As you know, anyone working to better the lives of children is a friend of mine and an honorary part of the DwellStudio team. I am also a firm believer that kids benefit in extraordinary ways from constant exposure to the arts. I have seen this first hand in teaching and participating in the exemplary work done by the Children’s Museum of Manhattan.
Last week I was lucky enough to attend a great event hosted by the lovely Moms and the City ladies featuring the amazing Pierre Dulaine and his students from the Dancing Classrooms program to celebrate the new book “Carla and Leo’s World of Dance” by Agatha Relota which introduces amazing traditional dances to children.
I was completely amazed how the dance transformed the children from kids into completely poised dancers worthy of a world-class stage. My daughter and son were transfixed. We have read the book and tried the dances every morning since. It’s worth a read and the dances are absolutely worth a try.
