scientific Revolution. England was transforming from a medieval monarchy into a modern state. Living soap opera lives, the Stuart kings and queens, colorful, dramatic, and controversial, gave us riveting stories as they rode the roller coaster of the 17th century.

Singing in a choir is a wonderful way for kids to begin their musical training. There are a multitude of benefits, helping them to develop musically, socially, and intellectually. We will begin to read and write music, and sing in harmony with new friends. Rehearsals are part vocal training, part musicianship, part games, part rehearsing pieces, and maybe even a little dancing thrown in. Come sing with us! Led by Sarah Cane, who leads singing classes at Inverness School. All singers age 6-12 are welcome.
Aikido is the only martial art that seeks to resolve conflict without harming the attacker.  Children find that Aikido helps them learn to get along, build self-confidence, develop focus, good manners, and calmness.  Training develops physical coordination and balance as children run, roll, jump, and fall.  Ruth Lopez is the children's Aikido Program Director at Aikido of Marin.  Contact Ruth to register for for more information.  (415) 663-8801.
