Dance In The Schools
I just finished up teaching three different classes for Dance In The Schools in Cambridge MA (coordinated by Erica Sigal). I wish every month was dance month. I love getting into the schools and teaching dance and yoga to kids during the day! It is such a great way to work with this population and help cultivate new interests for them. This year I had the opportunity to have three sessions with two classes at the Maria Baldwin School (1st and 2nd grade) and a one day special of teaching math through dance at the Cambridgeport School (7th grade)-teaching how to graph linear equations, to be exact. The math class really peaked my interest and I will be creating a more in depth math-dance program so I can work with all k-12 grades.
I just received a great compliment form the 1st grade teacher at the Baldwin School. The kids and teachers at the Baldwin School were very inviting and created a great space for me to come in and be with them. The whole school has a nice vibe and the kids were very involved with their classrooms.
A shout out to Shakta Kaur Khalsa for filling me up with great ways to involve children in yoga! I highly recommend studying with her. She is a generous spirit, so willing to share and so willing to learn. Namste Shakta!
