International House joins All Around This World, a Philadelphia-based global music and world cultures program for small children, in presenting a monthly series of participatory cultural workshops that will be fun for the whole family. Hosted by All Around This World educators Jay Sand, Emily Bate and Melanie Hsu, each workshop will feature an experienced "culture bearer" from around the world who will invite you and your kids to engage in his or her traditional music or dance; learn samba rhythms or Brazilian capoeria, play a West African djembe or a North African doumbek, chant to tabla "bols." Explore different countries and cultures without having to worry about your toddlers toddling! Each workshop will last approximately 40 minutes and will invite you and even your tiniest kids to sing, dance and clap along. Best for grown-ups and their young kids, infants to 7 years old.
