Music and Movement Series

About This Program

In partnership with the Music and Health Research Institute, Music and Movement gives participants an opportunity to learn, feel and express music through playful and dynamic movement activities.

In a typical class, participants move to the music, synchronize body actions with musical rhythms, and follow their partner’s movements. Participants will also interact with other people and objects, react quickly to random signals, echo movement sequences, and follow verbal instructions and musical cues in order to complete activities. Some activities are structured and oriented, while some activities are improvised with creativity.
