If your child(ren) is in after school, we will coordinate with the after school program for pick up and return.  If your older child(ren) is not in after school but wishes to attend our classes - let me know.  We will work with each situation separately.  There may be a small extra fee, depending on how many older kids stay immediately after school.
Sibling discount applies - if applies to your family - let me know and I'll get you details.

Our end of session performance, A NIGHT ON BROADWAY, combines all of our SJS dance and drama students WITH our students who rehearse at the Eliot into one big production.  Miss Victoria will be working with our students to create our very own adaptations of "Once on This Island" (Eliot School kids), "Little Shop of Horrors" (SJS kids grades 1 and up), and "The Wizard of Oz" (SJS kids K3, K4, K5).  Our older kids will be writing their own scripts!
