Star Dance Center in Newhall Rocks!

My daughter signed up for a Parks and Rec class of Musical Theater at the Star Dance Center in Newhall and the play they did was Camp Rock 2. The kids were of all ages and they rehearsed their play at the Star Dance Center located on Lyons Ave for approx. 2 months.

Tonight was the big performance and they were privileged to use  the big stage at Canyon Theatre Guild in Old Town Newhall. What a thrill that was for all the kids!

They all performed so so well!  It was truly enjoyable to watch them!

The Musical Theater instructor was Ms. Merrideth Lesyshyn who did a fabulous job with all these kids!

The Canyon Theatre Guild is a wonderful local Theatre for all to enjoy. They have classes and various types of theatre camps. I have had 2 children perform there and know of others who have gone to the summer camp and only good things can be said!

SCV Search and Rescue hiking challenge

I did this Search and Rescue hiking challenge last year with my then 13 yr old daughter. It is really a lot of fun. Organized and well worth the donation of $50 per person.

They send you maps and info in an email each week. They are very organized about this with support on each hike each week.

There are some long and some short trails. All on the honor system so it’s not do it or your out type of thing.

Last year there were one or two that were rescheduled due to rain or storms so don’t worry about that.

I will be doing this again this year. It really is a lot of fun with some great views of Santa Clarita.

Hope to see you out there!
