A Letter From Leaping Legs

Welcome to my blog! I call this blog “Letters From Leaping Legs” because my company Leaping Legs has its own website but I do not get a chance to write directly to parents and teachers about the infinite possibilities movement can play in the lives of children, adults, families, schools and communities and so this blog was born.

To give you a little background information about myself, I started this journey as a dancer and choreographer. I had a career ending injury, so I thought, and did not know what to do with the rest of my life. As I delved more into what dance really meant to me, I continued my education and received a Master of Arts from Teachers College, Columbia University in dance education. And as my body healed I realized that dance was so much more than just performing. That movement was so much more then grooving with the music, even though this is loads of fun. Movement is a vehicle to experience the world.

I hope this blog will help inspire, encourage and give you ideas on how to create enriching kinesthetic learning experiences for the children in your lives as well as yourself.

Thanks for opening my letter and I hope you enjoy the letters to come. Keep moving up down and all around together!
