This class will introduce children to the world of theatre, music, dance, and imagination! We will warm up our bodies, voices, and imaginations as a group with theatre games and songs. Children will learn from watching the grown ups and also begin to find their own ways of expression. Inside our treasure trunk will be different costumes or props to spark our imaginations for a brand new exploration each week. Using the contents of the trunk, we will go on a magical adventure together using our imaginations and guided by live music. This is a parent/caregiver participation class.
