WOONSOCKET, R.I.: Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt and the City of Woonsocket are excited to announce registration is now open for the “Intro to Dance” program organized by Elizabeth Kerrigan, Superintendent of Parks & Recreation Department. This 12-week session is open to girls and boys ages 3-12 years old. Older children will learn Jazz and Hip-Hop inspired dance and younger children will learn Ballet and Creative Movement inspired dance.
“Having piloted this program last year with great success we wanted to once again make this opportunity available to the city’s children which provides a healthy, artistic, cultured experience at minimum cost,” stated Mayor Baldelli-Hunt. The cost is just $25 for the 12-week session and meets once per week for an hour. Class sizes are 12-15 children per age group and are held at the Mill Race Building weekday nights. The program culminates with a final showcase in May at the Middle School auditorium for friends and family to attend. This program is open to city residents who have little to no experience and who do not belong to, or previously belonged to, a formal dance studio.
Deadline for Registration is Wednesday, February 19th . Classes start the week of February 24th. Space is limited and fills up quickly. It is recommended you register as soon as possible. Registration is easy. Forms are available in a labeled mailbox at 1117 River Street. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Completed forms can be placed in the locked mailbox at 1117 River Street.

President Trump is brushing off speculation about a problem between himself and his attorney general. Trump told reporters in Maryland today he has total confidence in Bill Barr, but added he has a right to insert himself in Justice Department deliberations. Trump also called himself the "chief law enforcement officer" in the country.        President Trump is throwing shots at a former New York City mayor running for the White House. Trump accused Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg of "illegally buying the Democratic nomination." Bloomberg just qualified for his first debate of the presidential cycle, which takes place in Las Vegas tomorrow.       Fears over the coronavirus are leading to a mixed day on Wall Street. At the closing bell, the Dow lost 166 points to 29-232. The S&P 500 fell 10 points to 33-70. However, the Nasdaq had quite a few companies do well to finish up 2 points to 97-33.       There's no verdict today in day one of jury deliberations in the Harvey Weinstein rape trial. Day two of deliberations will begin tomorrow.        The NASCAR driver involved in yesterday's nasty wreck is now awake and talking. Ryan Newman crashed during the final lap of the Daytona 500, hitting a wall and flipping several times before his vehicle came to rest. He was taken to the hospital in serious condition.       Students in the Lone Star State are lending a helping hand to their local baseball team. Arlington Independent School District students were called to the new home of the Texas Rangers to take part in a "super flush." It involves flushing all the toilets in the new ballpark to make sure the facility's plumbing can handle the demand.
