Forest Fun!

Join Mónica Muñoz for this relaxed dance workshop developed for neurodivergent children, Forest Fun!

We are going on a sensory movement journey to discover who lives in the forest. Let’s find some busy bugs, sleepy bears, flapping owls and sly foxes!

Do they have arms and legs like us? How do they move around? Do they like to hide in the trees? Do they wriggle inside the flowers? Or do they even roll in the mud? We will jump, roll, squash, slide and spin. We will also find out how we can build a simple dance forest landscape ourselves using everyday materials.
