Cast Of Characters Brightens The Street

Heartwood in the Hills presented "The Seasons," a masked salute to the Calhoun community on the street in front of the Calhoun courthouse Saturday. The presentation was an event of the 39th Calhoun County Wood Festival.

Heartwood's parade performance marks the culmination of the school's spring program, featuring familiar and favorite masks as well as new masks, all worn by 60 Heartwood students, faculty and alumni.

Dancing for the Wood Festival parade audience was Artistic Director and creator of "The Seasons" mask, Jude Binder. Making their Wood Festival parade debut was the Heartwood Dance Team, a 12 member group of 9-13 year old boys and girls who have been part of Heartwood's after school program. They have been coming to the school twice a week to take ballet and theatre dance classes.

Also performing in "The Seasons" were Heartwood faculty, advanced and creative dance class students. Heartwood's parade line-up included students of the Spring Creative Arts for Children, Festival Parade Art and mask making classes, plus students of Theatre Dance and Movement, and several alumni.
