November 11th (Week 2) Generating an awareness of body and feelings
This week, your daughter will expand her toolbox of resources by which to express emotions. Using art and movement, the group with explore and experiment emotions to better understand their uses, trappings and the power of communication.
November 18th (Week 3) Expressing emotions
Young or old, we all have an inner critic that is judging us: our body, choices, grades... This week, your daughter will explore the difference between her inner critic and her authentic voice - finding greater clarity and confidence in who she is through sound, group work and art.
November 25th: Thanksgiving, no group.
December 2nd (Week 4) Feeling powerful
This is the opportunity for your daughter to really get to start using her new tools, and tap into internal resources. She will be challenged to access the self-empowerment she has been building throughout the 4 previous weeks.
December 9th (Week 5) Integration and goodbyes
She'll get one last reminder of capable, confident and powerful she is and your daughter will be ready to say goodbye to the friends she's made and apply what she has learned.
