In your experience, how do you see music and body movement helping children with their learning process and even emotional challenges?
Music and movement are natural expressions and can be soothing and healing. I have seen agitated students with autism become calm with the sound of calming music, and seen students find their “voice” through dance. Our society values the written word as a primary form of expression, but not everybody is wired in the same way. We need to value all types of learners as this can help with confidence and help kids feel seen.
Are there any upcoming events and activities that you would like to highlight?
We will have an online performance for the Brooklyn Public Library on September 10th. Also, our Artistic Director, Alberto Lopez, will be teaching an online residency through Flushing Town Hall for the next 2 weeks!
