Creative Movement with Meghan

Creative Dance and Yoga This combination supports young movers as they practice gross motor skills involved during dancing with the endurance of stretching in yoga. We exercise and align the body as we connect to ourselves, each other and the dance concept of the class such as level, self space/general space or relationship. We will be using various props and music to support our movement. We will also engage in yoga stories, haiku dance and dance activities such as sculptor/clay and puzzle shapes.

Babies Play Music

Arrive 10-15 minutes early to check-in and get comfy before class begins

There is something so amazing about watching babies’ faces light up and their little hands and feet pumping to the beat of their favorite tune. In Babies Play Music, caregivers and babies will sing, play music, and move to new and familiar songs and nursery rhymes. Children will explore the guitar, piano, and percussion instruments. Prepare to revisit your favorite childhood songs, learn a few new ones, and experience lasting and loving memories with your baby through music. Some parents say the best part of this class is making great friends with the incredible parents and children. Others say it’s watching their babies become budding rockstars. Who will have more fun, your baby or you?

    Toddlers Play Music

    Arrive 10-15 minutes early to check-in and get comfy before class begins

    If you know toddlers, you know they can’t sit still. In Toddlers Play Music, caregivers and toddlers will direct this energy into singing songs with finger play, imitation, body movements, and playing instruments during musical games. Children just learning to communicate will enjoy songs that combine sign and voice and lots of repetition. In addition to loud and soft, fast and slow, and high and low, we will also practice one-step directions and listening skills. Expect the unexpected.

    Fiber Optic Exploration

    This class focuses on gross motor skills and sensory integration. It encourages your child in their natural exploration at the Urban Chalkboard with a space for bigger physical movement and the tactile and visual sensation of fiber optic lights. We will be facilitating gross motor stations such as tunnel play, stretchy streamer spider web, movement patterns with rhymes, instrument play, bouncy balls to name a few and then enter a vibrant world of fiber optic lights where they can touch and view different lights as they relax and engage.

    Deconstructed

    Deconstructed Play

    Inspired by Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood learning, Cheyenne will provide provocations and invitations for your child that include natural materials, sensory experiences, small world play, loose parts play, light exploration, messy play, process art, and much more. Playdoh, pinecones, shadows, water, magnets, rocks, fabric, feathers, sticks, the materials are simple and…deconstructed. Each week your child will make sense of the world around them by exploring and investigating materials that provoke wonder, discussion, question, interest, and creativity. Take a moment to sit back and observe what your child is drawn to when the play is open-ended and the learning is self-directed. Deconstructed Play will inspire curiosity and create a language rich learning space for you to engage with your child. This class is included with admission to the play café. Reservations are strongly encouraged and may via the link below.

    Appropriate for children age 12 months to 5 years. Children younger than 3 years of age must have an adult present with them in the studio.
