All in One Rhythm!
Asian Fusion – Get your passports ready and collect some stamps as we “travel” around the globe through music, dance and culture! Our first stop is Asia where we’ll learn how to roll sushi and eat with chopsticks, read about the Dragon Boat Festival and create our own dragon boats, design our own Koinobori wind socks and groove to Boollywood and other Indian dances of Africa!
African Jubilee – The musical traditions and culture of Africa are as wide and varied as the continent itself. We’ll explore different festivals like Fetes des Masques (Festival of Masks) by designing ceremonial masks, make and play on homemade African drums, learn how to write our names in ancient hieroglyphics, read aloud stories such as The Ghanaian Goldilocks and practice some of the many traditional dances of Africa!
Caribbean Carnival – Caribbean carnivals are renowned for their vibrant music, spectacular carnival costumes and flavorful food! While we’re on “island time” we’ll swing through the rain-forest, swim in the sea, climb up to the treetops and stroll by the riverbanks, We’ll learn about nesting turtles, sun basking iguanas, and snorkeling with stingrays.
Latin Fiesta – Shake your maracas and move your feet as we dance and sing to the hottest Latin beat! Eat salsa fresca, churros and other tasty treats, learn Spanish, celebrate with pinatas and papel de picados, make Mexican folk art, read Too Many Tamales and play futbol (soccer)!
Euro Feast – This week, we’re on “holiday” in Europe! We’ll travel back in time to learn about classical music and famous composers, folk music and the opera as well as learn to Irish Step dance! We’ll create Money inspired Water lilies, construct an Eifel Tower, cook fresh pizzas and read Strega Nona. Catch us sipping high tea in England after sightseeing from a double-decker bus while searching for Big Ben.
Party in the USA – From Pop, Rock, to Hip Hop and Country….”we’ll be bobbin’ our heads like yeah” as we travel from coast to coast. Stop in Texas for some BBQ and line dancing, or surf to Hawaii and learn to hula. Don’t forget to walk the runway at Fashion Week in the Big Apple or walk the Red Carpet at a gala event in Hollywood.
