Children's Dance at Sportime

I wanted to let all the MOMs know about the children's dance program at Sportime in Lynbrook. I am a former MOMs member and have been running the program at Sportime for 11 years now. We offer classes for ages 2-teen and the emphasis is on fitness and fun! We DO NOT do a recital so we are able to work on so many things throughout the semesters. Come and try our Magical Moves with Mommy (2-3 year olds), Broadway Babes (4 year olds), Kinderbop Combo (5 year old) or any of our cool hip- hop classes for FREE!!
Please contact Sportime at Lynbrook @ 887-1330 or Teresa Alimo @ 816-6662 for more info.  Thank you.

Music Together

Music Together offers mixed age classes for infants through 5 years old.  The mixed age classes are great for bringing siblings to the same class.  It is also a good opportunity for the children to learn from each other.  There are fall, spring, and summer classes, each with a different focus and type of music.  Parents are expected to participate and model for their children.  You'll receive two CDs (one for home and one for the car) and a book of the music.  It's a really wonderful program!

Music Together classes at St. Mark's in Rockville Centre.  Information can be found at

Music Together classes at Broadway Bound dance studio in Valley Stream (on Merrick Rd. across from Valbrook Diner).  Information can be found at
