Moving is learning! Does your Pre-K child love to dance and move to music?  Physical movement is recognized by early childhood experts as one of the primary developmental domains of childhood, and this program is a fun way to combine movement with learning.   Children will develop their gross motor skills and coordination as they increase their awareness of musical rhythm and just plain have fun! For ages 4-6. No registration required.
