Early Years Workshop: Forest of Fun 22 Jul 2023

Join dance artist Monica Muñoz as we discover animals who live in the forest in this joyful dance workshop for little ones aged 2-4 and their grown-ups.

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.
