Rhythm ‘n’ Ruach's vision is to give parents and children an interactive and joyful Jewish experience through music and movement.


Rhythm ‘n’ Ruach was founded in 2011 by Shelley Dean in response to her personal desire to find a parent/child music class where she could engage with her own children through Jewish music.   Rhythm ‘n’ Ruach uses widely research based practices facilitating children to develop their innate rhythmic and musical abilities and also is helping to keep the spark of Judaism, strong and vibrant, for parents, kids and grandparents.  Rhythm ‘n’ Ruach continues to grow and has been brought into every Jewish Pre-school,  synagogue, and Jewish Day school in St. Louis in addition to both of the Jewish Community Centers.
