Movin’ and Groovin’ kiddie-style (May 28 and Aug. 9)

May 27, 2008

After an unexpectedly extended weekend, I’m back with a quick tip on an event bright and early tomorrow morning (May 28):  an open house for Kindermusik at the Des Peres Lodge from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m.  I’ll admit this is short notice, but my bet is that there are still spaces available (call 314.434.9496 to find out and register).  The objective is to introduce new families to the Kindermusik concept (a combination of movement and rhythm-making that gets kids and parents grooving along with music) in the hopes that they’ll find a summer camp or fall session at the St. Louis Kindermusik Academy that fits their schedule.  It’s also a benefit for the Saint Louis Symphony (a $5 donation to the cause gets you free admission to the open house).

We’re not eligible for the open house because we’re longtime fans of Kindermusik.  M. had a school-year’s worth of weekly classes (thanks to a preschool that hired an excellent Kindermusik instructor, Karen Zelle) and occasional summer sessions too.  He has always loved music, but the classes helped him find the beat and really notice that his body could work in unison with it.

If you can’t make the event tomorrow, there’s another chance on Aug. 9 at the Jewish Community Center’s Marilyn Fox Building in Chesterfield.  The contact number is the same, or you can e-mail
