RVA is for lovers. Lovers of good food. Lovers of being outdoors. Lovers of art. Lovers of music. We should also be lovers of inspiring our children to be confident, self-aware, and creative. I often see RVA's children excelling in sports and academics...but what about excelling in self-esteem?! That is how I came up with the idea of the workshops geared towards children in the upper elementary school and those in middle school. As a mother, educator, music therapist, and licensed counselor, I eel responsible to share these ideas with our youth through music, movement, and mindfulness and most importantly relevancy. I am very happy to partner with Heather Umberger who's expertise would fill up the page! She will bringing movement to our workshops and reminding us to be conscious of our body positioning. I know that Saturdays are hard. I know that there are one million things you would rather be doing. However, we hope that you will choose to include your child in one and a half hours of confidence building fun that will lessen anxiety! We will be so busy having fun that it will go by in a blink of an eye! Promise! If you have questions, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
