SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Love theater, dancing, and music? Children and caregivers are invited to stop by the Scotch Plains Public Library on Thursday, August 6 at 3:00 p.m. for a fun, energetic, and interactive performance by Turtle Dance Music. It will bring together music, theater, technology, movement, and hands-on activities, and thus will be fun and accessible to children of all ages, including those on the Autism Spectrum.

To support the nation-wide summer reading theme, Every Hero has a Story, the staff at the children’s department is excited to present this engaging and interactive musical performance by Turtle Dance Music.

Turtle Dance Music was co-founded by Alex Kveton and Matt Mazur, an Autism intervention specialist who plays the guitar, banjo, harmonica, and thumb piano. Alex Kveton is the education coordinator and plays the guitar, viola, and violin. Turtle Dance Music “is a fun and hands-on music and theater company dedicated to ‘helping audience members come out of their shells.’”
