For Educators

We value the important role Montessori educators play in inspiring and planting the seeds of interest for children. Our workshop for educators and consultations are designed to empower and equip the generalist educator with the tools and inspiration needed to bring dance into the life of the classroom.

For Children

We offer a variety of workshops to inspire and start your children on the journey to developing dexterity with the language of dance.

Why Dance?

Dance is a mode of self expression available to all. To dance is to be human. 

‘ is only by movement that the personality can express itself’
Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, p.137 

‘Not only are thought and action two parts of the same occurrence, but it is through movement that the higher life can express itself.’
