Movement & Dance and Physical Education
Movement & Dance
Pre K to 3rd Grade Students will engage in Movement and Dance class. Children develop coordination and strength as they move. Additionally, the class assists in providing a cognitive loop between the idea/ problem and the outcome or solution. At the same time it is promoting psychological health and maturity. Students learn to improve their communications skills, build confidence and reduce their shyness and anxiety. Dance class aids in fostering social encounters, interaction and cooperation. The cooperation that takes place in dance class helps students understand themselves in relation to others as they build trust, create friendships, exercise and have fun.
