Description: These weekly classes are action-filled for toddlers– full of energy, often on the move, always exploring and learning– and their parents. Together you’ll sing, chant, move, dance, listen, and play simple instruments: all activities that bridge the natural connection between music and movement through four wonder-filled semesters including Dance With Me, Sing With Me, Play With Me, and Clap With Me. Each lesson features movement activities for coordination, body awareness and control, exploration of space, and instruments such as rhythm sticks, jingles, rattles, drums, and resonator bars.
