Jungle Shimmy - Magic Oasis
Jungle Shimmy is a unique music and dance adventure through India, Iran, Turkey & Egypt. Children are introduced to exotic instruments, age-old rhythms and traditional dances through familiar nursery rhymes, fun props, puppet friends, ancient fairy tales and magic.
Jungle Shimmy offers a cultural experience for young learners. They discover unusual instruments like Tef, Darbouka, Ghungroo & Zill and sing familiar nursery rhymes in Arabic, Hindi, Turkish, Greek & English. Clap and play rhythms like Masmoudi, Ayoub, Karatchi & Ciftitelli & learn traditional dances from Asia & the Middle East.
There is also a Fit For Life emphasis using dance to allow children to experience and appreciate their own body and understand how to stay fit for life. Authentic Bellydance movements like belly pops, hip drops & spinal rolls open up an exciting new vocabulary of movement that in turn encourages balance, coordination, spatial awareness, creative expression and self confidence.
Each Jungle Shimmy session is woven together by age-old folk tales, interesting facts, games, magic, puppetry & learning fun.
