Classes go online April 6
Project Commotion's in-studio and in-person programs are currently suspended while our community shelters-in-place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet our staff are active and engaged, and ready to support the wellness of our community with our skills and adaptability. We are here for our families, our partners and each other, and hope you will join us!
PC Staff are maintaining close contact with our participants -- virtually providing emotional and academic support, creating video content to keep children and families physically active in their homes, and helping families connect to vital resources such as food pick-up locations and mental health. Our team is bringing consistency and familiarity back into the lives of our children. Preschool families are joining for virtual story time, movement classes, and snack time songs. Movement class participants are tuning in for virtual capoeira, dance, creative expression, and music lessons.
All of our Spring Session movement classes will be running online.
Programming starts on Monday, April 6th, and you can register here.
What's the Commotion all about?
Project Commotion is a community space where children, families and educators are invited to learn and grow together through movement, sensory experiences, and play.
We offer programming that incorporates tumbling, music, play, dance, and martial arts as a means of fostering healthy development, self-awareness and self-expression. Class sizes are small to allow our instructors the time and space to connect with every child and every family, and so that we may structure our classes to meet the needs of participants.
A San Francisco-based non-profit organization, Project Commotion welcomes ALL children between the ages of 0 months to 18 years, and their families. We strive in particular to support under-served families of children with special needs, as well as caretakers and educators, by fostering healthy physical, emotional, and cognitive development.
Project Commotion's five branches of programming include:
• PC Movement Classes: group, private and semi-private lessons for children, youth and adults
• Las Luciérnagas Early Childhood Program: Half-day bi-lingual Early Childhood Education program for 2 - 5 year olds
• Above & Beyond School Age Enrichment Program: After School Enrichment and Summer Camps
• Schools on the Move!: Partnerships with schools that bring comprehensive movement programs to children, parents and educators
• Community Move!: Workshops, Trainings and Mentoring for parents, students, educators, and professionals.
