Get ready to dance letters, do puzzles with your bodies, and move like an animal!
In this class, we will do fun movement exercises to teach children letters, numbers, vocabulary, & body awareness.
Body Brain Kids teaches letters and numbers to 3.5-6 year-olds using fun movement exercises. Attending one 30-minute session a week will strengthen a child's foundation for writing and math and develop their body awareness.
Each Body Brain Kids session begins with brain connectivity exercises that prepare the brain for learning. The children then do vocabulary exercises based around a letter to help them write the letter and to learn the sound of the letter in context. At the end of each session, children work with numbers, using movement exercises to develop their conceptual understanding of basic math, shapes, and patterns. It is so much fun!

No shoes please! Socks are okay and bare feet is great!

Upcoming Schedule for Dancing the Alphabet! 3.5-6 year-olds ~ Body Brain Kids
Jessica loves working with young children! Dancing the Alphabet was developed by Jessica following her ten-year professional dance career. After working in California preschools through the Americore Jumpstart program, she was frustrated how learning mainly occurred while children were sitting still. She went on to develop the Dancing the Alphabet curriculum through classroom experience while teaching hundreds of students a week in Brooklyn preschools. During that time, she sculpted the curriculum to become the engaging, impactful and FUN set of exercises that it is today.
Prior to her teaching career, she danced in one of the top dance companies for ten years and toured all over the world. She helped choreograph the 2008 opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics with her company.
