Children of Calhoun County will be treated to Heartwood in the Hills’ “Springala 2018” performance on Tuesday, May 29, at Arnoldsburg and Pleasant Hill Elementary Schools. These performances are part of Heartwood’s annual salute to the Calhoun County community and participation in this years’ Calhoun County Wood Festival.
Heartwood’s Performing Arts dance and theatre students will perform a colorful, highly entertaining program complete with dances, masks and more, including a remounting of “Storms” a beautiful dance with fans presented originally at Fall Showcase of Student work last December.
“Springala” is choreographed and directed by Artistic Director Jude Binder and will feature dancers Mickaylee Cowan, Kiley Murphy and Bethany Starkey along with theatre students Clay Allison, Khloe Cobbett, Gerri Kerby, Tessa Slider and Adrianna Taylor.
These young artists have been working since March to prepare for this exciting event – taking anywhere from 1 to 3 classes per week to study their craft as well as participating in rehearsals.
The public is invited to attend. Please contact the schools to let them know you plan to attend. Be sure to sign in at the office.

Heartwood’s mission is to provide an underserved rural population with a place to learn, heal and grow through programs in the arts. One of the most important aspects is its financial aide program which embodies the ideal that the arts belong to everyone and the artistic gift in each person deserves nurturing regardless of anyone’s ability to pay. The generosity of individuals, businesses andfoundationsallow Heartwood to keep class fees low.
Your donation will help Heartwood in the Hills meet its mission. Traditionally, one-half of the students who attend Heartwood receive either full or partial financial aide in the form of a donated scholarship in order to cover class fees during a 12-week class program.
For example: $160.00 pays the class fees for a Performing Arts Program student to attend 2 classes a week during a 12-week program.
$60.00 pays the 12-week class fee for a child to join the Creative Arts for Children or Young Artist class.
$100.00 pays the class fees for a teen or adult to create a mask during the 12-week Maskmaking class.
