Creative Movement Classes For Children Offered At UW-RF

Parents looking for a way to channel their child's cabin fever into creative movement and self-expression can register for creative movement classes for ages 3 to 6 offered by the UW-River Falls Outreach and Graduate Studies Office.

Creative movement classes are growing in popularity across the country because of their emphasis on increasing body, movement and spatial awareness, says instructor Susan Sell. Children can also benefit through improved muscle development and coordination, increased self-control and self-esteem, and imaginative interactions with others. Any child with an interest in physical activity, including dance or sports, would be a likely participant.

"The classes are designed to encourage children to express themselves and their ideas by exploring new ways of movement and refining their existing abilities," says Sell. "We'll use colorful props, imagery and music to encourage and stimulate the child's imagination."

The four-week class is held Saturdays, March 22, 29 and April 5, 12 at UW-RF. The class for ages 5-6 meets from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. and for ages 3-4 meets from 10:30 to 11 a.m. Cost is $25. Class size is limited.

For more information or to register, contact the Outreach and Graduate Studies office at 715/425-3256.
