Gymnastic is included in classical education in order to habituate various physical virtues. Throughout the course of students’ time at the School, this will occur in various ways. The students will enjoy intramural sports and various outdoor excursions and field trips. As time permits, they will also be instructed in the rudiments of various technical skills (e.g., shop class or carpentry).
Ballroom and other formal dances will also be taught. This instruction will include in-class lessons and communal dances for families several times throughout the year. While such instruction can complement instruction in the Music class, it also promotes various moral virtues by habituating students in the fitting enjoyment of the sensible delight of music and dance.
