Spring is here and with it our new Spring-themed Brain Moves 🌸
Brain Play™ and narrative BrainDance™ is a quick and easy way to effectively warm up the body, whether you’re in the dance studio or classroom.
Our new spring-themed resources include activities that focus on breath, tactile input, core-distal, head-tail, upper-lower, body sides, cross-lateral and vestibular input.
Paint the Rainbow
The ‘Paint the Rainbow’ song is a fun, creative way to incorporate tactile input (touch) into your Brain Play™ warm-up. This activity utilizes brushing, patting and poking movements that warm up the skin, help create body awareness and provide sensory input. Encourage your students to “dip” their hands into paint and brush the colors of the rainbow onto their arms, belly and legs for an imaginative, playful Brain Play™ activity!
Why BrainDance™ and Brain Play™?
Brain Play™ and the BrainDance™ patterns mirror the development of the brain and motor skills that babies and toddlers progress through on their way to becoming mature movers. By practicing these fundamental movements, we strengthen the body’s internal support for both every day and more complex movements.
Moving through the BrainDance™ patterns help fill in developmental gaps, provides sensory integration, rewires the nervous system and reorganizes connections to the brain.
