Our first StoryDance Playgroup was a huge success!

Fri, Dec 09 2016

On Wednesday, Downtown Dance Factory hosted our very first FREE StoryDance Playgroup, and we had so much fun! We welcomed over 40 kids and their parents and/or caregivers into our new 4th floor space. Activities were separated into the three studios. For Story Time, Hanne read the Nutcracker to a very captive and interested young crowd, and then kids and their grown-ups were free to read books on their own. For Craft Time, beautiful tiaras and crowns were created with stickers and crayons and loads of imagination. And for Dance, we had a blast! Miss Vicki, Miss Molly and Miss Amelia led the crowd with dancing and jumping and moving and singing. Scarves were waved, shakers were shaken, bears were cuddled. It's not clear who had more fun ... the kids or their grown-ups!!! We were only sorry it had to come to an end. But we'll see you again next month for our next free StoryDance Playgroup on Wednesday January 4th!
