Our students have a hectic school week, so on Saturdays they come down to BCAL for the yoga workshop led by our certified instructor Ira. In the workshop, they do exercises to stretch, relax and to develop focus and concentration, all the while having fun! They leave looking and feeling refreshed and ready to take on more challenges.
This was our first workshop with Sustainable Flatbush. We planted some lettuce seeds in plastic bottles — growing healthy food and reusing materials to prevent waste, all in one afternoon…
In the spring we’ll plant the lettuce at the new Community Garden at Church Ave and Flatbush.
March was definitely a big month for BCAL’s house band sensation the Black Jackets and IS 291′s Brooklyn Future Records. With an appearances on Foxnews and the televised morning show Good Day New York and a live show at Brooklyn College Art Lab, the Black Jackets are destined for greatness. Along with other BCAL music students, the group is also working on a script and new songs for The Apartment, a live music video that will be presented at BCAL in June. They’re also working with special guest artist, Maya Azucena on polishing their vocal skills. Here are some photos take by professional music photographer, Ted Baron from the awesome March 4th gig. Also we’d like to thank Entrfied, the God of Sound for his incredible work developing the talents of both The Black Jackets and Brooklyn Future Records!
