Sharing WLR

Although our classes are intentionally small to ensure the highest quality, we do need minimum enrollments (typically about 5 students) in each class.

Please feel free to share the WLR 2016 Fall flyer with your homeschooling friends—or those who are considering home education! You may print and post the flyer or forward it online.

For your friends who enjoy social media, photos of our classes in action can be found on the WLR Facebook page.

Thank you for spreading the word about our unique classes and programs! Your assistance is appreciated not only by WLR staff and teachers, but also by our currently registered families.

Folk Dancing for Fun, Exercise & Culture!

In WLR’s Folk Dancing class, students enjoy social interaction while developing physical abilities and coordination in fun and developmentally appropriate ways. It also provides an excellent outlet for active children and kinesthetic learners by providing appropriate physical activities for naturally active students. And folk dancing is a great way to add variety to your children’s physical education program.

In addition, folk dancing teaches basic concepts of rhythm, repetition, sequencing, patterning, predictability, anticipation, musical cues, auditory discrimination, and counting.  And by exposing children to dances from around the world and to dances representing different historical and social times, children learn how all cultures, nations, and people are connected and interrelated.

Community Folk Dancing at Wholistic Learning Resources

If you are looking for an activity to help your children develop a positive attitude toward a fun, loving way to provide life-long physical activity and exercise, register them for Ms. Burgess’ Folk Dancing Class on Mondays, beginning September 14th. See the Monday class Schedule & Fees here.

Parents are welcome to join in the fun as well!

“My goal in teaching a new dance is to make the experience of learning the dance as easy and fun as possible for the students. My hope is that the dance descriptions, the recorded music and the musical scores provide helpful tools that inspire and enable you to bring folk dance into your classrooms, into your homes, into your community life.”          — Donna Burgess, Instructor
