Intellidance® is a series of creative dance programs, created to foster critical development in children ages of 0-5. Research shows that dance and music activities offered in a loving, safe, multi-sensory environment, enhance life long learning and neural development.
Intellidance® Tots offers a lively environment for independent movers and their caregivers, to experience the joy of dance and movement together. Kids love to figure things out, and this class will provide opportunities to problem solve together through movement concepts, while gaining balance, flexibility, and co-ordination. Animated story telling, songs and rhymes, instruments, props, and simple choreography will add fun and excitement!
