Badminton is an indoor racquet sport, which promotes physical fitness and mental wellness. While it can be a causal activity, badminton is also a competitive sport! Since 1992, Badminton has been in the Summer Olympics! Besides numerous health benefits, badminton helps students learn good sportsmanship and team work. In this class, we will teach the basics of badminton, including the rules of the game, as well as useful techniques and strategies to play successfully. The class will cover gripping technique, basic footwork, serving, and basic badminton shots, such as drive, defensive high clear, drop shots, and smashing!

KIDSTAGE: SILVER

KIDSTAGE STAFF

WEDNESDAY

$165

Just as "Wicked" is to "The Wizard of the OZ" so is "Silver" to "Treasure Island." Long John Silver wasn’t always a notorious pirate. There was a time, back in pirate school, when he was just a one legged outcast struggling to make friends and find his way. It is here that he meets the spunky and confident pirate queen Captain J. Flint and starts the hunt for the legendary treasure of the text-loving Oracle.

Through helping his friend and a steady rivalry with the ruthless Captain Smollett, Silver soon finds himself on the path that will eventually lead him to the Hispaniola and Treasure Island. The script includes many elements of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story but it takes pirates into the 21st century and proves that there really are two sides to every story.
