In The Classroom

Our Mission

An education curriculum that incorporates creative movement concepts as an arts integration approach. The work encourages social emotional growth, focus, fine & gross motor skills through developmentally appropriate lessons. The teaching artists find inspiration in nature, wellness, dance, and yoga.
