Wow! An amazing opportunity to lift your spirits with this world-renowned educator!
Sign up for the March 3rd Session now!
Singing games are a part of every culture and generation. These games provide healthy opportunities for sensory integration while lifting spirits and building community. Singing and moving together in simple or complicated forms appeals to all ages whether at home, in a classroom, or a faculty meeting. They are contagious joy.
This series of seven interactive video classes will highlight singing games for the seasons along with glimpses into why these games remain timeless in their integrity and importance for healthy development.
Participants will discover the abundant complexities of crossing midlines in traditional and new singing games for the youngest and oldest dancers. Come prepared to make the four foundational senses of touch, life, balance and movement come alive as you dance in your Zoom rooms! These games (for children ages eight and under) find their ways into the everyday rhythm of family life as well as bring added meaning to seasonal festivals whether intimate or grand.
Each class will be a LIVE Zoom call with Anna, and participants will have access to the recording (private link) for two weeks after the event in order to better learn the songs.
No experience necessary, just an open heart and willing feet. Participants are encouraged to have on hand a copy of Anna’s book
Singing Games for Families, Schools and Communities prior to the session.
