Toronto, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) July 03, 2013
InspirEd Arts Resources was contracted by Bangalore-based Fitkids Education & Training Pvt. Ltd, India’s premiere company providing complete solutions in Sports, Physical Education, Dance, S.T.E.M. and Career Counseling for children from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Fitkids currently serves more than 150 schools across the country through LeapStart, India’s leading Sports & Physical Education program, making a positive difference in the lives of over 100,000 children. InspirEd Arts was tasked to create their newest program, Grooming Artistic Innovation and Talent (GAIT) and is taking the same value added approach that they used to complement the Ontario arts curriculum with their current resources, directly aligning the GAIT program with the school curricula in India.
“We are happy to partner with InspirEd Arts in bringing to India our dance education program, GAIT. At FitKids, we firmly believe that an overemphasis on cognitive development that conventional education promotes, invariably leads to a lopsided development of the child, relegating the physical and artistic needs of the brain to a mere hobby. This limits the child’s ability for creative breakthroughs even in fields like science and technology. GAIT looks to address this creative gap in the present Indian education system and enhance the creative thinking of children through self-expression and divergent thinking, major components of creativity.” - Dev Roy, Founder and MD, FitKids Education and Training Pvt. Ltd
The program commenced across India in July 2013. InspirEd Arts Resources has been working with the GAIT team since July 2012, creating the materials and training their education professionals to properly administer the introductory four grades. InspirEd Arts Resources plans to increase the program’s availability to include more elementary grades through 2013 and will be launching an Ontario and International version of this dance education program by the end of 2013.
