Creating a Bridge for New Learning!

Workshops & Classes

Dynamic Performance's educational workshops provide teachers and students the building blocks for academic success. Learn about the physical components that are related to learning disabilities. Our programs show you how to increase the motivation for learning and why
physical movement is essential for the learning environment. We also provide stress management techniques for teachers, as well as, learning profiles and how they affect the ability to attend, focus and organize information.

The central theme in all workshops is based in understanding and experiencing the importance of DEVELOPMENTAL MOVEMENT progressions and how babies learn to express themselves through movement. With the developmental building blocks of rolling, crawling, creeping, standing, walking as guidelines, and an understanding of the influence of the environment on learning, each child is seen as an individual who learns in a unique manner. Learning through Movement helps educators and caretakers to identify the specific movement strengths and challenges of each child by relating these non-verbal behaviors to their socio-emotional and physical developmental needs.
Below is a list of our most popular workshops but if you don't see something for you, we can custom-tailor a workshop to specifically suit your needs. Contact Us to book your Dynamic Performance™ Workshop today!

The Art of Learning
This workshop encompasses the learning process, movement and how to see where a child may need help. The playful format helps draw out a child's natural abilities when he/she may be challenged at any given movement. This workshop helps integrate the basic foundations of learning so the child, when challenged in the future, will feel more at ease and ready to blossom. Bring lots of crayons and markers!
