Yoga: Yoga enhances Physical Flexibility and promotes physical strength because students learn to use all of their muscles in new dynamic ways. It develops Focus and Concentration. The act of practicing poses encourages children to clear their mind and focus on the effort. Moreover it will teach our students mindfulness. Mindful Movement: A study of dance and movement fundamentals with an emphasis on artistic self-expression, and instilling confidence to use movement as a healthy communication tool. Studio Art: A further exploration into the visual arts. Students will work on longer term projects to further enhance and develop their technical skills at drawing, painting, and sculpting. Dance: The Rock School of dance teaching artists come to Nebinger through the Rock Reach Dance program to instruct students on traditional and current dance moves. Students work the entire year toward the end goal of a performance on May 23. STEM: Science. Technology. Engineering. Math. STEM is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. All the key skills needed to compete in a global economy and technological society fall under: problem solving, analytical thinking, and the ability to work independently. Those skills are all taught in our STEM programming. MODERN BAND / LITTLE KIDS ROCK: In this class students in grades 3-8 will learn to play the guitars, keyboards, and percussion while playing in a rock band. We will cover chord progressions as we play rock and blues. Guitar students in this class are eligible to take home a guitar for practice! BUCKET DRUMMING This is a fun class for students to become involved in drumming and percussion. We use a popular online program: Bucketdrumming.net.
