There are many programs for children at the Bronxville Women's Club, too! Besides those listed below, there are Theatre Arts classes, Music Recitals, Ballet classes and Ballroom Dancing classes. Here are some pictures from some of the activities:
The Westchester Royal Academy of Etiquette and Protocol. At the conclusion of the course, the children enjoyed a Graduation Party where they received their graduation medals and certificates, along with the young ladies receiving their tiaras, pearls, and gloves. While drinking tea from Victorian-style teacups and saucers, with tea poured from their very own teapot, they enjoyed delicious tea sandwiches and sweets catered by Gourmet 2 Go of Bronxville and La Renaissance of Scarsdale. The graduates enjoyed a glorious crown cake with their own Baroque-style children's flatware and Princess-theme plates.
NY Rhythm Kids Theatre Group. For children who did not go skiing or sunning in the tropics over winter vacation, the club was jumping all week as boys and girls rehearsed for a performance of GREASE with Rhythm Kids. They were directed and choreographed by Leisha Horin. Parents, siblings, and friends thoroughly enjoyed the fruits of their efforts with a performance at the end of the week.
Students Recital. January 30 was the day for children to perform in the concert hall to a full house. They either sang or played an instrument and all were terrific. At the conclusion of the recital, they were presented certificates from the BWC, presented by club president Bundi Rugsegger and Joyce Balint, BWC music director. Then a reception, with goodies donated by the parents, was enjoyed by all.
Art Seminar. The artist of the month of March, David Sorensen, invited classes from the Bronxville High School to view his exhibit for Gallery Talks. He described how he would begin a painting and provided a slide presentation of a work from inception to finish. The students really enjoyed the presentation and were texting all their friends about it (after they left, of course).
