Before traveling this summer to teach in Alaska and Florida, Irina Lebedeva will present the talent of her Long Island Ballet Academy & Dance students at the school’s spring recital. This year the annual event takes place on May 30 at 5:30 p.m. at the studio in Sea Cliff.
The recital will begin with a glimpse of what classes are like for Lebedeva’s students, ages 3 to 18. The students will stretch and warm up at the barre. Afterwards, students will present group dances including the Grand Pas de Quatre, originally choreographed for great ballerinas in 1845, the Pas de Trois des Odalisques and as a finale for all students, the Grande Tarantella.
The Builders Club of The After 3 Program are on the move again. This group of kids are asking local merchants to display a donation can for their current fundraiser, “Help Save the North Shore Shelter.”
The North Shore Shelter is housed in the Presbyterian Church on the corners of School and North Streets in Glen Cove. The purpose of this shelter is to house the homeless men of the community during the cold months of November through March.
With a pilot program lending iPads to all middle schoolers, Friends Academy is exploring the leading edge of education technology, but the grand old technology of ink on paper took center stage at the school’s annual Book Fair, a tradition since 1990, that ran through May 1.
By all accounts it was a smashing success—record-smashing, that is, with the bake sale raking in nearly twice its usual take. The final tally for the fair itself was not available as of press time.
“We do raise a lot of money for the libraries, but it’s not about the numbers,” said Judith James, library director at Friends. “It’s to promote kids loving books. We want them to have some physical experience with books. There’s something different about the tangible book on the table.”
Glen Cove High School senior Danny Casale has won another major media art show. This time, Casale took first place in the annual LIU Post Student Film/Video Festival, a show he also won last year when fellow classmate Shalyn Cabaroy took second place.
“Danny continues to help show that Glen Cove High School and GCTV is a force to reckon with in the Educational Television Production business,” said Chris Barry, media communications teacher. “Our name is consistently on top. I’m so proud of him. To my recollection, I don’t
recall any student winning this festival back-to-back and I’ve been going with our students for at least 10 years now.”
Longtime volunteers Laura Gay and Jean Simensky of Locust Valley will be honored at SCO Family of Services’ annual Fashion Show at Nassau Country Club in Glen Cove on May 7.
