They are in comics, on television, and online. We hope they are really out there somewhere, up in the sky or down in their hideout cave, but they are surely in our hearts. Superhero stories are pervasive in American culture and are shared across generational divides. Many of us have donned the capes at one point, and with a big breath, jumped into the air. These stories serve as modern folktales as well as good educational foundations to exploring physical identity, teamwork, and ethics.

Our 3-part program is tiered by age and leads students through an increasingly more specific exploration of what it means to be “Super.” Each class starts with team-building and then grows to include more individualized skills that mimic the powers of famous superheroes. Numerous examples of heroes in fiction and in real life are used as models to transform our bodies and skills through objectives and games. Our instructors weave exploration of setting, physical skills, and team-based problem-solving with imagination and story-telling that will ensure physical and mental engagement by the students.

Here is an example of our Superhero Training events that we have offered offsite.
