Salsa your way into our dance studio and learn the basics of On-One Salsa with David Aloka and Vivian Wilson. Learn how to create and demo Tech Valley Game Space video games on a giant projection screen.

Other interactive art mediums available include drawing, painting, jewelry, photography, and more! 

Instructors and staff will be available to talk about the Center’s classes for adults and summer camps for children and teens. Summer camps are one week immersions into a broad range of arts materials, processes and the imagination. This year the ACCR will also be featuring Creative Every Day from 1-2PM in our Main Gallery.
