Pacific Symphony Announces Music and Movement Workshops

Parent and MeWhile the smallest citizens of Orange County might have a difficult time telling you exactly why, they love music and dancing too! And on their behalf, Pacific Symphony and Orange County Music and Dance (OCMD) have teamed up to give babies and toddlers a jumpstart on their own development as well as their love of the arts with two unique programs-one specially designed for babies, the other for toddlers-called "Parent and Me: Music and Movement." Parents and their youngsters are invited to take part in a series of innovative workshops with teaching artist Maria Simeone and Pacific Symphony violinist MarlaJoy Weisshaar that will have parent and child dancing, singing and moving together through brain-based learning activities!

The four classes that make up each "Parent and Me: Music and Movement" workshop take place at Orange County Music and Dance, 17620 Fitch Ave. in Irvine. Each registration includes one parent and one child; parents wishing to register more than one child in the same class should plan to bring an additional adult with them to maintain the one-to-one, parent/guardian-to-child ratio.

Class dates for "Parent and Toddler" are June 8, 15, 22 and 29, from 10:45-11:30 a.m. Class dates for "Parent and Baby" are June 8, 15, 22 and 29, from 9:30-10:15 a.m. The fee for each four-class workshop is $135.
