Free Dance Classes

Shalom Baby Lounge: Brain Dance for Babies and Caregivers

This free class is designed for babies, who are 2 months to pre-crawling, and their caregivers. Move with your baby to an assortment of music as you learn how dance increases baby’s neurological, emotional, and physical development. BrainDance is comprised of eight developmental movement patterns that healthy human beings naturally move through in the first year of life. Each class investigates dance fundamentals and ideas through multi-sensory experiences and tummy time, and promotes physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.
