The Q Studio Lab
KidsPlay Lab is an expressive movement program at the Q Studio Lab www.theqstudiolab.com located in Queens, NY. These classes and private lessons are focused on play and self-expression for elementary to middle school age children.
In these sessions, we are devoted to researching play to build lessons where children can fully let out their playful movement body and cultivate self expression in a confident way.
As we learn emotional and social confidence through allowing our bodies to do the talking, walking, giggling, drawing, and writing, we also learn how to empathetically listen to each other and ourselves. We grow our emotional intelligence along with our problem solving and cognitive skills!
Learning how to make dances teaches children how to build strong relationships, cultivate innovation, teamwork, focus, imagination, leadership, self-awareness, observation skills, boundary setting skills and make context driven art. We do this using movement games and creating movement phrases that link context (i.e.character development and storytelling) to movement structure.
First and foremost we are focused on having fun. We can then address social/emotional issues in a compassionate way when peers do not get along or feel like they are not able to get the job done.
We ask questions like:
"How do we become a team player AND a leader?"
"How do we get clear on our needs AND have the confidence to voice these needs?"
"How do we maintain focus on play AND get the task completed while staying in our creative movement genius?"
In KidsPlay Lab, we get to show up fully, completely, and uniquely as us! Please contact us for further information.
