POSTED: 09/5/11 12:51 PM

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten — Imbali Center for Creative Movement is adding drama classes for children to its 2011-2012 schedule starting this Wednesday, from 2:15-3:00pm.

The classes will be taught by St. Maarten’s own Asheda Maccow, who is an avid lover of the arts. Maccow attended Milton Peters College, before leaving the island to study Humanities and Elementary Education at the University of the Virgin Islands. Maccow, who graduated in 2011, recently returned to the island and is employed as a Creative Artistic Formation instructor at one of the island’s high schools.

While at UVI she worked with and took part in several of the university’s plays, musicals and chorale readings that were produced by Douglas Larche. Some of the productions she was involved with include; In the Beginning, A Song for Coretta, and South Pacific. In South Pacific she played a 1960’s navy nurse and in the chorale reading “A Song for Coretta” she played the role of Keisha. In her most recent play “Old Story Time” by Trevor D. Rhone she was directed by David Edgecombe and played the role of Miss Margaret.

“Asheda is very knowledgeable about dramatic reading and because of that we asked her to come and join the staff at Imbali. Our aim is to expose our island’s youth to as much of the arts as possible and this venture provide us with yet another opportunity to fulfil this goal,” Clara Reyes said.

Reyes, who is the founder and director of Imbali Center for Creative Movement said that the classes are open to students 5-12 years old. More information about this class and the full Imbali curriculum can be obtained by visiting the school’s office at the John Larmonie Center on the Longwall Road, in Philipsburg. Interested persons can also call Reyes at 554-9364 or contact her via FaceBook or email:
