Imagine IF: Mindfulness, Theatre & Play is a class that celebrates imagination, builds confidence, and teaches self-regulation skills. It is a safe place for kids to experiment coming out of their shells, find connection with their peers, while letting their imaginations soar. Our play-based classes combine theatre, imaginative play and mindfulness to help your child find the calm inside themselves and the confidence outside to communicate and connect with others.

Each week, kids are taken through mindfulness and creative movement exercises, along with fun drama and play-based activities. Kids explore issues related to conflict, stress, anxiety, confidence and self-esteem through drama and mindfulness activities. These classes offer a fun and creative way for kids to explore issues they are experiencing, and to identify positive ways to reduce worry and develop deeper self-awareness. Participants are introduced to a variety of mindfulness meditation techniques to help them practice being in the moment and de-escalating moments where they experience big emotions.
