Cristina Post will be offering free Irish step classes on Mondays and Thursdays starting March 4th during lunch recess. Monday class (Intermediate) will be for students with prior Irish stepdance experience, and Thursday will be for beginners, grades 4 and up. Please note that this is not a drop-in class, as Irish step is a cumulative skill. For the first week or two, students are welcome to come and try it out to see if they like it, but after that it will run like a traditional dance class until the May Faire (after which the weather is too nice to keep inside!). Beginners will learn a simple reel or jig, and intermediate students will continue to work on solo steps and improve their hardshoe skills. Intermediate students are permitted to attend Thursdays as well to practice their steps independently and help out with the younger students. If you would like more information, please contact Cristina at email@example.com. Thanks! (02/26)
Au-pair in Paris Needed: Dear Waldorf School, I am contacting you as I am looking for an au-pair for my family, based in Paris. I would be very grateful if you would kindly circulate this information to your senior students about to finish their schooling (or already finished), or if you have a newsletter that this could be included in. We are ideally looking for a student with a creative nature who would enjoy spending time with 2 young children, as well as enjoying the opportunity of living in Paris. We are looking for someone as soon as possible in the Spring 2013.
With thanks and kind regards, Ania de Laage (02/26)
