A Swingset Mamas show is an unforgettable energetic family dance party that builds an atmosphere of joy by playfully incorporating movement, call and response singing, and American Sign Language, while providing an interactive way to reinforce song concepts, creating a shared social experience, and adding to the family fun!
“The Swingset Mamas have a powerful energy that engages children and families to sing along and relay the message of peace, unity and love. Their fresh and catchy tunes allowed the families of Hebrew Wizards to join in the songs, use our hands to sign and our bodies to dance to their catchy SWINGSET MAMA MELODIES. We love the Mamas!”
~Deborah Soloman – Founder Hebrew Wizards Greenwich, Connecticut
