3/20/13     After School Drama:                 Hi Jape!  I wanted to say "thank you".
Jordan LOVES your class, and put on a couple of performances for us last night.
She says she may be singing in bed, to get all her practice in.
It's good to see her get so excited about something-she doesn't really do that
for anything school related so this is very nice to see. Thanks again. Nanci

November 2012 Hi Jape, We met a few weeks ago while my daughter attended the vet college and you helped out while Peter was absent. I wanted to write to share how great you were with the kids and learn more about your acting endeavors. I found your web site and see all the wonderful ways you work with kids …you're a natural ;-) It's so creative to use acting….something you are clearly passionate about to empower and engage kids. I also wanted to share you have a very kind way about you and it was very refreshing to be around you. Have a good night. D

October 11, 2012 Abington Public Library Dear Jape...I want to thank you for the wonderful improv program here at the library. There were a number of teens here that night that were new to programming at the library and the energy and enthusiasm they had clearly during, and after the program was obvious. One of the participants I talked to the next day used the word "awesome" and our staff member who was taking pictures said it was very funny. So thank you for making our job easier. Sincerely, Sandy Bumpus

Subject: Ladybug song 

Hello, I am writing to you because a heard your ladybug song and i would like to know if you could send me the lyrics.   I am from Uruguay, and here is coming spring. I work in a school with children of 2, 3 and 4 year old. They are going to dress up like ladybugs and dance your song, and I would like to have the lyrics so as to stick them in their copybooks. In that way their parents can read and know what the song is about. Just in case you don't know where Uruguay is... it is in South America, and our mother language is Spanish. Thank you very much     Fabiana Nicola
Hi Fabiana,
I also teach small children and we sing and dance to this and many other songs--  Here are the lyrics:

Lady Bug, Lady Bug where did you come from
Lady Bug, Lady Bug you bring good luck
Lady Bug, Lady Bug I'm blessed by the Lady Bug
Lady Bug, Lady Bug you bring me love

I see you flying up to the sky
It makes me wonder how high you fly
You fly in spring time with your colors so bright,
Just open your wings and take to flight

I see you flying up to the sky
It makes me wonder how high you fly
You fly in spring time with your colors so bright,
Just open your wings and take to flight

Lady Bug, Lady Bug where did you come from
Lady Bug, Lady Bug you bring good luck
Lady Bug, Lady Bug I'm blessed by the Lady Bug
Lady Bug, Lady Bug you bring me love

Enjoy-- Thanks!  Jape
 
Thank you very much!!! I'm sure we will enjoy singing and dancing this song!            Fabiana
