Kate Kuper strives to bring out the best in every learner by modeling a high level of commitment and enthusiasm at all times.


Whether the student is a child or a teacher, learners are drawn in by Kate’s energy and excitement as they learn to express ideas and feelings through movement. Kate also teaches brain-compatible, brain-based warm ups and movement explorations that improve student concentration, social skills, math and reading aptitude.

Teacher Workshops
Kate believes that “content in structure taught with clarity and confidence equals a good movement class.” All workshops are designed to empower teachers to become confident and clear about what they are doing and why it is important. Kuper provides practical teaching strategies and skills for classroom management (behavior, space use and pacing) as she models activities, concepts and lesson ideas.
