Lost Art of Music and Movement

Children in today society are living more sedentary lives and their opportunities to engage in open music and movement activities are lessening. Come and join in to bring back the lost art of music and movement to the classroom. Educators will have an opportunity to engage together in joyful and fun activities that relate to music and movement to support children in healthy physical, mental, and emotional development. The session will look at the theory behind why music and movement are an important part of children's lives and why it is being lost in todays technology-based society. Educators will take away research, tools and experiences to share with the children and families in their program to reignite the passion for music and movement.
