Move With Me!
For Ages 18 months to 3 years
Move With Me is a program designed especially for wobbly walkers up to age 3 who are not yet ready to be on their own in one of our preschool programs. This one hour, once a week class, designed by an early childhood education specialist, introduces students (along with their parent or caregiver) to movement key to healthy neurological development. Students and parents should both dress comfortably and prepare to have a great time! Class instructor, Sarah, took a few moments to talk about this fun dance class:
What is your favorite part of Move With Me?
My favorite part of class is witnessing the joy these tiny people experience while discovering different forms of movement and their interpretations to music… they are both funny and brilliant! I enjoy sharing the experience with the parents as they realize how truly creative and capable their children are!
Which song is your favorite to dance to in class?
“All Together Now” by The Beatles is a favorite song for circle dances! (We listen to music from all over the world to get inspired.)
How long have you been teaching dance?
I began formally teaching dance in 2015, although creative movement has also been integral to my early childhood teaching for over 15 years!
Anything else you would like people to know about Move With Me?
“Move With Me” is the only class at a Fort Collins dance studio geared towards children ages 18 months through 3 years old! The benefits of this class include social, emotional, verbal, cognitive, and of course physical development… all through fun and imaginative play!
The thing I loved most about Sarah’s class was the parent involvement, we had so much fun! Not only are the kids getting great exercise, they’re gaining confidence and being entertained. Both my girls were huge fans of the class! -Betsy
