Mondays (January 8 – February 12)

Toddler Time! (9 months - 3 years) 9:00-9:45 a.m.

Come crawl, stand, bounce, waddle, and do your toddler dance.  This fun winter class will keep your toddler going (out of that snow suit) using instruments, balls, parachute, bubbles and more.  Toddlers will have a chance to play music, dance and move to songs, and read some fun stories.

Drums and Fun (1 - 5 years) 10:00-11:15 a.m. 

This two part class will begin with drums, as we explore various drums and try our hand at some fun rhythmic songs.  When our hands get tired we will move to part 2 of the class and have a chance to dance and move to fun styles of music.  Freeze dance, musical mats, and other fun dance games will be used during our dance party.

Tuesdays (January 9 – February 13)

Songs from around the World (16 months - 6 years) 9:00 - 9:45 a.m.

This music class will introduce children to songs from around the world.  We will begin with a “hello” song, saying “hello” in various languages and then sing songs from around the world.  Instruments and props will be added to our experience to enhance the learning and fun.

Fridays (January 13 – February 16)

Stretch, Dance, and Create (30 months - 5 years) 9:00 - 9:45 a.m.

This two part class will teach children about stretching, yoga, and meditation.  We will use animals as a tool to help understand different stretches.  We then will take ourselves to the art table and have a chance to draw or paint as we listen to various styles of music.

Sing, Dance & Play (6 months - 4 years) 10:00 - 11:15 a.m.

How about a time to play and explore instruments, a time to dance and move with fun props like scarves, stretch bands, and bubbles, and a time to use the balls every week? This class is designed to get out all that winter energy in an exciting, song-filled way. This class will teach social skills, music and dance skills, and some fun
developmental skills.
