For the overall development of a child, balanced growth of both the left and the right centres of the brain and the ability to communicate with one’s body is essential. It is by discovering the creative language of dance that the child gains an inherent understanding of the soul.
GAIT,a FitKid’s initiative, looks to address this creative gap in the present education system, by introducing the dimension of dance. GAIT brings Dance in Education to children from grades K-12 through a revolutionary program.
Incorporating key elements of formal dance training, GAIT creates a flexible curriculum that can be used in schools. The GAIT Dance Education program is tailored to suit the needs of every child. The program begins by creating awareness of one’s own body, its movements and its unique rhythm. Over time, children become perceptive about themselves and their surroundings. They are then taught basic choreography to match music, which gives them the confidence to work on their own.
