ABOUT US

The Center for Movement Education and Research (CMER) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the use of movement and dance as a creative and integrated source for improving educational, medical, social and cultural domains.

Our curriculums are founded on the premise that movement has the power to facilitate education and healing, to foster learning, creativity, and health. We believe that people of all ages benefit from moving with mind-body awareness and creative choice.

OUR MISSION

 

The mission of the Center for Movement Education and Research (CMER) is to establish a place for in depth learning and research in movement education, dance/movement therapy, and ongoing understanding of the body-mind integration through movement practices. CMER provides professional training in the varied applications of movement and dance as a creative and integrated source for improving educational, medical, social and cultural domains.



OUR PURPOSE

 

The Center for Movement Education and Research (CMER) is created as a new model of movement education, one that integrates academic theories of mind-body integration with movement and dance practice for all people. CMER is a source for educational programs which are founded on the premise that movement has the power to humanize and foster values of democracy and diversity.

 

The Center will offer a variety of public classes to serve a broad spectrum of citizens. Movement classes will be designed for children and adults, those with special health needs and a spectrum of multicultural backgrounds. Dedicated to developing movement as a source for education and healing, professional certificates will be given for in depth study in the field of dance/movement therapy and movement education.
