Description

How do we make learning effective, exciting, personal and fun? How do we create curriculum that is functionally oriented rather than fact driven - engaging the learners in a dynamic process in which they absorb understanding, instead of memorizing material? Through Awareness Through Movement® lessons, discussions, and movement explorations, we will engage in our own creative process to discover how we can spark curiosity, foster creativity, enhance self-image, and create life-long learning. In the spirit of experiential education, a group of children will visit our workshop as we experience with them “Creative Learning through Movement.”
