I believe that people--children and adults!--learn best by doing. The arts provide a hands-on approach to education, full of action, movement, and the freedom to ask questions. In the classroom or in the theatre, we use the whole body to engage the mind, leading to deep understanding of concepts. Regardless of whether I am dramaturging a professional production, teaching a preschool class, creating a devised play with a group of middle schoolers, or writing monologues with high schoolers, the journey is more important than the destination.
The school year is about to begin at The Atelier! Classes start on August 6, and we can't wait to show our new spaces to our students and their families!
We're bringing more arts education to mid-Missouri! Read about TRYPS in Fulton on the Brick District Playhouse's website, and join us for my original production of Treasure Island. Classes culminate in a performance this fall.
I officially have certification to teach yoga to children, and I'm thrilled to be able to add this graphic to my profile!
Currently, I'm using my certification to teach Storytime Yoga Together (for 1- to 3-year-olds and their grownups) and Artful Yoga (for 5- to 7-year-olds) at The Atelier, where I also teach preschool and primary school, and infuse yoga into the arts-based curriculum! Visit The Atelier's site to learn more about the classes, and to register!
