Education

Perceptual Motion is sensitive to the many demands on teachers. We strive to make every minute count to create the “AHA!” moments of discovery so crucial to retention of ideas and concepts.

We balance the teaching of specific skills with development of the ability to creatively solve problems in an effort to help teachers and students reach their full potential.

Perceptual Motion offers custom designed teacher in services, special projects, lecture demonstrations and dance residencies. Please call Lin Shook at 1-773-549-3958 for more information.
