​*Foundations of Movement & Dance for Young Children  

Kitty Keyser, Instructor.

Creative Dance and Movement is designed to help children discover movement, spacial awareness, rhythm and form. Emphasis in class is on exploration and experimentation in a cooperative atmosphere. There are 3 class levels. Placement is primarily according to age or instructor's approval. Level one will incorporate movement that is fun, often with music. Level two, will do the same but the movements will become more complex. Level three is a continuation of level two, but more improvisation, references to modern dance and ballet (known as “pre-dance” or “pre-ballet”), will be included.  Note: This class was originally called "Creative Dance & Movement for Children."

Therapeutic Movement Class, "TMC"
(This class can be made available online through Zoom.  Private sessions available.
​​Instructor, Philip Rosemond

"TMC" is a class offered in conjunction with Mountainside Physical Therapy.

Therapeutic Movement Class is for people struggling with recovery from injury, disease oriented movement issues, age related issues, coordination issues that are habitual or related to injury. The class is also for those interested in exploring a larger range of movement options than they have in the past.

 

The class is taught by Physical Therapist, Anne Williams and/or Movement and Dance specialist Philip Rosemond. They teach the class as a whole as well as with each client on specific problems. The class is designed to use simple movements beginning with the arms and head, working through the body to the legs, seated in a chair and standing at the ballet barre. We use chairs, the ballet barre, fitness balls and other simple tools to help the students with their specific issues.

 

No student is pushed to work beyond their ability, rather they are encouraged to work towards better mobility, flexibility and stamina. Some of the techniques we incorporate are drawn from floor work, yoga and other movement modalities designed to help both general as well as specific movement issues. The class is held at Mountainside Dance Center, but is a program run by Mountainside Physical Therapy, 

  • $15 for one class, $25 if two classes are paid in advance at MPT.
