Where Stories Come to Life...
About our Classes
Carefully designed using age-appropriate props and materials, each of our classes are based upon a range of childrens' stories which we use as an opportunity for our students to discover English organically and spontaneously. But the fun really begins as we take the page out of the book by interpreting the events of the stories and transform them into yoga sequences, dance routines and pieces of art.
In our classes, students gain a deeper understanding of the stories, learn to express themselves through movement and art and enhance their English skills in a fun space without inhibitions.
The benefits of yoga for children are becoming increasingly clear all the time. Aside from the physical benefits such as gaining strength, flexibility and coordination, it also helps boost children’s confidence and self-esteem, improves focus and concentration levels and enables them to manage their emotions and anxieties allowing for happier, more relaxed little beings.
At Aria, we tap into the curious young minds of our students as we guide them on a path of exploration and discovery where they learn to master yoga poses and improve their English skills through the use of narratives, games and art.
Children love exploring their physicality, and at Aria we inspire girls and boys to use music and movement to express themselves and to develop an appreciation for the beautiful art form of dance, all the while helping them to improve their strength, flexibility, balance and coordination.
In these classes, we use props, mime and imagery to interpret the events of childrens' stories and convert them into dance exercises, routines and creative movement activities.
Arts & Crafts in English
It might not seem obvious, but performing arts and crafts also help develop children’s physical skills, such as improving hand-eye coordination, dexterity and fine-motor skills. Alongside this, it promotes creativity, innovation, encourages self-expression and helps children with decision making.
The picture books that we use at Aria serve as an engaging tool for children to think about and discuss the words, stories and pictures within them. As we transform stories into arts and crafts, students connect further with them and gain a deeper understanding of the language in which they are written.
