Enhance your baby's communication skills and education via signing. Jacqueline Ciaramella, a former Bayside NYC school teacher will conduct this sign language course. Here is what the research has to say about signing with babies & toddlers: My child can hear...WHY SHOULD I SIGN??? Over 25 years of scientific research shows that hearing babies who sign typically have the following benefits: Earlier communication: babies can produce signs as early as 6 months old--long before their ability to speak develops. • Fewer Temper-tantrums • Less Frustration • Improved confidence • Better adjusted • Average between 8 and 13 point Higher IQ • Larger vocabulary • Tend to speak and read early • Supports Spelling • It can have amazing results for children with speech or communication challenges, as well as other special needs • Helps children link symbols (signs) with concepts (meaning) and the spoken word • Provides another mode of learning (tactile and kinesthetic) • Increased bonding (signing is face-to-face communication) • Clarifies speech (does "Ba" mean baby? bottle? ball? bug? Banana?) • Exposure to a second language: ASL, and an easy bridge to learn other spoken languages • Being able to communicate with your child when verbal communication is difficult or frowned on (either quiet places or noisy places...or from a distance on the playground) • Easier and earlier diagnosis of health problems. One pre-verbal baby kept signing “thirsty” no matter how much she drank. Testing showed that she was diabetic, which they wouldn’t have known until she was very sick had it not been for signing! • Child can express him/herself when too shy or embarrassed to speak • Opportunity to befriend children who use sign to communicate • Provides and alternative means of communication when speech may be difficult, for example, after a tonsillectomy, laryngitis, etc. • Feels like play Classes will meet one hour a week for 8 weeks. The cost is $160 for an 8 week session. These "Sing, Sign & Play" classes are based on the award winning Signing Time® educational videos featured on Public Television and Nick, Jr. These classes are a unique blend of signing education, music & play.

Sonny Landreth - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
April 10, 2013 - New York

Eric Clapton once declared: "Sonny Landreth is probably the most underestimated musician on the planet, and also probably one of the most advanced." Take Clapton's word for it - Landreth is a musician's musician, a blues guitarist and singer whose unorthodox virtuosic slide guitar style is unique and unforgettable. He plays with the slide on his little finger, using the other fingers in his left hand to fret notes on the guitar's neck, all while playing chords and melodies in his right hand. Of course, Landreth can also play "traditional" guitar with the best of them. A formidable studio musician, he has appeared on recordings by Mountain, John Hiatt, Jimmy Buffett, and numerous other musical legends. Over decades of recording and performing, he has built up a loyal following among his fans and musical peers. Born in 1951 in Canton, Mississippi, Landreth eventually settled with his family in Lafayette, Louisiana, where, after a stint with the trumpet, he first picked up the guitar. His first albums appeared on the Louisiana-based Blues Unlimited label, and his second release, Way Down in Louisiana (1986), got him noticed by some Nashville record executives. Soon, he was working with major musical stars like John Hiatt, John Mayall, and New Orleans bandleader Allen Toussaint, and was cutting additional albums, including Outward Bound (1992), South of I-10, and several discs that featured source material from earlier in his career. The new millennium has found Landreth continuing to tour, record, and collaborate. His recent releases include Levee Town (2000), The Road We're On (2003), Grant Street (2005) and From the Reach (2008). Elemental Journey, his 11th album, came out this past May. The disc is Landreth's first all-instrumental effort and his most adventurous work to date. "What I'd hoped to end up creating was sonic stories without words," he says. "And because there are no lyrics, it's really important to connect on an emotional level ... I want listeners to feel something that resonates with them personally. I've always tried to make music that engages you on a deeper level that way."

Susie Essman - Gotham Comedy Club
April 11, 2013 - New York

Susie Essman has played the sassy Susie Greene for all seven seasons of the critically-acclaimed HBO comedy series, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Her hilarious bouts of withering sarcasm and uninhibited insults have become her character's trademark. The Los Angeles Times calls Susie, "The most lyrical purveyor of profanity on television. She makes the entire cast of "The Sopranos" look like rank amateurs. It really is a gift." The New York Times called Susie "one of the most vivid characters in the show, whose off-color tantrums have become an audience favorite the way Kramer's clumsy entrances once were". The New York Observer (which calls her "fantastic") says "she's taken female cursing to longshoreman levels, pummeling her bumbling, barrel-bodied husband with potty-mouthed invectives like 'You fat fuck!'". Susie's streetwise vernacular is perfectly suited for her life in Manhattan where she has been a veteran of the world of stand up comedy for twenty-five years. She has appeared in her own half-hour HBO comedy special, made numerous appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The View, and Crank Yankers, to name just a few of her many television credits. She has also acted in numerous films, most recently costarring with John Travolta as the voice of Mittens the Cat in the Disney animated movie Bolt. And now Susie adds published author to her list of accomplishments. This fall her book "What Would Susie Say – Bullshit Wisdom Wisdom About Love, Life and Comedy" was published by Simon & Schuster. Susie divides her time between New York City and upstate New York where she lives with her husband, four step-children, and two dogs.

Nederlands Dans Theater - The Joyce Theater
Through April 12, 2013 - New York

Nederlands Dans Theater's magnificent dancers perform an evening of two visually startling and provocative pieces created by co-choreographers Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot. Intimately connected, each explores the nature of love. Set to powerfully beautiful Beethoven works -- Piano Concertos Nos. 3 and 4 and to excerpts from Symphony No. 5 -- Sehnsucht (translated as "yearning") begins with two dancers hovering in a cube-like room. At various times, the room spins, turning the side walls into the ceiling and floor, and then the other way around. This spinning room, with the man and woman trapped inside it, serves as a metaphor for an intense love that is both intimate and claustrophic. As more dancers take the stage, this metaphor is extended throughout the piece. The evening concludes with Schmetterling (translated as "butterfly"). A perfect companion piece to Sehnsucht, this work also examines the nature of love, this time perhaps in its most basic form -- that between mother and child. Set to the cynical love songs by indie pop group Magnetic Fields and British composer Max Richter, Schmetterling replaces the melancholy of Sehnsucht with a sly, somewhat humorous take on love.
