ALTON — As a part of its fourth annual Kids Health Safety and Activity Fair, the Madison County Child Advocacy Center is holding a dance clinic for children ages 6-10 from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 18, in the upper level of Alton Square Mall.
There is a registration fee of $15 for the clinic. Sponsored by St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the clinic features instructors from Fitness and Fun in East Alton teaching students basic dance steps, how to put together a routine, and how to have fun while dancing. The clinic will take place at the Alton Square mall, in the upper level. Registrations are due by Friday, April 10, to guarantee a T-shirt. A registration form is available on the CAC Facebook page at www.facebook.com/madcocac or email email@example.com for a pdf copy of the form.
Another attraction still accepting participants is the Kids Business Expo. The expo still has spots open for children who have their own business and make goods to sell. It provides children with the ability to learn good business practices and encourages a healthy spirit of competition. The items can be displayed and sold to patrons on the day of the fair. There is a $15 registration for the Kid Businesses.
In addition to the dance clinic and business expo, the fair will have plenty of vendor booth resources and activities for children from 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, April 18, at the Alton Square Mall. Several organizations will be offering kid-friendly activities at their vendor booths, and there will be great entertainment on the stage. The fair will also feature an outdoor safety village to help children learn the rules of the road, an American Red Cross blood drive, Home Depot crafts, car seat safety checks from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., free bike helmets for children and a balloon artist.
“This is truly a great day to raise awareness about child abuse prevention while providing families with meaningful connections to resources available in the community,” CAC Executive Director Carrie Cohan said. “Most importantly, the Kids Fair provides a fun day for children and families in Madison County.”
