Stomp, strut, and swing with your little ones
A beloved New York City kids' jazz class comes to Seattle!
Your new favorite kids' music class!
WeBop is a young kids' music program created in New York City by Jazz at Lincoln Center and Columbia University.
Kids 8 months to 5 years old stomp, strut and swing to the rhythms of jazz as they learn about rhythms and instruments with director Tanesha Ross and a piano accompanist.
Plus every 4 weeks, we bring in a live band. Super fun!
Children do WeBop with a care-giver like mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, or auntie. We promise this class is fun for adults too.
