Fee:     $140 (4 Wks)
Location: Brick Building, 97 School Street
Instructor: Right Brain Curriculum

Famously, Americans’ number one fear is public speaking while death only ranks number two. If that’s so, this profound fear probably starts at an early age. In our Public Speaking class, we take the fear out of speaking before an audience by getting kids talking in front of a supportive group about things in which they are interested. They write speeches on subjects of their choice and practice delivering them to the assembled students. As the kids practice in this low-pressure environment, they learn skills like standing up tall, using a loud voice and making eye contact. We also watch speeches of public figures and critique what is successful and unsuccessful in their speeches and hold fun and engaging debates in which students are asked to take a position on given issues such as “Should school have homework?” and “What time should kids go to bed?” If the class is successful, our students won’t list public speaking as their #1 fear when they grow up. See a full curriculum preview: http://rightbraincurriculum.com/publicspeaking.    Instructor will meet the children after school and walk safely to the Brick Building on school campus.

Taoist Tai Chi

Instructor: Ted and Pam Brewster

Taoist Tai Chi® arts grew out of this tradition and are a way to develop a body that is strong, yet supple, balanced and energetic, a mind that is calm and clear, yet creative and dynamic, and a spirit that is light and peaceful, yet resilient.  Taoist Tai Chi® arts involve deep stretching with a full range of motion and continuous turning of the spine. They exercise the whole physiology including muscular, skeletal, and circulatory systems, as well as tendons, joints, connective tissue and organs. Rather than depending on tension and the development of hard muscle tissue, these arts develop a body that is relaxed and strong at the deepest levels. The gentle internal movements are balanced throughout the body and have a calming effect on the mind. Taoist Tai Chi® arts are truly a moving meditation.
