• Get Loose with Mother Goose

    Class Description
  • Dance Exploration, LLC’s Get Loose with Mother Goose class is an upbeat music and movement class that gets toddlers singing, stretching and moving to some of their favorite nursery rhymes. Get Loose with Mother Goose is designed as an interactive, play-time dance class with a goal to introduce dance and movement to toddlers.  Class Flow is designed by the ‘Dance to Learn!’® Curriculum with the whole child in mind and has been created around a child’s cognitive, language, social and motor development to form the 5 Methods of Dance™. Each month, Dance Exploration designs the class around a new monthly theme to keep the classes fun and exciting as part of our ‘Dance to Discover!™ method. For example, our ‘April Showers’ theme could have us dancing to nursery rhymes such as “The Itsy BItsy Spider” or “Rain Rain Go Away!” Each week, the class structure remains the same with classes beginning with a warm up and stretches on the floor and slowly moving to standing as we sing and stretch to our favorite Mother Goose Rhymes.  After stretching, the class dances together in fun singing and dancing activities lead by the instructor. Activities include dancing with props and toys such as scarves, music shakers or stuffed animals. Children are nurtured by their instructor through a positive “Yes!” environment, and the small class size ensures the personal attention needed at this stage of learning. Get Loose with Mother Goose classes include participation in the Dance Exploration, LLC ‘Dance to Learn!’® at Home with Me™ Program!
