Author, ventriloquist, and musician Val Smalkin starts the day with a fun-filled assembly presenting songs and characters from her Gold Medal award-winning book, Springtime Dance. At your request the day may continue with a variety of age-appropriate small group sessions on puppet-making, song-writing, and composition.
