Creative Movement is a delightful exploration of how the developing body moves through space, how joints and bones work together and how music influences our bodies to move. This 18 week curriculum includes, opposites, tempo, anatomy, directions, sequencing, pathways, rhythm, improvisation, shape and so much more. This introductory course spans a large amount of movement vocabulary while teaching the basics of how to take a class. Patience, clear direction and encouraging language are the framework that shepherds these young movers through a class
Teaching philosophy: I have a very strong philosophy of respect in the classroom. Student to teacher, Teacher to Student ,Students to each other, the space and the learning environment. Every student is an individual that learns in a unique way. My job as a teacher is to choose the best language and examples to create a stimulating and playful learning environment. I choose to eliminate negative words in the classroom like” No”,” not” or” wrong.” I believe in transparency in teaching and crave an authentic and healthy relationship with both my students and their families.
