Creative Movement Riverside Class for Young Children

Edison & Ford Winter Estates is offering a new Creative Movement Riverside Class for children ages two through six and an accompanying adult. Classes will be led by yoga instructor, Brittany Robbins and will be held the second Monday of each month from September through February on the riverside portion of Edison Ford.

This class offers young children the opportunity to explore creative expression and movement through song, dance, and basic yoga postures. Movement can help children to process and express their emotions. Participants will be thinking creatively, working collaboratively, and developing their sense of personal and shared space.

Registration is required. For more information and registration, contact Leeanne Criswell at or 239-334-7419.

Cost: Payment required - Edison Ford members $5 (one adult, one child) or $25 for all 6 classes; nonmembers $10 (one adult, one child) or $50 for all 6 classes. Each additional child $5.

This event repeats monthly on the 2nd Monday for 6 times: from Jan 9 to Feb 13.
