Our goal is to encourage children to move, discover and express themselves in a non-threatening environment. We do this by combining our uniquely designed curriculum, using many styles of music and movement activities, as well as a wide variety of large muscle activities, thus providing a well-rounded program. Movement in non-competitive surroundings promotes trying new activities and nurtures a child's self-esteem.
Although Motion & Me is not performance oriented, we do provide two opportunities each year for the children to move on stage. We participate at the San Diego County Fair each summer and we have a winter recital each December. Our performances are designed to be low key. The value of our program is in the weekly class time activities, but the performances are a chance to get to meet our families and have some fun. It is often the children’s spontaneity that provides our most cherished memories.
Each weekly 45-minute class is offered right at your child's school. Classes are designed around a concept or theme, which is explained in our monthly newsletter. Every third week the class is centered around a large muscle activity. These would include: Parachutes, Balance Beams, Body Sox, Hula Hoops, Huge Balls, Obstacle Courses, Sports Games, and much, much more!
The combination of music and movement as well as large muscle activities provides a complete program for your child.
