The Wee Wigglers series takes preschool music and fitness curriculum in a new direction. Featuring carefully chosen songs and activities from today’s leading children’s musicians and educators, the Wee Wigglers programs lead children on a journey through musical and self-awareness in a safe and supportive environment. These programs feature children’s music in a variety of styles, from folk to rock. The Wee Wigglers programs incorporate a broad range of activities, such as yoga, aerobic movement, strength and cognitive development.
Two Wee Wigglers classes, Angels and Buds are currently being offered. Each has been specifically designed to achieve goals, reach milestones, and fundamentally prepare children for a lifetime of healthy living and a love for dance.
In this introductory class for infants (3 months to Walking), participants will develop fundamental motor, cognitive and social skills as caregivers enjoy fitness and socializing with their little ones as well as other moms. This fun, friendly and informative class will inspire you and your little one to explore together, using musical fitness, yoga and play all in a light and nurturing atmosphere.
This one is for little movers and shakers that aren’t quite ready to go it alone (walking to 3 years old). You are your child’s first and most important teacher, moving and grooving together will help your little cruiser develop agility, balance and coordination while preparing them for lifelong health. Children will be encouraged to try new things and begin to assert their independence. Activities will enhance movement, cognitive and verbal skills.
