From Fire to Inspire is an movement program that uses juggling to engage learners of all ages, in schools, recreational settings, and the workplace, in building an understanding the conditions under which the brain and body system learns and works most efficiently.
From Fire to Inspire in schools is designed to help learners develop a healthy way to think about and reflect on learning. It can be delivered as professional development with staff only, students only, or children and adults learning side by side.
Each experience connects learners to:

Before/After School & Camp Programs
Jump, Juggle & Get Along is a great addition to your before/after school program or summer camp that helps children connect with others while learning individual, partner, and group circus arts and rope jumping skills. I can work directly with program leaders, participants, or a combination of both to create a before or after school physical activity program designed to meet the needs of multi-age participants. Before you know it, it will be run by the participants with everyone learning and practicing physical, social, and emotional skills!
"Liz is, without question, the best teacher I ever supervised during my 40+ years in public education. As her principal, I was privileged to be able to observe her effectiveness both in the classroom and with the extra-curricular activities she created and led. Liz is in a class by herself! She made it her mission to understand how children learn, how their brains work, and what is needed in order for them to thrive. Watching her in action in the classroom or during a jump rope practice was a mesmerizing experience! Students were attentive and excited and fully engaged in the learning process – ALL the students, ALL the time. No exceptions. The labels of autism, LD, ESL, MR, BD, and all the rest had no place in her world. She knew instinctively, and from her extensive research, what children need in order to learn and grow and blossom – no matter their starting point. If I could have one wish for the state of public education in our country, it would be that every classroom, not just physical education classrooms, could have a Liz Giles-Brown leading it!"
