Zumbini™ With Sindi


Zumbini™ is a BRAND NEW music and movement program for children, 0 to 3 years, to attend with their music-loving (Zumba loving!) caregiver(s). Class is fun, energetic, and full of contemporary music with world beats. It is child appropriate, grown-up friendly, and of course, full of the “zumba” flavor. Children learn to dance, sing, and move through class using their bodies, rhythmic instruments, and scarves, to enhance the rhythm and feel of the music.

My mission as a licensed Zumbini™ instructor is to introduce music and movement to children at a young age, so that it becomes a part of their life style. I want families to enjoy singing and dancing together, in this fun environment, free from performance anxiety, but rich with engaging energy! In this class the parent or caregiver can spend time and bond with their child in a truly fun way, that they both enjoy. All children love music! My objective is to nurture that love of music and dance so that as a child grows and develops, music and movement continue to develop as well….. we are not inactive listeners, we are music makers! And music shakers!

Each class is 45 minutes. Each session is 12 weeks. The music changes every season. Each family receives 2 CD's along with a beautifully illustrated story/songbook.

On the Upper East Side, classes are held at Yogi Beans, beginning Tuesday, September 16, 2013.
On the Upper West Side, classes are held at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, beginning Wednesday, September 17, 2013, and Yeoryia Studios, beginning Thursday, September 18, 2013. Click on my website for detailed information about class locations and times.

¡HOLA! - A Playgroup in Spanish


¡HOLA! - A Playgroup in Spanish is a unique, grassroots language immersion program in which kids enter the fun and exciting world of the Spanish language. Play, artistic expression, and socialization are the touchstones of ¡HOLA!'s programs, which implement a combination of teacher-led and unstructured play.

Designed to provide a great introduction or boost to your child's emerging Spanish skills, ¡HOLA!'s classes are taught through the use of visual and auditory/verbal input including music, games, props, art, movement, play, and literacy, engaging children in a multi-sensory learning process. Programs focus on a wide repertory of concepts to build vocabulary and help children acquire the correct use of phonetics while also enhancing their cognitive abilities, fine/gross motor skills, and social and artistic capabilities.
