This intergenerational class is for students of all ages as an introduction to Creative Dance.
The class will use the BrainDance methodology as developed by Anne Green Gilbert
“The BrainDance is an excellent full body-brain exercise based on developmental movement patterns that healthy human beings naturally move through in the first year of life. These movements (Breath, Tactile, Core-Distal, Head-Tail, Upper-Lower, Body-Side, Cross-Lateral, Vestibular, Eye-Tracking) integrate the primary reflexes that are the foundation for healthy brain development. The movements develop our whole brain (brain stem, mid-brain/limbic system, and cortex). As babies, we did these brain-developing movements on the floor. As children and adults, we continue to review these patterns in a variety of ways to keep our brains and bodies strong. Cycling through these patterns daily or weekly may also fill in missing gaps in our sensory-motor system due to birth trauma, lack of floor time as an infant, or illness or head injury as a child or adult.” Anne Green Gilbert
Students of all ages will explore a variety of movement concepts, such as body parts, speed, levels, directions, rhythm, relationships, etc..
Children ages 3 and under must be accompanied by an Adult. Adults who are accompanying young children do not need to register for the class. The first family member is full price and all other family members may join at half price.
