WINTER MUSIC & MOVEMENT CONCERT FOR KIDS
Presented by: TURTLE DANCE MUSIC
Turtle Dance Music has a unique style for working with
children. We love people who march to the beat of their own drum. Our
flagship program which has been hailed as 'fantastic", "fun", "turtle-iffic!"
and "the best show we have ever had" is the Inclusive Music and Movement
Concert For Kids! a humorous and animated performance that appeals to
children as well as families! The show is incredibly funny and parents
have said things like, "My five-year-old loved the show at the Lebanon
Fair. She never stopped laughing." The show is also designed to be
accessible for children and teens with special needs. We have developed
all of the activities and techniques in the program based on research
from the Autism Intervention and Early Childhood Development Program at
Montclair State University and from ideas and schools of thought from
New York University, Columbia University and Montclair State University.
Turtle Dance Music leads the audience through songs that span many
genres and decades while accompanying them with hands-on, visual, and
sensory experiences that children can take part in. We use several
different instruments that children can try out including: Acoustic
guitars, Banjo, Technology, Viola, Bass, Saxaphone, Harmonicas, Electric
Violin, Didgeridoo & many more!
