New Directions students participate in Yoga and Zumba on a weekly basis to build healthy minds and bodies.  These opportunities allow students to develop good habits, manage stress, and engage in physical activities that can be continued throughout their lives.  At New Directions, a World Class education includes helping students establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to be effective community members!

Flamenco!

Spanish students participated in the annual field trip to La Tasca in Arlington, Virginia to practice their Spanish language skills, learn about the Flamenco Dance and the role a guitarist plays in the performance.  Students were able to participate directly in the dance which included a review of instruments and costumes.  As you can see, audience participation was encouraged!  Ole’!

New Directions in Equine Therapy!

Students visited the Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center in Haymarket, Virginia and learned how equine therapy can assist people to interact with others and lead better lives.   Rainbow, a non-profit center, provides equine therapies to ages four to adult with physical, intellectual, emotional and educational needs.  The group participated in a variety of activities which included equine care, training, and therapy.  Students were able to see firsthand that animal husbandry  is not only about rearing farm animals but how animals and people can positively impact one-another.

Colonial Williamsburg Brings United States History to Life!

English Language and History students visited Colonial Williamsburg, participated in mock legislative and trial sessions, and learned how colonists lived, played, and worked together during the latter part of the 18th century.  The significant impact immigration and international commerce had on the development of the United States was a focal point of discussions during the day.  Students noted then, as it is now, that we are a better nation for having such a rich and diverse culture and economy.
