Let the Music Move You: Ribbon Dancing

Print Page


Music and movement act as an expressive outlet for us to explore our creativity, release and share emotion, and stay active! The best part? There is no right or wrong way! Music and movement can look and sound exactly how you want it to, and it creates a space for us to process and communicate different thoughts, feelings, and emotions. 

Explore the magic of music by reflecting on the beat, tempo, and rhythm (including the one we carry with us each and every day), and tap into your creative side and create a dancing ribbon wand that represents you!
