Fultz, Dave Problem Solving and Learning Through Juggling Performing Arts- Juggling
This is a fun, informative and unique program that uses learning to juggle as an example of how to keep negative emotions from getting in the way of the learning process. Western New York juggler, Dave Fultz, discusses how negative emotions such as fear, confusion, and frustration can get in the way when you are trying to learn something that you may find difficult. A step-by-step incremental approach is introduced where each step has a clearly defined objective. Once you reach your goal for each step, you are prepared and confident that you can handle the next step. Kid's will learn the very best tried and true method of learning to juggle while they learn to learn. This is a humorous, entertaining and memorable approach to education that students may find helpful for many years to come.
