Mixed Ages

Our mixed-age classes are perfect for families who wish to bring two or more children of different ages to the same class, or for parents who simply prefer a mixed-age setting for their child. These classes allow infants through five-year-olds—and their caregivers—to gather together for a fun-filled learning experience. We will help you modify movement activities, group dances, and instrument-play activities for each of your children.

Mixed-age classes offer the perfect setting for weekly family bonding time and inspire ideas for more music exploration, play, and fun at home
