and the best part is we travel to you.

RHYTHM MOVES

RHYTHM MOVES brings creative dance and yoga to preschools and daycares centers across Connecticut. Children involved in RHYTHM MOVES programs grow and thrive creatively, artistically and physically. They learn self-awareness; gain self-confidence and a sense of community.

RHYTHM MOVES ~ Combining creative dance movements based on jazz and ballet techniques, along with kids yoga, RHYTHM MOVES is a preschool dance program of Fitness and Fun! Dance provides kids to jump shake and get their giggles while enhancing   their flexibility, coordination and enhancing their motor skills. Dance also helps to strengthen a child’s core, helping them to stand taller and have strong bodies. The Yoga component of class helps to teach focus, attention, and concentration. RHYTHM MOVES programs incorporate games, music, props and   stories to accomplish the benefits while having FUN!
