So what will they be doing at Tot Time on June 2nd?
As part of our Bollywood Tiny Tots program and Children’s Bollywood Dance Classes, we teach basic movements that would be characteristic of South Asian dance styles that are involved in modern day Bollywood music/dance styles. This class will introduce the students to basic movements, counting steps, & improving coordination and rhythm over time. The group will learn some basic choreography to a Bollywood song.
Born 2 Create will also be at Tot Time with some giant sensory bins for the little ones to play in. Tot Time takes place on June 2nd and runs from 10-Noon.
