Approximately 100 students showed off their talents in Kids Unlimited Academy’s annual Visual & Performing Arts Show.
The entire KUA student body attended the June 9 event, beginning at noon with the art walk of visual arts exhibits — painting, drawing, ceramics and more. The tour concluded with a ribbon ceremony honoring participating artists.
The afternoon’s showcase continued with a lineup of “fun, creative acts” that included singing, dancing, gymnastics, cheerleading, martial arts, comedy, magic, even burping, said KUA music and theater instructor BriAnna Johhnson. KUA’s young musicians demonstrated their skills and artistry on drums, piano, guitar and bass.
Some standout performances, said Johnson, were:
Eighth grader Angelo Sanchez and second grader Marina Sanchez demonstrating their boxing skills; seventh graders Eduardo Maldonado Quintero playing the bass and Joshua Cortes playing the guitar to “Con Tus Besos”; fourth grader Josue Gonzalez playing the drums; sixth grader Brody Kiesser playing the piano; second grader Aimeelilly Polataivao doing a cheer routine; and first grader Aria DeMarco dancing to “Hit Me With a Hot Note.”
