Baby and Toddler Movement Class in Action

October 21, 2013

Here is an article recently published that outlines some of my philosophy of why movement is so crucial for babies and toddlers. The reporter attended my Toddler’s First Dance class at Cameron Recreation Centre in Burnaby.

In this class, we use the developmental movement patterns as the foundation for our warm-up. We progress through fun and interactive activities designed to stimulate the child’s senses and challenge the gross-motor movements. Parents and care-gives play an active role inspiring the toddlers and learning how to connect to them through movement.

The accompanying video clip was taken from the toddler and parent class and is a good snap-shot of what fun we have together!
