THE POWER OF YES. Every kid has a gift to share. Over the course of our weeks together they become captivated by the creative process and discover the pleasure of movement, dance, theater, themselves, and…each other!
EVERY STORY SHINES!
What Does Reaching
Our Youth Mean?
It means creating an opportunity for kids and teens to move and play in their bodies - 20 minutes of moving creates 24 hours of elevated “feel good” neurotransmitters - a direct way to address anger and bullying in the schools.
Bringing the Joy of Self Expression
SETTING UP SUCCESS
Throughout the year, Turning the Wheel offers free, introductory classes in local schools and after-school programs. These demos give you a chance to see what we can do and then you can sign up for a program in your school.
It means setting our kids and teens up for success by giving them a chance to be seen, and to lead and take risks in a safe and supportive environment.
Activating Their Gifts in Community
Inspiring Creative Expression
Increasing the Visibility of Our Youth
REWIRING FOR A BETTER LIFE
It means creating an environment where the brains of our young people can literally rewire for a better life. Research has established that spontaneous activity develops the brain's ability to respond in non-patterned ways, a must for youth who need a fresh start.
And it means new beginnings, new reference experiences, and new lives for thousands of kids and teens as they discover a new idea of how to live in positive relationship to themselves, their families and their communities.
