DANCE, YOGA/MEDITATION, & MINDFULNESS
The Dance Program is founded on the premise of providing a kinesthetically enriched and interdisciplinary curriculum that strengthens the education experience for all students. The dance program plays an integral role in the development of a well-rounded student while also enhancing the learning taking place in other subject areas. The dance program will aid in teaching important life skills while instilling an appreciation for the arts. All elementary students will participate in a weekly dance class and perform in the annual dance concert.
The Yoga/Meditation Program is not only an important component in the growth of the student, but also provides skills that support the learning taking place in other subjects. Through participation in the yoga/meditation curriculum, students will learn techniques that promote strength, coordination, flexibility, and balance. Breathing and relaxation skills will also build focus while promoting self-control, self-esteem, self-confidence, and increase overall body awareness. All elementary students will participate in a weekly yoga/meditation class.
The Mindfulness Program plays an important role in the overall development and learning potential of the student. As an extension of the Yoga/Meditation Program, students will learn basic skills and techniques that can be easily applied to both their academic subjects and everyday life. The mindfulness course will aid students in learning to be present in the moment while focusing on the task at hand. The course is also designed to help students develop a deeper sense of self-awareness while learning to balance emotions, control impulses, and integrate heart with mind. All elementary students will participate in a weekly mindfulness class.
