Description

Operation Unite Education and Cultural Arts Center will partner with the Hudson Area Library and the Blue Hawk Nation Afterschool Program at the John L. Edwards Elementary School to offer a movement series designed to attract all ages.  The “Get Up and Move!” class will be held Tuesdays, 3:45 – 4:45pm beginning February 7 and will be in the community room of the library. The class is free and open to the public.

Hudson Valley dance artist Carlos Osorio and local dance artist Anthony Molina return to Hudson with an exciting line up of easy and fun movement offered in the “Get Up and Move!” family program.  Carlos Osorio brings 40 years of traditional dances from Colombia to the Capital and Hudson Valley regions. Hip Hop artist Anthony Molina has attracted dancers from Columbia and Greene Counties and beyond.

Each class will have a literacy component allowing participants to discover dance artists and learn about the ongoing impact of movement in our society. Teens from Operation Unite, NY Youth in Action will utilize books from the Hudson Library throughout the nine-week program.

Sponsors of the fitness and literacy initiative are the Children’s Foundation of Columbia County and New York Yearly Quakers.
