Join the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance for a one-of-a-kind, family interactive experience that features the arts of music, dance and theater this Saturday, April 3.

This season's final installment of SAACA's long-running family performance series Musical Magic for Kids takes place Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at the Oro Valley Music and Dance Academy, 7954 N. Oracle Road (next to the Trader Joe's on the southeast corner of Magee and Oracle roads). Admission to the event is free.

Saturday's event — "Moving Body in Rhythm" — features percussion and dance by Claire Hancock and Drew Andreatta. "Djembes, congas, bells, shakers and more will make you 'move it, move it,'" a release said. "Through world rhythms, discover the dynamic relationship of dance and percussion."

SAACA produces the Musical Magic for Kids series with support from the Town of Oro Valley.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
