WeBop®

WeBop® is an early childhood education program inviting families to stomp, strut and swing to the joyous rhythms of jazz as they learn about its core concepts, instruments and great performers. These 45-minute classes developed by Jazz at Lincoln Center in conjunction with Columbia University include child and adult participation, offering a creative outlet to explore jazz together through movement, songs, storytelling and play. 

For children ages 2-5 and their parents or guardians.
