Awareness & Motivation
Music, Movement and Motivation – Saidat’s Music Movement and Motion programs teach students at Public and Catholic and Christian Schools how to build self-esteem while dealing with the issues of bullying, helping to enhance the message that teachers are giving to their students everyday: that they are part of the solution. “I would like each student to come away with what I call an Unforgettable Moment, a part in the show where they felt the message hit home for them.”
