Our kids’ programs provide a friendly, safe environment to explore movement. PISE uses a combination of structured and unstructured play to help children learn to move to the best of their ability. We inspire creative movement exploration to play your way to confidence, skill development, fun, team work, cooperation, respect and inclusivity. Learn more. By building a movement vocabulary through games and play, kids build the foundation to live an active, healthy lifestyle.
