Boston Community Collaborative performs “12 Months with the Snow Queen”

Boston Community Collaborative is so proud of its students who performed “12 Months with the Snow Queen, A Salute to the Seasons” on Sunday at the St. John School stage. The play included approximately 60 students ages 3-10 from our weekly dance and drama classes at the St. John School afterschool program, and at the BPS Eliot School.

This original play was written, directed, and choreographed by BCC’s lead drama and dance instructor, Ingrid Oslund.  Miss Ingrid combined a Russian folk tale of the Season family discovering the 12 months with the Nordic tale by Hans Christian Anderson, The Snow Queen.

A lovely, festive reception followed the show and included donated Regina Pizza, and a Ginger Bread men decorating station from Lulu’s.

BCC is delighted to continue to create opportunities that mix kids from different contexts in the neighborhood.  Our SJS students may know our Eliot School students thru the Nazzaro Center, from sports, from their respective neighborhoods, from the playground, from their daycare long ago – it is a thrill to bring them all together in collaboration.

BCC was incorporated in 2013 and strives to create community by connecting people and resources.

BCC offers courses in Drama, Dance, Fitness and Engineering for Kids during the St John School afterschool program, courses in Drama in the North End, and at the Josiah Quincy afterschool program. BCC holds a Movers and Shakers class for babies and toddlers at the West End Community Center. BCC hosts a number of community events: Movie Nights in the Gassy during the summer, an annual Halloween Party for adults, and an annual Springtime Egg Hunt in Christopher Columbus Park.
