What is MOCUMÚ?
Created and developed by Alejandra González, Director of Taná Dance, Arts & Movement, Mocumú is an innovative dance format for ages 2-6. The purpose is to experience the art of movement through exploration of music and rich cultures of Latin America, while supporting age appropriate motor development. MOCUMÚ classes will be taught in both English and Spanish, giving students an opportunity to further this cultural dance experience. Live music combined with this unique approach to early childhood dance instruction gives both children and their parents an opportunity to experience this art form on a much deeper level. Participating in this class with live music allows for students to develop an innate ability to pick up on rhythms as they learn to express themselves through movement.
