To promote creativity and aesthetics amongst our children, One Stop prepares different art projects weekly. From painting on a canvas to crafting a unique figurine, they will get to use a variety of materials and techniques. They will also be working on special projects during the holiday seasons like Valentine’s Day and Christmas.
Our choir class is offered by Mr. Eric Liu, an enthusiastic and talented musician who is an expert in vocal, piano, and violin. Mr. Eric serves as the Choral Director of several renowned Bay Area Choirs and as a guest conductor for many others. Liu has been featured on KTSF26 Talk Show, World Journal, Sing Tao News, and San Francisco Chronicle for his dedication to the choral community. Mr. Liu is good at connecting with students through not only music but his energetic teaching style as well. Children will get to sing traditional and trendy songs, as well as original pieces that are composed by our choir teacher.
We partner with the Get Down Studio in San Jose Japantown for the Hip Hop class. Our Hip Hop teachers, Mr. Brian and Ms. Basma are talented dancers who love to work with children. Mr. Brian began dancing in garages with neighborhood kids in the early 90’s. His passion for dancing led him to open his own dancing studio. Ms. Basma began dancing and performing professionally in Morocco, training in a variety of styles from Contemporary Jazz to Hip-Hop and appearing in television shows, movies, and concerts. Students will be able to release their energy when learning fun dance moves and flowing with the music!
Our Kung Fu class is offered by Master Dong Liu from Dynamic Kung Fu Academy in Cupertino, which has been serving the South Bay for more than 10 years and has cultivated many Kung Fu champions in the Bay Area. Master Liu is ranked at 6th Duan in Chinese Martial Arts and an International A-level Martial Arts Judge. He is proficient in Shaolin Kungfu and modern martial arts. Master Liu has won a number of international and domestic martial arts competition championships. He is a strict yet encouraging "shi-fu" to many of our students.
Our Yoga class is offered by Ms. Trixie, an RYT200 yoga instructor from Sizi Yoga & Lifestyle in Cupertino. As children practice a series of asana poses and breathing exercises, not only can they increase their strength and flexibility, they will also learn to control their body and mind, such as how to calm themselves down and how to release their emotions properly. Children will be able to understand yoga, not as a sport, but as a lifestyle that emphasizes peace and mindfulness. It can be a lifelong practice that supports them in many ways.
