MODERN 1

AGES 6-8This class introduces new dancers to the basics and beginning techniques of traditional ballet while continuing to build on those techniques with returning students.

BALLET – Intermediate AGES 6-12This class follows a traditional ballet class structure focusing on increasing strength, flexibility and coordination while continuing to learn new fundamentals and ballet terminology. Beginners may join class with instructor approval.

AGES 6-9Students will begin learning inversions and floor work and experimenting with fall and recover, strength vs. release and weight vs. suspension. Further exploration of space, time and force will happen through learning choreography and opportunities for students to create their own movement – all of which help them to develop their creative voices and feel empowered by the ways they move!

Join Any Time! Performing arts is an ongoing learning experience! Students may join class at any time during the session. Dance cultivates physical coordination and confidence, but also creative expression and problem solving. This helps students develop their ability to be creative thinkers in every capacity – academically, socially and artistically.

Recital Fees Annual Spring Review dance recitals are tentatively set for May 9 at Timberline High School. A costume fee of $6 and a recital fee of $5 is added to your registration for the spring session. Participation in the recital is not mandatory.

HIP HOP (8-12)

AGES 8-12Hip Hop is a fun high energy dance style that will have everyone up and moving! Music is fun and hip but age-appropriate. Come ready to learn some cool new moves. Classes are great exercise and great fun! Thanks to the Max Pham Hip Hop Fund, fees are reduced by $5.

We are proud to present the Max Pham Hip Hop Fund! Cost for each hip hop class has been reduced by $5 thanks to a generous donation from Max Pham. Max grew up honing his dance skills at Fort Boise and now he is proud to work with some of the top performers in the world including Justin Timberlake. For more information or to donate, contact Clay Lee 208-608-7684.

HORTIC ULTURE EVENING LECTURES Garden tasks in the winter and early spring are all about learning, planning and preparing for the coming growing season. Join our BUGS farmer and invited experts to learn everything you need for a healthy and successful start to your growing season.

GARDEN PLANNING SEED STARTING COOL CROPS FRUIT TREE PRUNING 101

Early spring is the best time to learn proper techniques for pruning fruit trees. This hands-on class will take you from practicing in the BUGS orchard to successfully pruning your own trees back home.

SOIL & COMPOST LIBRARY SERIES GRAPE GROWING

Come learn about growing grapes in Idaho. We will cover everything from planting, pruning and harvesting grapes to how to train your grape vines and handle the challenges of insects and diseases. Grape vines can be a valuable addition to your homestead or a great backyard hobby with delicious results to boot!

FRUIT TREE PRUNING

Knowing how and when to prune for fruit is much different than pruning an ornamental tree. If you have a fruit tree, this is the class for you!

LAURA MOORE CUNNINGHAM CITY ARBORETUM TOUR

Come tour the nursery where the city grows its trees. Learn basic nursery production, species identification and characteristics of small trees. We’ll also look at mature specimens. There are uneven surfaces that may be dusty or muddy, so please wear appropriate shoes. Please bring a water bottle.

LAWN & IRRIGATION

An overview of important topics related to growing a beautiful lawn, including turf grass growth, physiology and effective cultivation strategies for different grass types common in Idaho. We will also discuss efficient irrigation systems plus sprinkler maintenance design. Q&A to follow the presentation.

ORGANIC GARDENING

Learn the basics of organic gardening. We’ll cover garden planning, plant selection and care, water, and weed and pest management. 36

Organic Gardening

Learn how to grow a successful organic garden and how you can enjoy the health and personal benefits of cultivating your own food.

ROSES & LANDSCAPE

We will cover pruning techniques and how to treat some of the most common pests in roses, including Bacterial Cane Blight. Get background on residential landscape design considerations including site planning, proper plant placement, hydrozones and low-water use landscaping.

TREASURES OF THE BOISE FRONT – Wildflowers and More

Did you know that the Boise Front is also special for its diversity of rare unusual and even recently discovered wildflowers? We will go on a photographic journey to explore the floristic treasures of the Boise Front, from Bonneville Point to Mores Mountain to Spring Valley, growing in a diversity of unique habitats.

TREE BIOLOGY

Get the dirt on soil and plant interactions. Learn the basics of caring for the soil as well as basic plant structures and walk away with a growing understanding on how to manage soil and proper tree care for healthier, longer living trees.

TREE PRUNING

This pruning class will address more than just cutting off branches. Incorrect pruning can cause serious problems for your trees. Learn the correct way to make a pruning cut, the tree’s response to the cuts you make and how to prune for the long-term health and beauty of your trees.

