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.

Happy Yoga 

School days can be long for young children and the transition from the structure of the classroom to after school or home can be challenging. Help your child transition from the classroom to after school and home with Happy Yoga class. In this fun and playful class children will learn how to focus through breathing and relaxation techniques, develop strong healthy bodies with developmentally appropriate poses, build social skills with partner and group poses. Engaging stories, imagination exercises and meditation help children learn to recognize and channel their energy.
