URBAN GRIOTS

 

UrbanGriots@TheGathering

A Voice, Rhythm & Movement Playground for Children and Parents

The Urban Griot Playground is an early literacy music education program designed to improve the language and communication skills of children (ages 3-6) through embodied modes of learning. We invite parents to sign-up now!

Voice, rhythm and movement play a fundamental role in a child’s early social and emotional experiences. Through drumming, Urban Griots opens a space of dialogue with children about who they are and how to express their unique character, gifts and point-of-view with confidence. When children learn how to express themselves through the language of the drum, they are empowered to communicate in a different way.

The workshops are open to children ages 3-6 (with adult present) and the duration of each session is 90mins. Cost: $40 due at the time of registration.
