Some of our Collaborators:  

Soccer

More than anything  else, learning to play soccer will be made fun.  Coach Magnus creates a supportive and positive environment that makes the challenges that come to learning to play soccer and achieving other set goals less demanding to attain. Certain drills deal with the mental aspect of the game by building a child’s ability to concentrate and focus; other drills deal with the physical aspect of the game by building their motor skills through exercises that enhances their balance and coordination. While these individual developments are important, it is all done in a setting that fosters and strongly emphasizes the concept of teamwork.

Dance

Tamia B. Santana is currently the partner and Executive Director of Jeté Dance Center, in Brooklyn, where the student focus is on dance training for competitive and professional placement. Tamia has trained and danced with Jacques D’Amboise’ National Dance Institute as a principal soloist. She has appeared at Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music and in Europe.

Creative Kids

The integration of art in a child’s development can advance creativity and imagination while refining important motor skills. Clay is an enthralling and tactile medium for children to explore and express their artistic creativity. Students will learn different skills in hand-building pottery. In each class, I introduce a new project or idea, presenting different clay mediums and techniques to make fun, unique projects such as sculptural self-portraits or animal coil pots. The children are invited to use these innovative project ideas as a starting point to create a piece of art that is all their own; clay is the perfect versatile medium for kids to really explore their creative ideas. I encourage the children to share their goals for the day’s ceramics project, opening up an important dialogue between the children, their art and myself.
