Toddler and Me (Not offered fall 2020)

Time: Tuesdays, 6-6:30 p.m. OR Fridays, 9:30-10 a.m.

  • Enrollment Cap: 5 students per section
  • Cost: $120 (includes prop bag)
  • Age: walking-3 years

Toddler and Me introduces toddlers to music and dance, encouraging them to explore the world alongside their adult! Toddlers and their adults will stretch, sing, move, play instruments, learn finger plays and rhymes, and explore pre-dance activities; these activities facilitate brain development and caregiver-child bonding. The Fall 2020 session of Toddler and Me will be a virtual class taught through Zoom. The goal of the class is to help toddlers and their caregivers experience music and movement in a meaningful way the caregivers can replicate throughout the week. While the teacher will be on the screen leading/guiding activities and giving real-time feedback, the focus for toddlers will be the interaction with their caregiver, not interaction with the screen. A supply bag of props and instruments is included with class tuition. Toddlers should already be able to walk when they join this class and are welcome to participate through age 3!


Arts for Tots (Virtual Class)

Arts for Tots

  • Time: Tuesdays, 5:15-5:45 p.m. OR Fridays, 10:15-10:45 a.m.
  • Enrollment Cap: 5 students per section
  • Cost: $120 (includes prop bag)
  • Age: 3-5 years

Arts for Tots is an independent class for ages 3-5 that combines dance and music learning! Students will sing, listen and move to music, be introduced to the foundations of ballet technique, and develop basic body awareness, coordination, and control. The Fall 2020 session of Arts for Tots will be a live, virtual class taught through Zoom and is 30 minutes long instead of the typical 60-minute in-person class. The virtual class will be capped at a small number of students per section to allow for direct interactions between the teacher and individual students during class. Caregivers are encouraged to participate alongside new students (especially the first few weeks) to help them follow along with the activities and get used to the class format. The class will focus on music and movement activities that can engage young children and encourage their artistic growth in a virtual classroom setting. Special focus will be given to helping students develop and use their singing voice, as this can be done safely in a virtual class setting, and 3-5 is a key age for developing pitch sensitivity and pitch-matching abilities! A supply bag of props and instruments is included with class tuition. A class dress code is required to help facilitate focus and freedom of movement for students (see dress code requirements for details).

M&M’s is an independent class for ages 5-6 that combines music and dance learning! The fall 2020 session of M&M’s will be a virtual class taught through Zoom and is 45 minutes long instead of the typical 60-minute in-person class. The class will focus on music and movement activities that engage young children and encourage their artistic growth in a virtual classroom setting. The virtual class will be capped at a small number of students per section to allow for direct interactions between the teacher and individual students during class. Students will sing, listen and move to music, expand their musical vocabulary and skills, and engage with music in a fun way that prepares them for life-long enjoyment and participation in music making. Special focus will be given to helping students develop and use their singing voice, as this can be done safely in a virtual class setting and ages 5-6 is a crucial age to develop a lifelong love of singing and a repertoire of cultural songs. During the dance portion of class, students will work on the foundations of ballet technique and vocabulary to develop physical strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, spatial awareness, and mental focus. The skills developed in this class will provide students with a solid music and movement foundation that sets them up for success regardless of what musical instrument and athletic area they choose to pursue in the future. A supply bag of props and instruments is included with class tuition. A class dress code is required to help facilitate focus and freedom of movement for students (see dress code requirements for details).
