Performing Arts- Storytelling
When it comes to celebrating, don’t we each have a little Italian in us? Why not celebrate your “inner Italian” with a trip to Italy right here in New York! Between 1880 and 1920, over four million Italians entered the United States. Learn how those who settled in New York’s neighborhoods made their cultural imprint on the city. With four Little Italys to visit in New York’s boroughs, there’s plenty to see and do. We’ll take a “tour” through each one, with an in-depth look at attractions, restaurants, markets, bakeries, shops; all that makes them uniquely Italian. Plus, we’ll “tour” another Little Italy in a city only two hours from New York. Complete itineraries, thorough information about each neighborhood and directions for car/public transportation/parking will all be provided. And, of course, prizes for all! Buon viaggio!

DiLorenzo, Kris SHAKESPEARE’S WOMEN: THEY’RE NOT WHO YOU THINK THEY ARE! Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Juliet’s a romantic teenager, Lady Macbeth’s an evil conniver, Kate’s an untameable shrew─ wrong! Shakespeare never paints a one-dimensional portrait. There’s much more to these and other females like Queen Margaret, Hermione, and Tamara, than meets the eye─ and you may be very surprised by what they’re really like. The clues to their personalities are in Will's original scripts. Actress Kris Dean performs Shakespeare’s women the way he wrote them, not the way we’re used to seeing them. You'll never look at them the same way again! Kris trained at the Royal National Theatre Studio in London, studied with Royal Shakespeare Company members, and was a master student of director Patrick Tucker, London’s Original Shakespeare Company founder. She has played many classical roles on the New York stage and appeared in Provincetown and Boston, as well as in her own one-woman show. Kris is a member of SAG and AFTRA

Performing Arts- Dance
This program is an introduction to the art of dressage, as performed by the Spanish Riding School and Lippizaner Stallions of Austria. Participants will learn dance moves that mimick the moves of the horses, and can practice them in a simulated dressage arena with stick horses. They will learn moves such as the side pass, pirouette, flying changes, piaffe and passage. The history of the art will be taught using Margeurite Henry's book: The White Stallion of Lippiza. Students will be allowed to perform a KUR using classical music at the end of the program. Traveling along is Lilly, our miniature horse whom the children can meet and pet as the program finale. Dressage is the art of teaching horses to dance in harmony with themselves. It was originally developed by the Greek General Xenophon, as a means to train horses for war. Today it is performed both as an Olympic sport in the summer games and by those who wish to train their horses in the higher arts. The class will be conducted as a ballet class in a flat open area of the library. This program is suitable for the 2013 summer reading program.
