CB Moves

Developed in partnership with Cincinnati Children's

CB Moves is designed to foster a love of dance and creative expression for individuals with specific needs. With curriculum designed in consultation with the Department of Physical Therapy at Cincinnati Children’s, we offer a variety of classes for students from age four through young adults. Led by qualified faculty and experienced physical therapists, our CB Moves team is deeply committed to safely supporting all participants as they explore the rich benefits of movement, music and a highly engaged student community.

Open to students ages 4 – young adult. Placement assessment required for all participants.
