Babywearing Dance Class

Join Babywearing Dance class, now every even Thursday of the month, outdoors on the village green in front of the library.

Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early.

If you pre-register, you are guaranteed a spot if the event moves indoors due to inclement weather. Space is limited to 20 people (infants included) in our meeting room to ensure socially distant programs. 

* New mothers should have approval from their physician to resume light-moderate postnatal exercise.
* Children, toddlers and additional caregivers welcome to join. For younger children, it is expected that parents supervise them during class to ensure safety and minimize disruption. All abilities welcome. Modifications available for prenatal dancers / expectant mother (no carrier needed).
* Babies will face in during class for a heart to heart connection.

How to prepare for class:

* Please wear comfy, temperature-appropriate clothing and supportive shoes. For example, wear shoes that can get muddy in case the ground is wet and if it's sunny, make sure to wear light, breathable clothes, sunscreen and hats to shade you and your baby (e.g.).

* Bring a water bottle and your favorite baby carrier (stretchy wrap, mei dai or soft-structured carriers recommmended; feel free to email or speak with the instructor if you are unsure what you have or if you would like a recommendation). 

More about babywearing dance:

Dancing with your baby has many important benefits for baby such as improved muscle tone, increased bone density, enhanced spatial awareness and needed discharge of excess energy that cannot release prior to crawling. Socially, your infant has the opportunity to interact other caregivers as well as observe your interactions with other babies and caregivers, cultivating a deep sense of “family” and social bonding that last long beyond their babywearing dance days.

Once your child reaches toddlerhood, they won’t want to stay in the carrier for the whole class. Your toddler has a natural desire to walk, talk and play with the other babies and adults around them. So in our classes, we invite a blend of on-the-body babywearing dancing with off-the-body toddler-adult dancing. After Year One, your toddler has enough head and neck control that you can dance and sing more exuberantly with baby in carrier. Toddlers are able to identify the songs they have been groovin’ to and begin to mimic the dance movements purely from observing caregivers dance in class.

Friday Morning Book Cafe

Join us for a lively discussion!  This month we are reading Ya Yas in Bloom by Rebecca Wells.

When four-year-old Teensy Whitman prisses one time too many and stuffs a big old pecan up her nose, she sets off the chain of events that lead Vivi, Teensy, Caro, and Necie to become true sister-friends - the Ya Ya sisterhood!  Wells show us the Ya-Yas in love and at war with convention. The Ya-Ya values of unconditional loyalty, high style, and Louisiana sass shine through in crises of faith,hilarious lapses of parenting skills, brushes with alcoholism and glimpses of the dark reality of racial bigotry, 

In the Ya-Yas' inimitable way, these four remarkable women also teach their children about the Mysteries: the wonder of snow in the deep South, the possibility that humans are made of stars, and the belief that miracles do happen. 

After two bestsellers and a blockbuster movie, the Ya-Yas have become part of American culture -- icons for the power of women's friendship. Ya-Yas in Bloom continues the saga, giving us more Ya-Ya lore, spun out in the rich patois of the Louisiana bayou country and brim full of the Ya-Ya message to embrace life and each other with joy.

American Politics & Community Book Discussion Series

American Politics & Community Reading & Discussion Series

"What does it mean to be an American in the 21st century? What does a model American do, and what responsibilities do Americans have to their communities and each other? How have the answers to these questions changed over the history of the United States? The participants in the reading and discussion program "American Politics and Community Today" will engage with these questions and others regarding politics and the current state of civic thought, feeling, and participation." -Humanities NY

Join us as we discuss Talking to Strangers: Anxieties of Citizenship Since Brown V. Board of Education, By Danielle Allen 

Danielle Allen looks at the current condition of civic distrust in America, tracing it back to school integration in the 1950s, and suggests practical ways that Americans can begin to overcome the issues that divide them.

Books are available for check-out from the Rye Free Reading Room. Please register, in advance, for the zoom link.

This Reading & Discussion Series has been generously funded by Humanities NY.
