Dance Exploration, LLC’s Mommy, Teddy Bear and Me™ classes are a child’s first introduction to a structured dance and movement class. This 30 minute parent participation class is designed as an interactive, play-time dance class with a goal to introduce dance and movement to toddlers and preschool aged children ages 18 months to two-and-a-half. Parents and caregivers will enjoy stretching, making noise, dancing and blowing bubbles with their little ones. The class is designed based on the ‘Dance to Learn!’® Curriculum which is focused on the whole child and has been created around a child’s cognitive, language, social and motor development to form the 5 Methods of Dance™. The goal is to have child and caregiver interacting, moving and bonding with each other and the other participants. Children are allowed to explore, create and move in their own way and at their own pace. Activities are suggested and alternative activities are provided to each child and caregiver as needed. Class activities are directed by the instructor and the course of the class may change based on the children and how they are performing and interacting.  Dance Exploration bases their Mommy, Teddy Bear and Me™ class on quick transitions and changing up games and activities as often as possible to keep class fun and the children actively engaged. Class structure and routines are consistent with warm ups, shakers/parachute/scarves, Story Dance Exploration™- a movement based center game without props, Story Dance Pathway™- a movement based obstacle course. Class ends with Teddy Bear Dance time! Teddy Bear Dance time is a time the caregiver can rest and observe as the children create, interact, dance and move with their teddy bears and their classmates. Dance Exploration provides Teddy Bears, but children are also welcome to bring their own. After Teddy Bear Dance time, class ends with an all-time favorite- bubble time to say goodbye!  Throughout class the Dance Educator will discuss each activity, the Method of Dance and developmental stage it focuses on and how the parents can continue the activities at home as part of the ‘Dance to Learn!’® at Home with Me Program™.
