Hudson River Park brings out all of your favorite New York City family performers each Monday evening! From music to magic to interactive storytelling, Hudson RiverKids will keep your family entertained all summer long!
Dan Griffith discovered his passion and unique abilities for working with and entertaining children in 2008 when he began teaching the music program, songs for seeds, at the prestigious NYC Children’s company, “apple seeds.” He immediately became the “go-to” performer there, and went on to manage all music at apple seeds, overseeing and teaching both songs for seeds and Music Together.
Of course, it only makes sense that Dan met his wife and business Partner, Julie Dicterow, at apple seeds. In fact, they met at their interview! Julie has been working with young children since she was a teenager. In addition to being a star performer for songs for seeds, She was one of the first teachers for “FUNdamentals of Music and Movement,” a well-known music program in California, for which she also helped design the curriculum. She has also nannied for many families, giving her a great understanding for what parents and nanny’s look for in a music class.
Dan and Julie went on to teach 1000’s of classes together at apple seeds. In 2014, they tied the knot and used their wealth of experience to creat their own children’s music program, Ramblin Dan & The Freewheelin’ Band. While Dan may be the face of “Ramblin Dan,” Julie helps write and design curriculum and ideas, and also joins Dan often at Parties and Events.
Since they launched the program in Jan 2015, Ramblin’ Dan has already earned a reputation as one of the best kids performers in the city, and is in high demand for both classes and parties.
