About

Movement & Dance Classes

Brookline Music School's Movement & Dance Program explores kinesthetic creativity by using movement, music, props, games and play to develop and link students’ learning into complex dance moves and phrases.

Movement & Dance Instructor Tom Krusinski starts with each child’s strengths within individual and ensemble work, engaging them using the practices of Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, including spatial, linguistic, mathematical and logical. Such intelligences assist in emotional and behavioral control, resisting impulses, developing cognitive flexibility and memory, and bringing courage and joy to meeting challenging situations in and out of the dance class.

“Tom is wonderful…he has transformed our daughter in dance class from a little girl who wouldn’t follow along or answer questions (Shy at times) to a bundle of energy and enthusiasm in dance!”~ BMS Parent
