Our specialists are an integral part of The Willows educational program. They are not “in addition to” but fully integrated into our curriculum with developmentally appropriate projects and activities, as well as weekly scheduled periods with our music, dance, P.E., library, and drama specialists.

Lessons are designed to develop creativity, ignite imagination, instill confidence, build cooperation, and have fun, especially during distance learning.
We help students discover how creative they can be with any material and to explore personal expression.

Our goal is to create a supportive environment so students feel safe to explore, create, and share.

Dance offers students the opportunity to express themselves creatively through movement and to build confidence by performing with and for others.
