It’s time to get moving! Movement is crucial for the overall development of today’s elementary aged children. It is also a fantastic way for our students to gain a deeper understanding of the musical concepts they are learning in the general music classroom. Come explore diverse ways to integrate movement into your music curriculum. This workshop introduces a wide range of movement and dance activities to engage and excite students from PreK through 5th grade. Grab your dancing shoes and get ready to move.
