The Village program is the perfect “Village” atmosphere, where moms and babies come to spend quality fun time together, away from regular routines and responsibilities. Yet they find a comfortable place to explore the social world of a group setting, while singing, dancing, and exploring instruments and props, such as scarves, balls, parachutes, and more. Parents also learn how music truly influences the development of the whole child through everyday interactions with their babies.
Fall Semester classes are offered on Wed. 9:30 am., or Thurs. 12:30 pm. at Explorations V Children’s Museum in Lakeland. Parents (or grandparents) attend with their baby for a 45 min. class once a week.
Many types of rhythms and dances are heard on the CD and explored through movement and instrument play. The book and posters feature fun colorful dancing bears, and provide a movement game to play with the babies, and features a fun repeated phrase, “Boom Pa Pa, Boom Pa Pa, Tango, Cha Cha, 1 – 2 – 3 – Dance with Me, Boom Pa Pa Pa.” The musical recording is almost addicting because it promotes movement through folk music from around the world. Be ready to move, dance, and keep a beat in LOTS of different ways.
