Kids: Ramblin’ Dan’s Freewheelin’ Band

Tuesday, June 20 + 27 – Various Times

Ramblin’ Dan’s Freewheelin’ Band provides high energy and engaging music classes for kids 0-4 years old. Driven by playful musicality and skillful guitar work, sessions are about having fun in pressure-free and comforting atmosphere, helping kids gain confidence. Using the music to lead the way, your bandleader will help your kids jam along on instruments, use various props for activities (parachutes, scarves, umbrella dances, puppets), read song-based books, learn sign language, do animal-play, and of course clap, dance and sing along.



Benefit: Whimsy in the Garden Cocktail Party

Saturday, June 24 @ 6 PM

Welcome summer while strolling the sculpture garden and toasting Southampton Arts Center’s 10th Anniversary. Enjoy summer cocktails, gourmet fare, and swing jazz. This is the perfect opportunity to support an institution that brings vitality to our beloved Village.