TREE PROBLEMS

Learn about insects and diseases that affect our trees and about the most common problems people create by incorrect cultural practices.

WINTER/SPRING 2019-2020 ACTIVITY GUIDE

Learn to identify the problems and get suggestions on how to correct them.

TREE SELECTION AND PLANTING

Planting incorrectly is one of the most common reasons for tree failure. Unfortunately, sometimes the problem isn’t evident for 10 or more years. Once you’ve chosen the perfect tree for your area, learn the correct way to plant (or what to look for when someone else plants) to ensure the tree’s long-term success.

UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO EXTENSION MASTER FOOD SAFETY ADVISOR PROGRAM The Boise Urban Garden School is partnering with the University of Idaho Extension to offer a Master Food Safety Advisor program. Course topics include: Canning acid foods (fruits and tomatoes), Canning low-acid foods (meats and vegetables), Soft Spreads (Jams & Jellies), Pickling, Dehydration, Food Safety and Freezing methods.

PERFORMING ARTS (18+) BELLYDANCE

building self-confidence and coordination. Dance experience or not, this class is perfect for learning and exploring a new culture. No partner needed!

Students will develop grace, fluidity and core strength learning this ancient art form. With over 20 years of experience, Adriane provides detailed movement breakdowns that help both beginning and experienced dancers to grow. With a focus on Egyptian-style dance, students will learn basic belly dance technique and combinations that culminate in a final choreography. Come ready to dance in bare feet or dance slippers, and bring a yoga mat or towel.

NEW MODERN DANCE AGES 9+ It takes a childlike sense of inhibition and adventure to try something new, along with a mature ability to focus and stick with it - so all ages will bring important qualities to this class. Modern dance offers a great balance of technique, improvisation and choreography. In a supportive environment, students will have opportunities to create their own movement using fun choreographic tools, which will challenge all levels of dancers and help everyone develop their creative voices and feel empowered in their bodies.

BROADWAY FOSSE/JAZZ DANCE Bob Fosse is famous for choreography in musicals like Chicago, Sweet Charity, and Cabaret. Claudia will bring her knowledge of Fosse learned with Chet Walker, the protégé of Fosse, to the choreography we will learn during class. You will learn original Bob Fosse choreography combined with Broadway Style jazz. Prior dance experience is not necessary but helpful. Come dressed comfortably and ready to move. No special shoes required.

TAP These classes are fun, challenging and guaranteed to make you feel like you had a great workout! The BEGINNER class is for those who have never tapped before or tapped when very young. The INTERMEDIATE class is for dancers who have tapped awhile and are ready for the next level of skill sets. If you have had tap recently or have been in our program for at least two years, the NEXT STEP class is the one for you. If you are unsure what level is best for you, feel free to speak with the instructor.

FLAMENCO – Intro Class time will be spent learning basic steps, body positioning, and the flow of arm/hand movement. As class progresses we will begin working on percussive steps and brazeo (arms) and how to coordinate them into a short dance piece. Through a fiery Flamenco song list, we will keep our focus on dancing for fun while CLASS (18+) BELLYDANCE BROADWAY FOSSE/JAZZ DANCE

ZOO CONSERVATION While we all care about animals and want to protect them in the wild, knowing how to help can be a challenge. Now, when families in the Treasure Valley visit the zoo, they just don’t see animals, they help save animals as well. In 2007, Zoo Boise became the first zoo in the country to create a conservation fee. During our visit we will have a conservation presentation to learn more about these efforts in addition to our regular zoo visit.

VoLEARNteer ADOPT-A-PARK Groups can make a year-long commitment to help us maintain one of Boise’s many parks. Tasks include removing graffiti, picking up litter, filling “mutt mitt” dispensers, painting site amenities, raking leaves, mulching trees and refurbishing picnic tables. In exchange, Parks and Recreation recognizes adopting groups via signage in the park.

Birds are found in nearly every city setting, from urban microparks to the sprawling foothills that border our northeastern edge. Birds visit backyard feeders, perch in low shrubs and on tall structures, swim in our river, lakes and ponds, nest in our trees and soar overhead. A variety of Boise’s habitats attract and support hundreds of species, and we invite you to explore some of the area’s most common birds. The Field Guide to Boise’s Birds is available free online. A printed version is available for purchase at the Boise Parks and Recreation Administration Office for $8 plus tax.
