Dance Me a Story

Friday, August 28th @ 10:30am

Taught by Lisa Oster, a dance teacher from Darlington Arts Center.

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. I use dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). I also incorporate a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down."

Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own. --Follow Ms Lisa & "Dance Me a Story"

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED & opens at 10am on August 1st as space is limited! For ages 2-5

Geared to the physical level of development of our youngest babies, the primary focus in this program is a secure setting for infants who are not yet walking. This gentle yet lively storytime features bouncing and tickling rhymes, peek-a-boo games, short books, nursery rhymes, and music while the young babies sit comfortably close to their caregivers without the distraction of more mobile babies. The storytime is about 15 minutes long followed by a playtime featuring a variety of age appropriate toys. Registration is not required.

This program is not appropriate for older babies or siblings who are walking.

Dance Me a Story

Friday, September 11th @ 10:30am

Taught by Lisa Oster, a dance teacher from Darlington Arts Center.

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. I use dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). I also incorporate a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down."

Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own. --Follow Ms Lisa & "Dance Me a Story"

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED as space is limited! For ages 2-5
