Using mime, theatre, circus illusion, martial arts and sign language techniques, Linda will help your students explore concepts from various academic fields, including art, literature, history, communication and science. Themes can be tailored to each grade level or curriculum, and can include such things as literacy and communication, great works of art, or the inventions of Leonardo da Vinci. By looking at these concepts through the lens of movement—integrating mind and body—the physical aspects of the workshop will also increase students’ coordination as we explore isolation movements, balance, power, and symmetry.
