In a brand-new collaboration with Mons Dansa Dance Company Barcelona, Spain, we bring to life our first DANCE performance based show, perfect for ages 1-5 that explores the many facets of creativity.

¡Ratón en Movimiento!
A New Bilingual Version of Mouse on the Move!
June 24-July 30, 2017
Adapted and translated by Nick Vargas and Maribel Bustamante
Originally Developed and Directed by Janet Stanford and Kathryn Chase Bryer.
This production is now performed in both Spanish and English! Nellie and Amelia are two adventurous mice ready to explore the world beyond their little mouse-hole. They decide to go to La Luna, since it is cat-free and made entirely of delicious, mouth-watering queso (so they have heard). In this interactive play, the audience becomes part of the story through multi-sensory activities.
You And Me (Ages 12-36 months) Be the flower while your child becomes the butterfly! These caregiver and child classes use props and materials to stimulate the senses and promote your child's development of social and motor skills.
My Friends And Me (Ages 3–5) Older children are ready to play on their own! Students play together, develop relationships, and enter the world of make believe. Through the use of music, movement and dramatic play, these classes ignite your child's imagination while flexing his or her problem-solving, language, and physical skills.
These workshops are "a la carte" programs designed for caregivers to take with their child, providing flexibility and fun as we play. Take one, take a few, or take them all!
