Rhythm Works Integrative Dance is an eye-opening certification workshop that helps teachers be the best they can be so their students can be the best they can be!  While our focus is on teaching students who have learning differences and other special needs, I know you'll walk away with tools that will help you with ALL students!  Educational topics include:

  • Sensory processing and how it effects behavior and the learning process

  • Behavioral strategies used by ABA Therapists 

  • Kinesiology and movement safety

  • Special population considerations

  • Learner types & teaching styles

  • Teaching and using rhythm to activate the brain

  • Creating developmentally appropriate choreography using simple and functional hip hop dance steps can be used to purposefully customize a program that aids students in reaching their developmental goals. 

  • Using dance games as a learning tool

  • And so much more!

RWID is based on the Hip Hop Made Easy Program and Hip Hop In a Box, currently offered in over 2500 studios and schools around the world, but goes well beyond the scope of hip hop. NO PRIOR HIP HOP DANCE EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
