Activities will include dance, music and theater performances as well as art exhibits, organizers stated in an announcement.

A listing of activities and links to purchase tickets will be available online.

The listing will also include free events in parks and other public places. Participants are invited to plan their own arts activities.

One of the activities will feature a demonstration by the teen ballet pointe class from Gotta Dance, the official school of the Plano Metropolitan Ballet. Demonstrations will take place April 10 and April 11 from 6:30 p.m.-8 p.m. at 3131 Custer Road. The class will feature a 45-minute barre and center/combination work for an additional 45 minutes.

Several watercolor kits with a variety of supplies and prices will be available for purchase. Each kit contains a workbook or instructions for easy projects that you can take home and complete.
