Creativity Moves Lehigh Valley classes utilize Creative Movement, a form of dance that aims to address the development of the whole person through brain-based strategies and a holistic curriculum. We believe it is imperative to maintain evidence-based, best practices in the development of ourselves and of our children.
At CMLV, we place an emphasis on process rather than product while exploring movement through story-telling, improvisation, and PLAY! Learning is developed conceptually, focusing on the foundational movement aspects of Body, Energy, Space, & Time (B.E.S.T).
Beginning in March 2020, CMLV was thrilled to be able to offer 9 weeks of virtual Creative Movement classes free of charge on Facebook LIVE during the Covid-19 pandemic in our "Moving Together" Mondays Series.
"I was so impressed with everything put into the class, the themes are perfectly tailored with great messaging, and my little guy was active, focused, engaged and loved every minute of time with Miss Angie." Lauren, Mom of Noah (3)
Virtual Creative Movement Classes for Caregivers AND Children Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. LIVE on Zoom
"Moving Together" Virtual Creative Movement Classes are intentionally designed for caregivers AND children (ages 3 - 6) to connect, breathe, and move together from the comfort and safety of home.
Through "Moving Together," CMLV aims to provide opportunities to co-regulate with our children, modeling movement-based strategies to creatively calm our brains and bodies when we encounter stress and BIG emotions.
Space is limited! Class sizes are kept small to allow for questions, feedback, and individual interaction with each family.
Classes are 45 minutes long with an additional 10 - 15 minutes of "reflect & connect" time afterwards, if you choose to participate. Participating caregivers are also invited to continue the conversation in our private Facebook group, "Moving Together: Developing Community," a safe space to share questions, reflections, and support, surrounding the areas of personal development, positive parenting, and dance education.

"I loved the message and reflection. CMLV went above and beyond to share perspective, much more than any class I've taken." Hilary, Mom of Joey (5) and Sammy (3)
"Moving Together Autumn Series: Falling into Awareness"
Along with colorful leaves and pumpkin-spiced everything, Fall brings with it yet another season of change and uncertainty to our daily lives. Our brains and bodies are enduring unending amounts of stress and sometimes react in surprising ways. Understanding these instinctual reactions are one of the keys to managing our feelings of emotional overwhelm. When we are calm, the chances are greater that our children will be calm, too.
Caregivers AND Children are invited to move, play, and breathe together with Creativity Moves Lehigh Valley as we explore the autonomic nervous system's four stress responses (Fight, Flight, Freeze, and Fawn) through engaging themes to help us find strength and safety in self-awareness.
