Hop Stops in Hanover and Claremont


We will be re-launching our HopStop series with a combination of outdoor, socially-distanced shows and virtual events this fall with the hopes of returning to fully in-person events when it is safe to do so.

HopStops are free performances designed to entertain and introduce youth to the world of dance, music, theater and storytelling. These performances are participatory, so come ready to sing, dance and clap along—and bring the whole family! HopStops are typically held in both Hanover and Claremont, NH.
