Zumbini®

Designed to let you and your little ones 0 to 4 years old wiggle, sing and learn together, the Zumbini® program is where the science of child development meets the magic of Zumba®.

Music is fun and ZUMBINI® provides a wonderful opportunity to bond with your child. Be ready to dance, sing, move and make music with your little one all while they build their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development skills. It is 45 minutes of uninterrupted time with your baby, toddler, and/or preschooler! The extra 15 minutes of class will give you time to receive support and resources from one of our ECFE parent educators and chat with other families.

Each family will also receive a Zumbini® bundle, including CD, song lyrics, parent tips and digital access to the 20 original songs of each session and a cute stuffed doll. Please go to Zumbini.com to find out more about this music and movement experience!
