The goal in working with children first experiencing dance is to discover movements that come naturally to each individual and then to build strength with alignment and technique.
Always referring back to that which is natural, this process done with time and patience, enables the emergence of a person who is comfortable with movement and who has an inner knowledge of their physical body and how to care for it. The ability to cross the room with inner grace and confidence becomes a metaphor for living our lives.
Health through Movement
Humans are energetic beings who must move in order to maintain health emotionally, physically and mentally. A body that does not move is like a machine left to sit in the rain. Over time it breaks down and deteriorates. What that machine needs most is to be fed with the best of lubricants and to move as it was meant to move.
Movement in the Public or Private School Classroom
Movement Class as a part of school curriculum becomes very important for the sake of the children, creating positive effects on their emotional, social, mental, and physical wellbeing.
Through movement the child can be touched on all these levels and through positive reinforcement evolve into healthy, compassionate, confident adults.
We do not learn just by seeing and hearing. Learning through physically moving can create a kinesthetic aspect to the lesson with internal and physical knowledge supporting an understanding of the subject.
Learning is a gathering of information that shapes us in our pursuits and approach to living in this world with other beings.
There is a kaleidoscope of possibilities in working with groups of children gathered together to learn.
