SUMMER INDOOR SCHEDULE
Boys and Girls
Ages 2 years to 5 years
This program engages kids in important stages of Social Emotional Athletic Development. More specifically, music experiences in early childhood can accelerate brain development. Children think with their bodies well before they think with their words. When movement matches music, it helps our body + mind work together, learn sounds + meanings of words, strengthen memory skills, and experience joy. In this program, SEADlings will play with music, navigate their feelings, practice mindfulness, and move with purpose. Built through a child development lens, each class includes a warm-up, songs complete with yoga poses, breath work, a balancing series, and relaxation.
