Students will walk, march jog, run, leap, kick, stretch, balance, jump; work their core and distill, their oppositional, cross their midlines and develop patterning abilities. Material available for Kindergarten through grade 9. Video demonstrations available for purchase alone or discounted as part of a residence or professional development workshop.

Basic Gymnastic Progressions
Learn the progressive steps to a Forward, Side and Backward Roll. How about the How-to for a

to understand the mechanics. Variations for those with mobility restrictions included. You can
make a full day of it and & learn some Balances and Jumps too!

Surprise your students by learning and performing a staff Dance! Simple choreography will fit nearly everyone's comfort zone and send school spirit through the roof! Choose from titles like: Thriller, Crazy Frog, Brave, Leader in Me or song of your choice!
Make the Mind-Body Connection
Give your staff a Balancing Body-work class designed to get everyone more comfortable with their own experience of being in their body. Part Yoga, part anatomy, fully safe for most bodies; this technique
is used to stretch and strengthen gently, internally massage organs, and inform the practitioner of how the muscles work to support movement.
