Story Dancing- Jelly Jam Time's main squeeze!

Perfect for your Preschool, Daycare or Kindergarten!!!!

Ages 3-8

 

In this class, everything moves. A story comes to life, and teacher Risa gracefully guides the students through a dramatic story adventure with dance and movement activities, theatrical play and storytelling extraordinaire. Each 30-60 minute - long class explores one story in depth and we become all of the many components of the tale- the silent and the loud, the fast and the slow, the good and the bad, much to the delight of all the participants. Older children create their own stories after getting familiar with the structure.

Risa can cater stories to support your sites' curriculum and interests.
