Rhythm and Movement

A child moves because he must. Movement is essential to life and all living things move. Movement is a natural process. Intellectual development is rooted in exploration. As the child becomes increasingly mobile his environment enlarges and his range of experience is directly related to his mobility. A child learns from what he encounters and the wider his range of experience, the more he learns Movement procures experience, as well as provides a means of expressing experience and education in the art of movement and rhythm-is as essential as education in thought of feeling. Choreography, mime, role play dramatics, all provide him with the means of interpreting and mastering his environment and help him develop as a balanced individual. As our motive is that each child makes rhythm and movement a part of himself.
