Full Description


With Sara Kiesel

Sara is a gifted ​therapeutic ​teacher with an empathetic and perceptive ability to meet the child where he/she is. She brings her knowledge of the special child’s developmental, social and emotional needs​ ​to​ guide​ ​​the child to expand their attention and focus as they ​explore movement ideas in space. 

​With deep respect for the journey of the child whose perceptions and abilities are undeveloped and getting in their way​, Sara offers individual and small group classes​ ​that develop skills in communication, behavioral skills management, and social/emotional interactions. ​This work supports the development of muscle strength, trunk stability, balance, breath and impulse control.

​Classes will explore body parts, spatial relationships, and basic dance elements relating to time​, rhythm, flow and breath​. We will develop skills in listening and concentration while exploring imagery and ​simple dancemaking. 

Sara is a seasoned educator specializing in dance and movement for the Special Needs student. She has worked as a teacher and Arts administrator, workshop leader and teacher trainer. Her background in dance, movement therapy, creative arts​, yoga and mindfulness​ has given her a breath of experience while working with hundreds of children, families and teaching professionals.
