Enjoy family friendly fun with Jane Franklin Dance at Arlington Public Libraries this summer.  Each performance is a delightful blend of movement, theater, music and participation.  Get in on the fun this summer at these FREE performances.

Complete Dogness is a family friendly performance about a delightful little doggy with bad habits.  She can eat a delicious wool sweater or steal a whole block of cheese. But there is hope as Barky learns new tricks and as the whole family adjusts.  The performance incorporates spoken word, movement, music, and interactive participatory activities for young children.

Mouse in House, adapted from the book by Elizabeth Spires, is about a mouse who forms a friendship with reclusive 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson. The mouse’s life changes forever when a gust of wind blows one of Emily’s poems her way. Moved by Emily’s evocative words that capture her own feelings, the mouse becomes determined to be a poet herself.
