[ADVERTORIAL] “I can’t! I can’t! I really can’t sing a solo!” That was the shy little cry of the young first grader who was afraid to perform in front of an audience. Her voice was pure and she was able to carry a tune well for a young child her age. But she was afraid of the crowd of people.
Kulanu Nashir encouraged and supported her. The little girl practiced in front of a few friends, then sang in front of the whole choir. By the time the Kulanu Nashir Concert arrived in late February, the little first grader held the microphone with confidence and performed her solo royally in front over nine hundred cheering friends and family.
Every young girl can be a star. All it takes is confidence. Kulanu Nashir gives each girl the tools and the opportunity to learn and practice in a fun and exciting atmosphere. The girls are trained to ‘hear’ the music, recognize the beats and sing on key. They are taught motions to the songs which helps their gross motor coordination.
Kulanu Nashir has a Dance Group which helps teach the girls basic dance techniques. Acro-dance incorporates gymnastics. There is also Tap.
New this year to Kulanu Nashir is Drama. This group will learn to speak with confidence, role play, and perform in front of an audience without succumbing to giggles and stage fright.
Most girls opt to join two sessions of Kulanu Nashir, choosing two of the three different clubs. Some girls though find that practicing and rehearsing for three hours is just too long for them, so new to Kulanu Nashir this year is the Specialty Room. During the second session those girls will have the opportunity to explore various projects and numerous exciting activities.
Kulanu Nashir’s hours are 10:30 – 12:00 and 12:00 – 1:30. The beginning Sunday is Sunday, November 2. The location is Bnos Penina on the corner of Prospect and Massachusetts Avenues. To register please call Malkie Horowitz 732-730-0283.
…And the performance will be at LakewoodHigh School, on a professional stage with a professional sound system and professional lighting.
