Semester Playlist

Every Semester has a Semester Playlist we use for our curriculum. Listening to it often at home will greatly enhance your child's experience in class. Read more about our playlists here.



The Jewish Center

131 W 86th St, NY, NY 

10th Floor, The Blue Room

To the left of the main entrance on 86th st, there is an automatic door and ramp for strollers.  

This is the easiest way to get in. Please leave strollers in the lobby downstairs.
There is also a coat room in the lobby, and we prefer you fill that room with strollers first before parking in the main lobby.  Otherwise, please simply park them as neatly as possible together.  

When you get to the 10th floor go straight out of the elevator towards the bathrooms.  Before you get to the bathrooms you will see a BIG room on your left that has wall to wall carpet.  Class will be in there.


-The class has AC units and windows that we can crack open.

"Classroom” Etiquette: 
-Shoes off inside please
-No solid food or pouches as it is distracting for other kids and also could make a mess.
-Bottles/nursing/ and non-staining drinks are fine for your kids though :)
-For parents drinking coffee, smoothies, etc please make sure you always put your drinks in a safe place or in a spill safe container. We don't want to ruin any rugs! Lol
-If your child is still not sitting up or crawling, we recommend bringing a baby blanket for them to more comfortably roll around on the ground :)


What to Bring!

-1 or 2 dancing scarves for your child, which we use every 2-3 classes.

-If you have a young infant who is not sitting up yet on their own or is still spitting up,

please bring a thin blanket for them to roll around on and to protect the rug from spit up (lol).

We will supply instruments for kids to jam on in in class! (which we clean after each class) We do ask that you buy yourself some instruments so your kids can jam at home! Playing music at home will give them a chance to explore all they have learned in class.
