Dancers and Artists, Take Your Place!

You know it's that fall season as the summer heat waves dwindle admist the brisk autumn nights. Here at Merrimack Hall, it's a much anticipated time because it marks the beginning of our Johnny Stallings Arts Program! With our dance classes tapping and twirling away in the dance studio and theatre, and the art students painting and creating in the house out back, the rustle of the leaves is merely white noise compared to the hustle and bustle here!

Our Johnny Stallings Arts Program provides a place for over 85 children, teenagers and adults with special needs to create, dream and perform to their loving hearts' content! Our outreach includes Dance Your Dreams for ages 3-12, Project UP for ages 13-up, Inspired HeARTS for all ages. We are thrilled to have our first adult art class this year from; these students are from a local group home and visit us once week.

This 2011 Performance Season, Merrimack Hall will clear the stage on December 1 for Believe, the dance students' Christmas performance. We've all seen our favorite Christmas movies, ballets and musicals, but make room for this unforgettable, tear-jerking, dancing and singing show! These kids practice for months, and their spirit is contagious to everyone around them.

Check out last year's performance and visit for tickets!
