Our kids program is noncompetitive and skill oriented. In each class we focus on having tons of fun while keeping the students constantly moving and learning. This is achieved through the use of varied content and consistent reinforcement of foundational skills to create an environment that cultivates and preserves the inherent physical intelligence of each student. We cultivate physical abilities such as climbing, dancing, catching, throwing, brachiating, inverting, locomotion on two and four limbs, spinning, rolling, stillness and more. We also cultivate social and emotional qualities such as working with partners and in groups, being a supportive friend, learning what it feels like to learn new skills and also learning how to keep working through difficulties.
This program uses the same world class methodology and underlying concepts as our adult classes (the Ido Portal Method), in a way that is adapted to be developmentally appropriate for ages 4-11. #bouldermovementcollective #boulderkids #idoportalmethod #movementculture
