Intellidance

What to Expect

1 Weekly Group Session

Intellidance is a unique series of creative dance and music programs created to foster critical development in children ages 3 months to 4 years.

In every class, Intellidance connects a movement concept with a “matching” music concept and uses a “move to learn, learn to move” approach. Each week there is a focus on one music and movement concept, and every class activity reinforces that single concept pairing. For example, when learning about pitch (the highness or lowness of a sound), we will pair the level (highness or lowness) of our bodies with the pitch of the music.

Even though it has “dance” in the name, Intellidance is not a dance class per se. There will be lots of moving and dancing, but children will not be learning dance steps or choreography. Instead, the movement concepts taught support the development of fundamental movement skills, which will carry children forward into every kind of physical activity (sports, dance, etc.) when they’re older.

Every Intellidance class will include opportunities to use props (scarves, balance-building obstacles, and so on) as well as play at least one instrument (rhythm sticks, maracas, bells, drums, etc.).
