~ Intensive Retreat on Star Dance Farm ~

Sunday June 26th – Friday July 1st, 2022

Just outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan

As our society becomes increasingly inadequate in providing rich developmental opportunities for the young child, our presence and offerings for the children become even more crucial in their development. This intensive is designed for early childhood educators seeking to deepen their understanding and practice of developmental movement, speech and singing in the mood of the fifth to support the young child.  We will immerse ourselves in the essence of this work:  bringing reverence and empathy to our work, rhythm, rhyme, singing in the mood of the fifth, gesture, movement and loving touch plays, all designed specifically to meet the needs of the young child.

Join us for delightful and insightful experiences:

~ Working out of reverence and empathy                                                                                     ~ Inner Work ~ Early childhood nutrition
~ Touch, dancing hands, large movement plays
~ Therapeutic aspects of the gesture work
~ Singing in the mood of the fifth
~ Spacial Dynamics®
