Mommy & Me Classes! Learn to play, dance, and move to in Asian-themed atmosphere!
Learn and grow with mother and artist Min Son. This Mommy and Me class provides an opportunity to strengthen the mother / child bond while providing mental and physical developmental milestones for children ages 3 to 5 year old. Children receive their first social experience and moms develop relationships with other parents.

Our teaching is based on a One World philosophy which is mindful of the increased diversity of our society. In this class, Asian culture is explored through music, songs, art, exercise and movement. The class will be both informative and fun. Classes are held at the Crescent Hill Library. Admission is free. No reservations are required.
