Hypothesis!

This week my second graders are learning about the scientific method. We’re excited to add Science in Motion by Lisa Amstutz (an Ohio author) to our lesson. We’ve agreed on identifying dancers working with body parts in high, medium, and low space. We’ve added circular and angular movements. The class can observe and talk about their observations.

Vision for Sanctuary

I envision a time when providers of healthcare, clinical therapists, and patients will include movement plans, art therapies, and expressive therapies in their plan of actions. As this is still such a challenge in terms of being billable, I believe that individual and group expressive arts facilitated programs will partner with clinicians and host opportunities for hurting people to find the steps to their dances.
