Preschool

Dance is a form of artistic communication and the expression of emotions, feelings, thoughts, images and moods in humans. It is also a means for students to entertain and enjoy rhythmic movements. For these reasons it is an activity that helps with children's formation by satisfying their need to express themselves and create via the knowledge of their bodies and help them discover the many ways they can move their bodies according to their evolutionary status and level of achievement, channeling their creative and energetic potential.

In addition, the dance class helps students develop other basic skills they will use throughout their lives such as coordination, spatial consciousness, memory, concentration, expression, and listening skills.

 

 

PLASTICINE_HEADER

Preschool

Children who learn the art of sculpture in plasticine are less inhibited in talking about their feelings, worries and problems. The workshop fulfills the needs of each child to mix, combine, integrate and sculpt plasticine with other materials so they can select their best option. In the plasticine sculpture class, we seek to give children a space that promotes expression and creativity and where they can develop their motor skills gradually and according to their skills.

In each class children realize a thematic project via creating characters, animals, caricatures, etc. With these they build a model related to themes they themselves choose. The workshop helps students with their coordination, fine motor skills and tactile sensibility.

The workshop also is an important exercise to increase their levels of concentrations. By working in plasticine, children strengthen their muscles and learn tolerance and patience.
