What do children need most in these strange isolating quarantine times?
To move their bodies, and explore their imaginations in new ways, while bonding with friends. André guides students through technique, rhythm, acting and more through movement storytelling and musical interpretation. Lessons flow according to what the children connect with most, never forcing anything, yet encouraging everything! Students develop their self-confidence, self-awareness, proprioception and athleticism.
Lessons are structured to go at the students pace, allowing them to learn something exciting and challenging enough to keep them practicing. They'll build upon new skills each lesson, develop their own dance moves and choreography, all while getting a great mental and physical workout.
André encourage students to explore limits and take chances by using the world around them to create stories, while developing kinesthetic and emotional awareness. The many benefits of moving our body to melodies and beats is an exceptional way to create physical and psychological relief and stability.
