Age doesn't matter. Enrichment begins with a SNAP! Bring your beginner to advanced skills--or just give it a try-- in voice-piano-strings-woodwind and other forms of music, tango-ballroom-belly-zumba dance, theater, teen film workshops and more.  All takes place near Camelback Rd/Granite Reef Road.  Drop in and be amazed at the richness of the arts opportunities for all ages. Their annual fundraiser is this weekend. Check out their website at   As public schools reduce or eliminate their Art offerings we need to support these volunteer teams and their programs.   

So, go SNAP on Sunday, please.
