Get Social

Do you want to inspire creativity, health, and joy?

Do you have children in your life who need healthy outlets, struggle to focus, feel anxious, or seem socially disconnected?   You are not alone.

This dance program is designed to support your family.

The 26 DANCE CONCEPTS  in the  Animals Get Funky!  dance book and music program help children of all ages:

  • Feel more confident in creative play
  • Practice balance
  • Develop social skills
  • Experience less stress
  • Express uniqueness
  • Playfully exercise
  • Boost serotonin levels
  • Support brain cognition and cerebral cortex development
