Music and Movement

Appreciation of Beauty: Tiferet

Children ages two and older attend half-hour classes of music and movement where they engage in yoga, singing, dancing, and instruments. Our teacher for this class weaves wonderful stories with puppets, songs, and sign language into each week. We want our children to learn to appreciate all things beautiful that make a community more harmonious and joyful. Children ages two and older practice yoga and meditation classes where they learn basic poses, breathing techniques, body awareness and relaxation techniques.

Art at B’nai is all about the process of discovery. Children focus on being creative and gain confidence to explore, experiment and problem solve.

Meet Ms. Karen!


My name is Karen, and this is my first year with BICDS. I am originally from Maine and have lived in Gainesville for 7 years. I have been in education for more than 30 years with most of that spent in early elementary grades. I have worked in preschools for over 10 years now and love it! I like to share my love of reading with each music lesson and make connections that are lifelong for the children. My hope is to bring an appreciation of music, movement, and reading to all!
