- The Movement Studio
A 6-week series designed for kids ages 4-12 to move, stomp, wiggle, and jump to find different ways to express the big emotions that want and need to get out. Each week focuses on a different emotion (anger, joy, anxiety, peace, sadness, excited-ness) to express and release. Together we create a group dance piece expressing that emotion through movement in order to learn how to accept our emotions, express them in safe ways, to release them from the self. We guide kids in finding ways to listen to their bodies and move in response to them. We use exploratory movements to help kids release tension and stress from their bodies. Some movements will be stomping, turning, wiggling, and exploring different ways to express our emotions. This dance class is not focused on dance technique but rather on the expression of self and the emotions within the self. For this 6-week series, we will meet from May 6 to June 24, with no classes on the weekends of Mother's Day (May 14th) and Father's Day (June 18th). In this class, if any parents are comfortable, we invite the parents to participate with the children, as we have noticed that having the parents move and engage with the emotion with their kids actually helps normalize and destigmatize the emotions we are engaging with. More than one kid? No problem, ask about our family discounts!
