Sai dance festival reaches 100th month.
Thank you Lincoln Park Cultural Center for the Graduation day. The past 3 and half years were wonderful transitioning from tot classes to kiddie college. We watched our child grow, make friends, play fun games, explore nature, learn, get messy making art, dance and become strong practicing gymnastics. Keep up the good work and wish you all the best for the next generation :)
Wonderful graduation ceremony today. Thanks to all who made it happen.
