Every Body M.O.V.E. Program
Updated: February 17, 2021
You’re invited to participate in a brand new virtual offering from Colorado Ballet Education & Community Engagement. Every Body M.O.V.E. - Movement Opportunities for Virtual Education, is for teachers and school administrators to engage students in learning through movement. In this time of challenge and uncertainty we want to make it as low-cost, flexible, and as simple as possible for teachers to support their student’s learning, creativity, social and emotional skill development, and physical health
The Every Body M.O.V.E. PROGRAM AT A GLANCE:
- Two tracks of 2-8 minute videos: Two per week for 16 weeks, choose K-2 and/or 3-5th.
- Use videos in lessons, as transitions, or as independent assignments.
- Connection to a local arts organization with standards-based, fun material.
- Benefits for students include increased physical activity, improving life skills (e.g., spacial awareness and stress-management), time to be creative, and strengthening mind and body.

Classes & Workshops
School & Community Virtual Workshops*
Teachers, School Staff, and Community Organizers, we see you navigating challenging
territory and rising to the new challenges of the school year. We want to support you with
our most flexible options! You can customize content, date, time, and length of any of our
workshops. You can even request something new!
- Who: Any group of any age
- Cost: Depends on program content and format. Fees usually start at the discounted rate of $65 for 30 minutes. We will work with your budget!
- Live or Recorded: live-time via Zoom (or other platform), Broadcasted to your classroom/community center, Pre-recorded (limited availability), Other.
- Movement-based or lecture style
- Full class, half day, or movement breaks
Ex: Moving Matter (1st grade CDE Science Standard): “Freeze like a popsicle! Now melt like a popsicle on a hot summer day!” Students will use creative movement and the dance concept of Flow (bound and free) to embody different states of matter and the transitions between them before creating their own solid/liquid dance.
(Half) Day of Dance - multiple workshops in one with breaks for team building/developing social-emotional skills (starting at $7/student)
Movement Breaks (1-8 minute videos):
Ex: BrainDance, a fun full body-brain exercise based on developmental movement patterns that humans move through in the first year of life helping to integrate reflexes that are the foundation for healthy brain development and fill in missing gaps in our sensory-motor system.
- Visit our Workshops page to read about our options and to sign up (Note: It will look the same as booking an in-person traditional workshop that comes to you, but simply write your preferred format in the “Additional Comments” box).
