Our Mission

Our Mission is to further early childhood development and autism intervention through incredible, affordable and fun sensory-friendly shows and concerts. Our goal is to engage children with important social, emotional and educational topics. We believe that education happens both in and out of the classroom. Every child, regardless of developmental ability or socioeconomic status, should have a right to learn and grow to their fullest potential. Arts-integration in education is a vital tool for expanding young minds and building new, exciting connections between children and the world around them. At Turtle Dance Music, we strive to create a joyful musical experience that supports the teachers, librarians, principals and parents who teach and engage children every day. Our focus is to help the children, as well as the adults, come out of their shells.

About Turtle Dance

Described as, “The most fantastic performance for children I have ever seen”, Turtle Dance Music is a children’s music company dedicated to furthering child development through arts-integration, music, and educational entertainment. We spark children’s curiosity and imaginations through interactive, inclusive musical performances that use a wide range of instruments, stuffed animals, games and music technology. Our 45-60 minute long sensory-friendly performances are geared for Pre-K, grades K-5 and students on the Autism Spectrum. Our performances are also accessible to teachers and administrators who want to have a great time with their kids and laugh a lot! Turtle Dance Music believes that your kids are capable of doing extraordinary things.
