READ MORE ABOUT The Early Childhood Program
.....Dancing wth Delight synopsis.--

KIDS CO-MOTION was founded in 1992 by dancers and parents Craig Brashear and Rebecca Kelly, KCM provides a joyful learning atmosphere beginning with motion, music, tumbling, and song for very young children and their caregivers, and continues through skill-building dance classes for teens. Class offerings respond to the neighborhood demand, so the schedule.can fluctuate.

KIDS CO-MOTION offers an opportunity for constructive play and learning in a big space. In an urban environment where not everyone has access to a playground, families welcome a place for their children to be dynamically active in a wholly positive way. Exposure to the arts at an early age from the pre-schooler to the middle school child, stimulates the kind of cognitive development that children need and don't get from passive activities like TV and video games. Dance and performance ignite the imagination.

KCM MichelleKIDS CO-MOTION
builds movement vocabulary, while playfully exploring music and a broad range of movement skills which build self esteem and confidence. Classes encompass the social skills involved in working in groups or as leaders, taking turns, remembering sequences, assuming responsibility for one's "conduct" as well as making riends and treating each other with respect. KCM uses a variety of fine music exposing families to the pleasures of moving to classical, folk, popular, and ethnic selections.

PROGRAM, ages walking to 40 mo
In Parent/ Child
classes language and song are used as a means of guiding and promoting active listening and focus in young children. Because KCM's programs bring children together with adults, children also are exposed to and develop important interactive social skills. KCM Sharyn

Ages 3.5-18 years
Offered weekday afternoons in SoHo. The program is designed to develop confidence, self-awareness, self-discipline, and careful music listening skills, along with a growing movement vocabulary. The After School Program continues with increasingly formal training in creative movement, modern dance, ballet, and performance through teens.

Creative Movement and Dance Basics for ages 3.5-12
years includes a variety of drop-off classes. Students are introduced to ballet vocabulary and dance basics by learning short dances to great classical music as well as rock 'n roll, funk, and country and more.
Find out if your 3.5 -year is old ready.

The serious study of classical ballet begins between 8-11 years old, when some children begin to be physically and mentally ready for the discipline, strenuous work, as well as the math of ballet. The age at which classical instruction begins is not as important as making a good start with a good teacher, and being able to concentrate on the activities. Only regular participation, persistence, and much practice makes a dancer.

Most classes are pro-rated, and you can join at any time.
Fall, or Winter/ Spring sessions. Let us share our 25-year experience creating positive learning experiences for children. Kelly and Brashear are available as Guest Lecturers for Panels and Parenting Discussion Groups. Kids Co-Motion is also offered throughout Westchester, the Lamm Pre-School in Brooklyn, for developmentally delayed children, in several pre-school cooperatives in Manhattan, as an URBAN FIELD TRIP (PS 198 Bronx), and in the Northern Adirondacks rural outreach program in the summer.
