"Lisa has an amazing way with children and a wealth of knowledge in the fields of yoga and dance. Her calm, creative energy is inspiring and her program was such a wonderful experience for our children! Anyone would be lucky to work with her!"
- Jennifer Misquitta, VSB
"I have been working with Lisa for the past year in my Kindergarten class. She came in once a week to teach my students all about yoga and dance. Lisa's passion, inspiration and dedication to teaching yoga/dance to children makes our world a better place to be. Her classes are rich and engaging and she incorporates the mind, body and soul in fun and imaginative ways. Students learn how to move their bodies, how to work with their breath and how to relax (such important self-regulatory tools). I know my students always looked forward to their time with Lisa!"
- Laura Clancy, VSB
"My grade 1 class had an awesome time with Lisa! She was flexible and cooperative and was able to cater to the needs and abilities of my class. She taught dance with elements of yoga and helped the children explore movement with their bodies. I felt it was special that she started each visit by having the children send love and admiration out to someone, whether it be to a peer or to a family member and she closed each visit with a beautiful relaxation exercise. I look forward to having Lisa back in my class again next year!"
- Cynthia Shan, VSB
IN THE CLASSROOM SETTING
A wide variety of contexts are available for working with students in the classroom setting including: yoga, storytelling, creative dance, and the inflatables from the Nylon Zoo (see Storytelling). They range in duration from an afternoon workshop to 4 months projects.
For the Glow of it! is a project brought into Elementary Schools through an Artstarts Grant, or otherwise. Students work closely with artist Lisa Sars to create a mind bending full evening performance, using the illusionary power of UV lights and contemporary dance.
