Are you looking for fun and affordable summer activities for your kids? Join Ana Burres at Sensory Tool House, LLC for a children’s dance and movement class this summer.
As a lifelong dancer, movement instructor, and music therapy student, Ana Burres is skilled in facilitating the benefits of music and movement. Movement provides stress reduction and mood support, which children need more than ever after experiencing the increased global stress in recent years. Intentional movement also helps improve attention, sleep, and body awareness. Most importantly, moving is fun!
Participants will have the chance to connect with themselves and make new friends in a supportive environment. Like all events at Sensory Tool House, the sensory room will be available during the class if anybody needs a break. Before or after class, you can spend time trying out fun products like swings, balance boards, fidget toys, and much more. This class is intended for children 5-12 years old developmentally. It will be offered on Wednesdays and Fridays 10:30-11:30 a.m. during July and August. Summer can get busy; reserve your spot now. Not sure which dates you can make it? Purchase a punch card to drop in on the dates you can!
