February Parent & Me in Motion

You asked, and we made it happen!
Many families said they’d love to see more Parent & Me programs during the winter, so we got creative with the ever-popular Mama Lisa to bring you a special series this February!

Bring your children ages 2-5 to the Museum for an all new action-oriented version of Parent & Me!  Kids will experience the history of St. Louis through movement.  At 10:00 each day, families will visit a gallery to enjoy a few hands-on activities and one craft.  From 10:25-11:00, families will join professional dancer and storyteller Mama Lisa for an interactive movement workshop!  Each class has a different theme.

Thursdays in February

$7 per class per family
$5 per class per family for Museum members
$20 for four-class series per family
$15 for four-class series per family for Museum members

Registration is required. Register today by calling (314) 454-3161.

Week One 2/7: Pioneer Movement

In the 1800’s many people traveled through St. Louis as they migrated to the West.  Kids will kick up their heels for some folk dancing fun!

Week Two 2/14: Katherine Dunham

Katherine Dunham, who lived and worked in the St. Louis area for much of her life, blended classical movement with African and Caribbean rhythms.  Kids will learn about Dunham’s work in Haiti as they shake and shimmy through progressions of Afro-Caribbean-style dance moves!

Week Three 2/21: African Dance at the 1904 World’s Fair

People from all over the world visited St. Louis during the Fair in 1904, and they brought their native dances with them.  Kids will learn traditional African dances!

Week Four 2/28: Charles Lindbergh

Kids will learn the Lindy Hop and other dances of the 1920s and twirl away, just like the propellers of the Spirit of St. Louis!

Outdoor activities are planned on most days but are subject to weather.  Light snacks will be available.
