Joining in with the crew at North York Women’s Shelter (NYWS) for the first time was wonderful! While a staff member helped get me set up, a couple sets of eyes kept sneaking into the room to see what was going on and ask me questions about my guitar – we had a captive audience right from the start! One of the highlights from this class is that the mothers who attended were highly interested in learning all the letters of the alphabet in sign language that they could; I'm sure they'll be practising with their kids in between classes. Another major highlight for everyone was the parachute! It came out and dancing and squealing immediately ensued. We shook the parachute, lifted it up and down to the beat, and pointed to all the colours on it as they were called. A perfect way to end our first session!
