Explore the green, green grass and all its wriggling inhabitants in this dance and movement workshop inspired by nature for children aged 2-4 with The Ark's Early Years Artist in Residence, dance artist Monica Muñoz.
This workshop includes imaginative play and a range of movements, from rolling on the grass to finding tickling spiders and jumping as high as a grasshopper. Little ones and their grown-ups are invited to travel round the space, flying like beautiful butterflies!
All accompanied by great music and beats from around the world.
This workshop is being delivered as part of Our Seedlings workshops. This workshop has been developed by Monica specifically for the early years as part of her residency with The Ark.
