Digging Deeper on Children's Physical Development: The Power, Potential, and Profound Impact it has on Babies through Kindergarten

What Will You Learn?

  • What the connection is between the body and the brain and its impact on learning
  • How you can address specific issues from infancy through kindergarten with fun dance activities anybody can do
  • What a world movement and dance make in getting a child school ready

"This is an awesome workshop where you get ideas to increase your student/child knowledge and have more good ideas to control their energy and at the same time keep them learning things. Body parts, counting, and communication, working in teams, taking turns, etc. It's a must if you are interested in closing the achievement gap."


Why Will It Matter?

  • You will spend less time addressing behaviors
  • You will spend more time teaching 
  • Everyone will have more fun and less stress
  • * Children will be ready for school            

Give yourself the gift of Digging Deeper and really understand whole brain/body learning and why it is so effective!
