Body, Heart, and Mind Academy
The Body+Heart+Mind Academy is anchored in the holistic enrichment of children through movement and performing arts curriculum. Children will:
Engage their bodies to grow coordination, strength, agility, flexibility and endurance through challenging obstacle courses, choreography, yoga, creative movement, and conditioning.
Engage their minds to solve challenging problems, analyze, and learn the pedagogy behind their enrichment subject.
Engage their hearts by expanding empathy, learning coping mechanisms by finding success on the other side of failure, and by having conversations that foster a greater multicultural understanding.
