DanKo believes that movement is an integral part of life. We believe that movement is essential to basic functions of the body, mind, and spirit. Movement is the key facilitator in the development and enhancement of knowledge. Our literacy programs are designed to develop and enhance the academic skills for students ages 2-adult.

TWEEN & TEEN LITERACY (AGES 10 - 17)
The Tween & Teen Literacy Program has a similar layout to that of our Jr. Literacy Program. However, students will be encouraged in this program not only to develop their reading comprehension skills through movement and stories. They will be exposed to more complex readings and will be able to facilitate understanding in small learning groups. They will also become the storyteller and will be able to write and create their own stories with the use of movement.
