At Musicalité the Brain Gym® is essential to the musical experience!
We propose an enriched Brain Gym® activity animated through a story. Each group of movements is accompanied by a specific musical piece that helps guide the little ones. This method allows them to enjoy the experience of movement in a playful atmosphere.
Furthermore, the children work on other skills like listening, pulse, and awareness of rhythmic changes in addition to the benefits of the Brain Gym practice.
What is Brain Gym®?
The Brain Gym® exercises are a series of 26 movements. The activities evoke the movements naturally executed during the first years of life when learning to coordinate the eyes, ears, hands, and the whole body. These movements were developed by Paul E. Dennison et Gail E. Dennison.
These exercises are based on evidence of the correlation between movement, cognition, and applied learning.
PACE (Positive, Active, Clear & Energetic) exercises, a segment of the BrainGym® movements, are usually done to effectively prepare the children for new learning.

The PACE in video
Butterflies explore the world that surrounds them. A clown walks through the forest filled with joy and starts to dance! At last, it's time to rest: the butterfly closes its eyes and folds its wings.
The PACE in music
Children are getting dressed for a space voyage adventure. Once they're done, they start chasing stars of all colours. Finally, they hold the brightest start between their hands: the one full of light that will fill their hearts with grace.
