Elementary Creative Movement Educators’ Resource Guide
Welcome to PBT’s Creative Movement Residency
Welcome to our Creative Movement Portal – a resource for educators who are participating in our 9-week residency in Creative Movement!
What is Creative Movement?
Creative movement is just that: moving our bodies in a creative way and requires no formal dance training. Creative movement classes are designed to encourage a child’s imagination and exploration through guided movement exercises.
How can Creative Movement help my students?
The primary goals of creative movement classes are for each child to develop an enjoyment of movement and learn how to control their moving bodies. Classes can also help your student:
- develop inhibitory control, working memory, and cognitive flexibility
- awaken their five senses
- developing literacy skills
- develop healthy physical activity habits
- gain positive self-awareness, social skills, and overall brain power
What’s the process?
Community Education Coordinator Kerra Alexander will contact you to schedule your residency. The sections below outline the process throughout the residency.
