I teach yoga (mindfulness) and Dance to all ages, the two infused together make my workshops more of a conscious mind and body awareness process, learning about the right way to calm the mind and strength the body. Originally trained as a breakdancer I use popular songs and movements the children can relate too to make the learning fun and engaging. There are so many different ways movement can be used to help children learn across the curriculum, last spring term I worked in three different schools on the creative learning project using my knowledge as a movement artist to help the children with their literacy and writing skills. Some of the children were finding it hard to write but when they created movement first the story or poem was easier to remember and write down. There are many ways you could use movement to remember simple angles and rotations from a maths lesson or learn about the different parts of the body and the bone and muscle structure like in a biology lesson. One of the greatest things dance can do for a child is learn self confidence. Dance and yoga should be apart of the curriculum.
