Wiggleworms 12 – 24 months »

At this toddler stage, young children are working on playing with sound and motoring around. Physical development, language development, and musicality are stimulated through musical play. A mix of active walkers and crawlers, this class invites you to make new friends and groove to the beat — now with tambourines, maracas, and jingle bells.

for kids - 6 months to 4 years

In this special class for siblings, families share musical time together engaging in interactive songs and musical play. Older children and younger children leave the class with lots of songs to sing and play together at home. ¡También en español!
