About Physical Expedition

Our physical expedition program emphasizes movement, dance, and collaborative games. Through movement, children learn to use their bodies to express the content and concepts of their expeditions. Children are taught to choreograph their own movement pieces, in addition to learning the basics of yoga, capoeira, ballet, tap, and modern dance. They also learn healthy habits of fitness by building balance, strength, endurance, and flexibility. Some attention is given to traditional sports, particularly at the upper grades. Sports and games are woven into the curriculum as students explore historic and global recreation traditions.
