Movement Literacy is a teaching method that enhances learning abilities by providing tools that empower students to develop critical thinking skills.
Language of Movement was born out of Dana Luebke’s years of experience as a dancer, an artist-residence in schools and communities, and a Brain Gym® practitioner.
As he developed workshops in dance, movement with poetry and Brain Gym®, Dana began to look for connections, for a common foundation to the work. He found this to be the fundamental movement patterns we all practice from birth to integrate our primitive and postural reflexes and to develop the foundation for autonomous movement and action in our lives.
For more than 30 years, Dana has been doing this work with students from preschool to university. Now it is time to share it with teachers, so they may continue the work. He is also working with seniors, helping them to regain the joy of movement, while improving balance, coordination and mobility.
As the founder of Brain Gym®, Dr. Paul Dennison says, “Movement is the door to learning.”
