Girls Group is Back!

Our Girls Group is back! Girls, 12-18 years old, are invited to join our new friend Courtney Schorr of AspenPLAY for an afternoon of learning the Art of Clowning!

Saturday, March 15th from 4:30-6:00 at the WC3,  just before the Purim Carnival.

Part of the Purim tradition is MORE! Do more, dance more, laugh more, read more, love more and do more of what you love!

To instill this tradition, we are introducing the idea of clowning to help our girls exaggerate the more! Clowns embellish everything from their clothes and outward appearances to their emotions and what's inside.

On Purim, we are asked to rid our daily routines and do things a little differently. We are going to challenge your girls to remove the masks of their everyday person, and show us who they really are. To find their inner clown!

They will learn about expression, pantomime, face painting, and the array of clowns that exist from mimes, to hobos, to the traditional “bozo”. (More information to follow).

Also, on Purim, we are asked to develop a sense of giving, to get out of ourselves, and to laugh at ourselves. To let go of self-centeredness because not everything is about us. We make Purim baskets (misloach manot), which are given to both our friends and to those who are less fortunate than us.

Your girls will not only be reminded of the importance of giving and doing more for others, but how to be silly and not take themselves too seriously!

Starting at 4:30-6:00pm followed by the Purim Carnival where our girls will get to show off their new faces painting skills!!

We hope to see you there and what’s behind your mask as well!
