WeBop Big Umbrella Festival CLASSES MAY 5

WeBop is excited to offer three classes in conjunction with Lincoln Center Education’s Big Umbrella Festival on Saturday, May 5. The Big Umbrella Festival is the world’s first month-long festival dedicated to arts programs for children on the autism spectrum and their families. Set during Autism Awareness Month this April, the festival is an outgrowth of Lincoln Center Education’s long time commitment to making art accessible in all forms to diverse audiences. For more information on the Big Umbrella Festival, please visit bigumbrellafestival.org.

WeBop classes are 45 minutes in length and are structured as a child-adult dyad, with participation from both child and adult. During class you will be invited to stomp, strut, and swing to the joyous rhythms of jazz through movement, songs, storytelling, and play.

Please contact WeBop at 212.258.9922 or webop@jazz.org for more information.

Tickets will be available on February 5, 2018.

Low-sensory classes are designed for children that may have specific sensory sensitivities. These classes will include one teacher and one accompanist. The high-sensory class will include three additional musicians (bass, drums, and trumpet) in addition to a teacher and accompanist.
