Mini Mia

Look, play, and learn with your child at Mini Mia! This free program, on the first Wednesday of each month, features an educator-led gallery tour specially designed for caregivers and little ones (ages 0–5), a movement class with Young Dance, and a cozy story time. Make new friends and introduce your child to the wonders of art in a comfortable, kid-friendly setting.

In Family Dance, children and their caregivers discover the joys of movement through games, stories, and songs. These early classes introduce children to group learning environments while using movement to develop strong bonds with their caregivers. Children also develop large and fine motor skills in classes that emphasize observation, exploration, manipulation, imitation, and repetition.

A front-facing carrier (if appropriate) and comfortable clothing are recommended for this program. Registration is required.
