"My daughter and I LOVE Groove.
"My daughter absolutely loves GROOVE and she dances all the time around the house and she gets super excited when we put the CD on in the car. :) So I thank you and the musicians for encouraging her love of music and dance!"
"Moms in the neighborhood are always chatting about activities for the little ones and I always endorse Groove wholeheartedly and will continue to do so. Thank you so much for everything, and thank you to your amazing staff."
"Groove is one of those places that always brings a smile to my face. Both my little ones took music classes there from 6 months old- and they just LOVED it! I also loved going there as a new mom, as everyone there was so nice and supportive!! What a great place for babies and toddlers to hang and dance and make friends!
"I was in town for 10 days and found out about Groove through an online search. I took my daughter to a class and they were so warm and friendly and accommodating. My daughter absolutely loved the class and we have been back 4 times just on this visit. The classes are high energy, engaging, and fun for both the kids and adults."
"Groove is a wonderful business that uses music and the arts to empower children to be creative and socially aware. Owner Lesley Barovick is a local mom and Groove showcases the best our community has to offer.
"This place offers the greatest musical start for the little ones. The teachers all share their love for kids together with their musical genius".
"Our kids both love to go to Groove for classes and parties. The staff is fun and friendly. You are never too young for Groove..they have fun events for even the youngest children. A great low pressure low commitment way to give your kids an introduction to making music."
"My son so completely loves your music class — so does his babysitter who is visibly excited every Tuesday morning when she gets to work because she’s looking forward to it so much. Thanks for creating such a great experience!"
"Groove is the warmest, coolest, most innovative, most welcoming place for families of every stripe -- especially with young kids -- in Larchmont! As a mom in a two-mom family, Groove is one place in Larchmont where I feel utterly at home and included, with or without my kids!"
"Directed by Lesley Barovick, a classically-trained musician and mom of two -- she headed up Lincoln Center’s jazz development efforts under Wynton Marsalis in a previous life -- the Aardvarks program, featuring original rock, blues, and folk-influenced music and chants, free-form dance breaks, and instrumental jam sessions in a sunny, high-ceiling studio with a punchy purple floor, is a welcome alternative to traditional yawn-inducing classes."

"Groove gets both the adults and the kids engaged in a way that is incredibly fun. I have taken both my boys to plenty of music classes before this where I found it so hard to want to participate. Groove turned that all around and I could see that other parents and caregivers were psyched to join in the fun. This made it easy for our kids to model our behavior and learn MUSIC=FUN! Forever grateful to Groove for cultivating a lifelong love of music in our kids."
"I am a mom and a nanny. Having done EVERY possible children’s class in Westchester over the past 30 years, I can say without a doubt that Groove is the best around! Amazingly fun, friendly, caring, talented staff! I look forward to class each week."
"I have 3 kids and have been to many, many classes and this was the first class that was enjoyable for both me and my daughter! I loved it! Thank you!"
"We are really impressed by your staff of musicians. They are talented, engaging and a lot of fun -perfect for a room full of kids and their exhausted parents/caregivers. My kids enjoy their weekday class so much we come to Saturday Jams as often as possible. Thanks for providing such a great service."
"The class was upbeat, bright, fresh and colorful and my son did not stop dancing until he collapsed in exhaustion halfway through.....all part of my master plan! I was impressed with how very professional the musicians were and I can’t wait for the next class! I think that for my very physical toddler, Aardvarks is just the ticket!"
