Creativity Moves Lehigh Valley aims to address the development of the whole dancer through brain-based strategies and a holistic curriculum. We believe it is imperative to maintain research-based, best practices in the development of ourselves and of our children. We recognize the validity of diverse forms of self-expression and encourage each individual to pursue authenticity through their artistry.
At CMLV, we employ a creative approach to dance education. Utilizing creative movement, we place an emphasis on process rather than product while exploring dance in a variety of genres 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). Reflection, self-awareness, and personal growth are paramount to our practice.
"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. ET LIVE on Zoom
"Moving Together" Virtual Creative Movement Classes are intentionally designed for caregivers AND children (ages 3 - 7) 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.

Moving Together Spring Series 2021: "Flying Colors"
Journey over the rainbow with CMLV as we explore a colorful and creative approach to holistic wellness through movement in our "Moving Together Spring Series: Flying Colors."
This 6-week Virtual Creative Movement Program is designed for caregivers and children to move together in discovering new, embodied ways of navigating unexpected twisters of emotions.
We will be guided by some familiar friends from the land of Oz to explore the foundational movement concepts of Body, Energy, Space, and Time. Caregivers will reflect on positive parenting strategies based in neuroscience that allow both themselves and their children to return back home after finding themselves in an emotional landscape that they don't recognize.
Once we learn how to access all the gifts that we already possess, we can feel confident to ease on down any road we choose with our true colors flying high in the sky- just like a rainbow.
