THANK YOU “Harness Life” for recognizing the work that LAMBERTVILLE ANIMAL WELFARE does in working with Animal Control in 18 townships in Hunterdon County to save, vet, spay/neuter and adopt out ALL animals found, and in our care! And of course our passion for doing TNR work!
Harness Life awarded 12 spay/neuter grants to rescue groups in NJ for their “2015 Twelve Spays of Christmas”program, and LAW was one of the lucky (honored!) twelve.
Harness Life is a wonderful organization (read their story below + check out their website!) and we are so grateful for their recognition and the grant that will enable us to spay/neuter cats at our low cost cat clinic McSnip - stopping the births of thousands more!
FROM HARNESS LIFE: Why do we work so diligently to raise money for our ♀Spay ♂Neuter Fund? So we can give grants to hard working rescue groups! This grant money specifically targets sterilization – currently the best way we know of to #StopRoverpopulation at the source.
We’ve sought out twelve New Jersey based organizations that rescue dogs or cats to be our 2015 Twelve Spays Of Christmas recipients. These groups are dedicated to saving, vetting, sterilizing and finding great homes for companion animals. Enjoy! http://www.harnesslife.org
Lambertville, New Jersey's Downtown Performing Arts Center (DPAC) has announced its 2016 Winter Class Schedule. Set to begin January 4, the 11-week session features classes for all ages in dance, acting, Pilates and more.
Beginner, intermediate and advanced classes are being offered for jazz, tap and ballet. Classes are designed to enhance performance techniques and build skills for students of all ages.
Acting talents will be honed through classes taught by industry professionals including an adult acting class led by award-winning film and theater director Stephen Stahl. Classes will focus on performance skills and vocalization techniques ultimately building confidence and preparing students for actual stage performances. Stahl's acting class will begin on Monday, January 18 following the off-Broadway opening of his production, "Sanctuary the Play."
Saturday morning will include classes in Pilates and Kinder Dance. Pilates will build strength, endurance and flexibility and include core training techniques. Kinder-Dance will introduce children to the dance classroom and disciplines of ballet, tap and jazz.
DPAC is helping to prepare teens for college with two new offerings on Tuesdays. Musical Theatre History will discuss the development of musical theater as an art form from its earliest years into the 21st Century. Later that same evening, a College Prep class will guide and support students through college acting and assist on preparation of musical theater applications and auditions.
Finally, DPAC is pleased to again offer their "Triple Threat Master Class." This team-taught weekly class is designed to perfect vocal skills, acting and dancing while building confidence for performance and auditions.
