Presented by two of the following DC/MD/VA Wolf Trap Teaching Artists:

Valerie Bayne Carroll, Kofi Dennis, Yvette Holt, Sue Trainor, Maria Tripodi, and Sylvia Zwi

The naturally stimulating combination of music and movement experiences impacts healthy physical, emotional, social, cognitive, and language development skills in infants and toddlers. Wolf Trap Teaching Artists will present dynamic, creative, developmentally appropriate movement and music experiences to be used in the home, day care and classroom setting. Participants in this highly interactive workshop will learn and practice arts-based content that can be infused into the daily routine, providing many long-term benefits to infant/toddler growth and development. Includes handout.

Goal: Participants will learn about the inherent connection that music and movement have in infant and toddler development and explore opportunities to apply these sensory experiences in the everyday routines of the classroom and home settings.
