Based on Brain Dance research, Moving Stories with Camerin is a story time, incorporating guided movement for kids aged 6 months to 6 years old. This workshop combines dance, music, and stories to engage small movers and their caregivers in age-appropriate mobility skill development. Movement is focused on Brain Dance techniques (Anne Green Gilbert), encouraging movement patterns that re-enforce the mind-body connection and contribute to brain development. Each class focuses on a book and uses the story as a catalyst for movement development and exploration. Care-givers are expected to interact one-on-one with their children, offering an exciting experience for student and care-giver alike. Moving Stories is sponsored by CANNON SCHOOL, an independent JrK-12 college preparatory school.
