Dear Creative Moves Friends,

I’d like to introduce you to Clara, she’s what’s been keeping this creative Mommy very busy over the past year!  I’ve missed all my special movers very much but this little girl and her brothers have definitely been keeping me on my toes!

I was able to return to my Creative Moves teaching position at St. Paul’s School and Clara’s adapted very well to the time away from me (I’ve definitely missed her more than she misses me!).

I am not currently teaching any regular studio classes but I’m happy to announce that I’m taking event bookings for Birthday parties and group events.  So if you have a little mover and you’re looking for a fun and creative party idea, let’s chat!  Or if you are part of a Mother’s group and you’re looking for a special way to spend playgroup this week, these get togethers are always a hit too!

Feel free to email me at Amanda@moving-body.com to discuss party/event details.  These events can be booked at any venue of your choosing but I do have a great relationship with Nia Moves Studio in the Heights and they have a beautiful studio/party room space that can be added on to my birthday package if you need a venue!

Thank you for bearing with me during my year off (how is my baby almost 1!) and I look forward to dancing with you again one day soon!

Best wishes,

Ms. Amanda

Is Summer over already?

For our Summer class schedule it is, our new class time will be Wednesdays 10:30am-11:15am!  There will be a 5 class pass available for $65 which is good for 60 days and the normal family drop in rate will still be $15/class!  I look forward to wiggling, shaking and dancing the rest of the year away with you and your Tots!

Visit Nia Moves website to book now.

If your kiddo is between the ages of 3-5 and toilet trained I’ve got another exciting announcement!  Starting in September I’ll be co-teaching an exciting Enrichment program at the Beehive Co-op Preschool in West U.  Myself and Brooke Bailey, who runs the amazing storytelling company SunBee Circle will be leading Fusion Fridays at the Beehive and the drop off class will be available for outside families to book starting August 30th!

Visit the Beehive Enrichment Page for further details if you’d like to be added to the waiting list for any free spots that become open to the public on August 30th!

As always please contact me directly if you are interested in organizing a private class for your home school group, mothers’ group or a birthday party!  We can find a time to do a class at the studio or even at your own home!  Contact Amanda on amanda@moving-body.com.

New Day & Time for Fall

Starting in September the Creative Moves for Tots class will be moving to FRIDAYS from 10:45am-11:30am!  I hope this will still be a day and time that works for most of our families as I have so enjoyed watching your little ones grow over the past year!

We start our first class on Friday September 4th so look forward to dancing with you and your Tots!

POSTING A REMINDER:  Creative Moves for Tots is cancelled for the next 2 WEEKS.  The space is being used by Whole Kids Camp (which I am also teaching on), there are actually a few spots left in the first week of camp so if you  know of any creative 7-12 year olds looking for a camp the first week of August, send them our way, it runs Aug 3rd-7th 9am-3pm.

Our last two Creative Moves classes for the Summer are on Thursday August 20th & 27th from 10:30am-11:15am.

If you are interested in staying updated on current events, demos and classes please visit the Moving-Body Facebook page and “Like”.

I can’t believe that Summer is upon us!  Since we live in Houston this means gearing up for sticky, hot weather with a slice of humid rain showers!  Nia Moves is running a Summer Fun Pass for the Creative Moves for Tots Dance Class so pick a class number option and come join the fun inside an air conditioned, beautiful yoga studio!  It’s an amazing space for Tots to wiggle, shake, run and stretch their bodies as well as their imaginations!
