Bloom Bloom! Interactive Early Years Dance Workshop 30 Apr - 14 May 2022

Celebrate the beauty of Spring through this interactive dance workshop with John Coolahan Early Years Artist in Residence Monica Muñoz.

Meet Blossom, she is delighted that finally spring has arrived. Join her in a sensory movement adventure around a spring day: Hopping, skipping around flowers, leaping and jumping over rivers, meeting caterpillars and butterflies and touching the most perfect sky!

This delightful interactive dance workshop invites little ones and their grown-ups to enjoy imagining and moving together. So if you’re a parent, grandparent, uncle, aunty, godparent or carer, come along with a 2 to 4 year old and join in the fun.

Reminder: Please wear comfortable clothes

This workshop is being delivered as part of Our Seedlings workshops. Our Seedlings workshops offer opportunities for children to explore materials and the world around them through playful and engaging activities. Ideal for getting little ones (and their grown-up!) imagining and creating together. They are devised and presented by Monica Muñoz specifically for early years. Monica is The Ark’s John Coolahan Early Years Artist in Residence 2021/22. You can find out more about Monica below.
