Let’s Dance Everyday! Family Program Series
August 17, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30am on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until November 28, 2017
Celebrate dance, movement, and community all summer long at the Children’s Museum in our brand new exhibit Lets Dance!
Every morning at 10:30 and 11:30am children can participate in dance and movement programs that help us find creative ways to move our bodies. Programs include:
Dance Stories Imagine if your favorite children’s books came to life. Join us in Lets Dance! to create the music and dances for some of your favorite stories.
Mecha Machine Robot Dance! Work together to create an imaginary machine, each playing a separate part that when combined makes our machine move. Explore ways to control your different movements as we dance like robots to the sounds of machines and electronic dance music.
Bubble Wrap Pop Snap, pop, and dance on bubble wrap while exploring different dance styles. Dance to a variety of pop-music and percussion to create your own dance inspired by pops, snaps and beats.
Cue the Theme Music! Superheroes in Training Prepare for the challenge of being a superhero! Train through a series of obstacle course games and come up with special movements inspired by superhero theme music from your favorite movies and shows.
Wild about Dance Using animals as inspiration create dance moves that mimic your wild-side. Explore how your body can create movements to a variety of sounds animals make—from their trunks to their paws.
Funding for these programs is made possible with public funding from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, the NYS Council for the Arts and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Additional support comes from the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund and Jody and John Arnhold.
