If I were a kid in Houston and was taken to spend the day at the Baker-Ripley Neighborhood Center located near Sharpstown , jokingly, I might have to ask my parents if I had leukemia or something. There is so much to do for kids of all ages!

Want to learn how to belly dance? Well you can during the summer at Baker-Ripley. Combine the fundamentals of the ancient art form of belly dance and gypsy moves complimented with a modern twist. Okay, so maybe you don’t want to dance, but there are plenty more activities to choose from like Cake Decorating or Arts & Crafts where you can learn to create quality table centerpieces and event decorations for various special events.

  • Learn how to play the guitar and other types of instruments
  • Enjoy reading time with other kids your age
  • Learn how to make your own pinatas for special occasions
  • Take an oil art class
  • Learn the art of making jewelry with various beads and metals as well as design and technique
  • Put on your dancing shoes and get introduced to various Latin dance styles including salsa, merengue, bachata, cumbia, and cha-cha
  • Take a Healthy Cooking course where you can learn how to cook healthy and simple disches
  • Breath, stretch and relax with a Yoga class
All these activities are available for kids and adults. There are even more activities for those 18+ such as Piano Class, Prevention of Sexual Violence, Sewing Club, free Tax Preparation, a Credit Union, and Immigration and Citizenship services. 
So many wonderful services and activities that kids and adults can participate in at the Baker-Ripley Neighborhood Center. If I were a kid living near the area, I think I’d be there every day!
Special thanks to Brooke Browne, Neighborhood Center Online Communications Manager, for giving me a tour of this wonderful Houston Community Center.
