NEW YORK, Tuesday, October 14, 2008 -- The First Wave, LLC

The First Wave, LLC announces the release of Come Dance With Us, a cute, new educational product for parents and young children. This time, the Company has produced a funny, enjoyable CD with catchy songs. It contains new lyrics and music, teaching young children about time, geography, phonetics, arithmetic, and many other subjects through music.

Co-founder Melissa Neumann says, “Children learn through music, such as the ABC song and Old MacDonald. My mother, Dolores Ormandy Neumann, created these educational songs years ago, many of which I learned as a child. Educators have discovered that children can learn and remember concepts particularly when these concepts are set to music and rhythm. The music is engaging and allows the songs to be repeated and remembered. We hope they will be sung for generations to come."

Come Dance With Us is narrated, arranged, and performed by Rob Schwimmer, a distinguished musician, who has performed with many leading artists including Paul Simon and Bette Middler. Rob expresses himself with humor, an essential element when communicating with children. The CD also features the highly gifted vocalist and actress Teresa Williams, who has also performed with many leading artists, including the Levon Helm Band (appearing on his Grammy winning CD, Dirt Farmer). She can be heard as a vocalist on the new PBS children’s series Lomax: The Hound of Music. Teresa displays her acting ability in the CD by successfully taking the part of a young child, teenager, young woman and older woman.

The music was written and composed by co-founder Dolores Ormandy Neumann, the niece of Eugene Ormandy, the world-famous former conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

“I am thrilled that I am finally releasing this music to the public. It displays a life-time of my musical compositions from childhood through adulthood. I think many young children will enjoy listening, learning and dancing to the music,” says co-founder Dolores Ormandy Neumann

Come Dance With Us is a story about a brother and a sister who live on a farm. They attend school, where many subjects are expressed musically. It is the last day of school before vacation and the children take a journey with their parents and grandparents to their Aunt, Uncle, and cousin’s home. Many charming songs are heard as they holiday with their family.

The First Wave, LLC is a leading children’s educational media company dedicated to inspiring a child’s life-long love of learning. The Company was founded by a mother-daughter team, Melissa and Dolores Neumann. The First Wave, LLC has released two award-winning videos for very young children and their siblings, Fundamentals and Fundamentals 2.
