Compositive Primary, in partnership with Integral Steps, offers an extended-year calendar with programming during short breaks between our inquiries and our shortened summer break. These programs are designed to deepen our students’ inquiries through investigation and play. Students may register for one week or multiple weeks, with optional extended care hours. Here are a few examples of their Deep Dives:
PLAY: Piano, Language, Art, & Yoga!
Learn foundational music and movement skills through rhythm, improvisation, and tonal recognition in a fun, Suzuki- and Dalcroze-inspired group piano class! Piano Moves gives your average group piano lessons an integrative movement twist! Using familiar songs, fun dances and partner work, this small class provides the foundation for excellent music education. Students learn rhythmic and tonal patterns, how to read music, and improvisation and composition skills. Culminating in short performances at the end of week performance, PLAY teaches students to love performing, become lifelong musicians and movers!
Heroes, Heroines, Ent, & Elves: Fables and Fairy Tales from Middle Earth and Beyond!
Students will create their own fairy tales based on the characters and themes in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings as well as popular Grimm Brothers tales and Aesop’s Fables. Explore fantasy worlds, design your own sets, develop awareness through theater and film, and express yourself through music and movement. The week will culminate in a magical interactive performance for friends and family.
Is your child inquisitive about the world around them? Inspire them with a rich integration of biology, art, music, and movement. Themes are introduced kinesthetically through music and movement, deepened through science, & expressed through the arts. At the end of the week, celebrate with a musical finale and science & arts fair for parents, friends & families! Inspire your children with a rich integration of biology, art, music, and movement using Dalcroze Education. Each day, a theme is introduced through music and movement, explored through science, and expressed through the arts.
