A series of music and creative movement classes for children two years of age to celebrate your child’s natural ability to move in an expressive way. These weekly 45-minute classes are designed to engage children, parents and caregivers through group and individual participation which is vital for early childhood development. Share the joys of music and movement through rhythm and dance as instructors guide your child through fun, playful dance exercises. Music will accompany the class and will enhance basic musicality through drumming rhythms. Your child will develop body awareness and control while exploring his or her own creativity to understand the connection between dance, rhythm and music.
