Music and Movement, Every Wednesday
Sing along to music that gets all ages moving! Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers enjoy live music and interact through sound, sight and touch. Grownups and children join in with drums, tambourines, and other noise-makers. Toddlers can meet other children and participate in group activities in this safe and fun environment. All classes are led by trained music educators from Little Groove.

These Noodlehead brothers, Mac and Mac (and their adventures), bring the classic folktale fool into the 21st century—and slapstick, puns, and wacky fun abound!
