Join creators of immersive performances for babies, Ninth Planet, for a new class that introduces babies and early toddlers to the joy of music and movement inside an intentionally designed play space. Philly Baby Theatre classes will run for 1 hour each week, introducing new ways to engage babies' developing brains.

Artists from Ninth Planet use their skills as theater makers and installation designers to create a sensory environment where caregivers and their babies can engage in relaxing play focused on developing motor skills, social confidence, and secure attachment.

In this relaxed and welcoming space, families with babies can enjoy the experience of live theatre together as weekly attendees or drop in style. Ninth Planet artists are trained in principles of early childhood development, attachment theory, and trauma informed practices. Philly Baby Theatre is designed to reach babies and carers of all abilities.
