High-Line Hoppers: a free class starting Aug 30

At last, here are the details on the free class I've been hinting might happen: 
It's called High-Line Hoppers because it's going to happen under the High-Line (located on the west side of Manhattan) in a performance / community event space called the Lot. 

High-Line Hoppers is an interactive music and storytelling class for children 5 and under and their caregivers taught by Lloyd Miller of the Deedle Deedle Dees (AKA me).
brief description: 
In this highly interactive class, children will explore how to make NYC beautiful and useful via original and classic songs, stories, hands-on activities, and movement games. Our city's youngest inhabitants will learn about cooperation and problem-solving as they sing about real-life heroes in our neighborhood, move and dance like the plants and animals that share the city with us, and listen to simple age-appropriate stories of teamwork and urban renewal. The Lot, a parking lot underneath the High Line re-purposed for community events, is the setting for this unique program.
Ages: 0 to 5 with parents or caregivers
cost: free 

dates: four Tuesdays at 3:30pm: August 30, Sept 6, Sept 13, Sept 20

The class will last about 45 minutes.

The class will be up on this event page soon:

September sing-a-longs & classes

I'm almost ready to post my fall sing-a-long schedule. I'm definitely returning to Waltz-Astoria, Perch, the Moxie Spot, and the Knitting Factory in September but just haven't decided on the exact dates I'll begin.

New stuff:

Sing-a-long in Prospect Heights
We're still discussing the details but I'll let you know if it works out.

Free class in Manhattan
I'm (most likely) going to teach a free class in Manhattan for kids 5 and under at a really cool location. Four Tuesdays at 3:30 starting Aug. 30. Still hashing out the specifics but will post as soon as I know.
