Last Sunday, Children’s partnered with 89.3 The Current to present Rock the Cradle 2012. This day of family fun saw over 15,000 people, young and old, pack the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and Children’s Theatre Company for a day of live music, dancing, storytelling and a community art project.
What a great day it was! Research has shown that the arts, both making and enjoying, can positively impact cognitive, motor, language and social-emotional development. We were so happy to be part of such a great event that promotes the importance of creativity and the arts for our community’s children.
If you weren’t able to attend, there are plenty of places to see photos and videos from the event:
- We’ve shared some photos on our Facebook page.

Thanks to everyone who attended.
