2021 Philadelphia Family LOVE Award Winner: Best Music Class

Family Focus Media has been building community with Main Line Parent and Philadelphia Family since 2010 and our annual LOVE Awards celebrate the BEST local resources for families, thanks to thousands of nominations like this one:

"Ruark offered socially distant music classes for kids and parents at Julian Abele park in Graduate Hospital from spring 2020 until cold winter weather forced us to pause until spring. His classes were the highlight of every week, and we often invited friends and family with children to join in on much-needed, safe, in-person fun during this challenging time. Ruark kept things light and gave my now 11-month-old son some of the only interaction he's with other children in his little life. My son absolutely loved Ruark's classes, with his modern spins on old kid-friendly classes and Ruark's original tunes. Ruark makes classes just as fun for adults with the pop and rock music covers he mixes into each class. Thank you Ruark for a wonderful pandemic-era experience and the opportunity for community connection in an isolating time!" - Kelly T.

"We recently moved to Philadelphia and have a young son. A friend recommended Ruark's class to me and my husband. I was a bit shy the first time we went. Not knowing anyone when we arrived and everyone in masks, it was all a bit intimidating. However, from the moment the music started Ruark made everyone feel like they were part of the party. He's kind, welcoming, thoughtful and incredibly enthusiastic. My husband (and even my in-laws!) love coming to join me and my son every Monday. We absolutely LOVE him! :)" - Kristen A.


"Ruark did outdoor classes for us in Fairmount in the midst of the pandemic. While it wasn't the same as the ones I have attended from him before the stay home orders , I don't think my little one noticed the difference. My little squish enjoyed it so much and I loved the little semblance of normalcy. Ruark was a bright spark in this difficult year, and made the most of it despite all the restrictions." - Catherine A.
