You hear a lot these days about social-emotional development in children, especially how important it is for building empathy and meaningful relationships. Social-emotional skills equip our kids with the tools they need to manage their emotions, make friends, and connect to other people on a deeper level. It’s a crucial foundation to their whole health—and a challenge in today’s world of virtual classrooms and masks!
But it’s a challenge that can still be met, particularly here at Pegasus. A dancer’s learning environment plays a key role in this growth; it gives them an opportunity to build confidence in these skills while simultaneously building their physical skills. Their hearts, minds, and bodies are literally working together.
Here are just a few highlights of how we’re helping your children with their social-emotional building blocks:
January Monthly Minute
Happy New Year and Welcome to 2021!
We would like to welcome you all back to dance this week and to 2021 at Pegasus Dance Studios!
We had hoped we would be back to in-studio classes this week as we have all been doing our best to follow all guidelines for health and safety. We are close and we are staying the course to get us there as soon as possible. Thank you for sticking with us. We are grateful for all the love, appreciation and feedback we have received.
We continue to be grateful for your belief in us to provide consistent learning for your children. What we have learned from March 2020 with the limits given to us is that we need to dig deeper to be creative and to find ways to continue to offer the programs and learning opportunities for your children in ways that we didn't know were possible but are continuing to learn, pivot and adapt. Just like you, we ARE doing this and we are excited about all the possibilities to stretch us as educators.
Our faculty is excited to see you all back in class this week!
