While we are sad we cannot teach in person, it is our creative fortitude that guides our purpose as performing arts educators. We believe it is a testament to human imagination that we can create so much happiness, learning and growth with our bodies, voices, surroundings and everyday materials - it doesn't take fancy equipment or space, just curiosity.
In response to the pandemic, we are providing several highly engaging activities for the kids to laugh, dance, listen and contribute creatively to online.
Students have opportunities to interact with one another, instead of feeling isolated and tuned out in front of a screen.
In this new online community we know how vital interaction is, so we have designed a curriculum that ebbs and flows from high to low energy activities to entice mental, musical, physical and verbal skill sets and infinite creative possibilities.
Creativity is intelligence having fun!
Dance and music are abundant sources of fun, physical wellness, stress relief, psychological stability and much more. These benefits of moving bodies to beats is exceptional and can be enjoyed anywhere by all, while growing a strong mind-body-soul connection.
André is a life-long creative committed to educating and encouraging others to journey through their unique experiences and expressions. Students learn more than movements and musicality, but about cultural history, community and your inner world! André teaches dance, music and fitness classes to youth K-5 and adults around the Bay Area. His styles as a mover and musician are influenced by street dance and traditional cultures of the Bay Area,
New York, Brazil and many other techniques around the world.
What do children love to do most?
They move, make noise and messes! Humans are designed to move so we guide their abundant creative energy through movement storytelling, musical imagination and tangible art design for campers to develop self-confidence in expressing and communicating their thoughts and feelings.
We encourage students to explore limits and take chances by using the world around them to create stories, while developing kinesthetic and emotional awareness.
