First up - we are thrilled to announce a brand new course offering! There are many folks out there with family members struggling with a myriad of cognitive/behavioral issues. New research has shown that many of those behaviors can be resolved through neurological reorganization, which can be as simple as adding a diet of very specific daily exercises. If you or someone you know is affected by ADHD, sensory issues, Autism, fine motor or auditory processing delays, come join us for our new BrainFit class, inspired by the research gathered by master teacher and creator of the Connections seminar, Virginia Largent, of the Virginia Beach School for the Arts! Students will learn and practice those specific brain exercises together! We'll start next week with the launch of our spring mini-session; check out the web site www.applause-arts.com - for more information and to register!

There has been a lot of reminiscing in the days following Mrs. Malcom's memorial service. Here's a great vintage picture from the days of "Maureen Malcom's Erin Dancers." Now - it's an I Spy game - can you spot Ms. Denise and Mrs./Mary Minnix? :-)
[12/23/13] Got some sad news this weekend. . . Maureen Malcom, Denise's first Irish dance teacher, passed away on Friday. She taught me to "jump over the barrel" and got me to my first World Championships. She also founded the Irish Festival of Northern Virginia which became what we now know as Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann - O'Neill-Malcom Branch and the CCE Feis. Sending thoughts and prayers to her husband, Ben, and children, Benham and Diane. Services are scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 28, at Fairfax Memorial Park.
