ChezaCheza means playful in Swahili. We are dance educators and experts in Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) through movement! We increase access to social-emotional learning to children in informal settlements through the power of dance. Our dance curriculum incorporates mindfulness, breathwork, and dance exercises based on dance movement therapy techniques to provide an innovative framework to learn. The curriculum is carefully designed to fit the characteristics and needs of middle childhood (aged 6-9) and early adolescence (aged 10-18).
