The American Center for Elemental Music and Movement is to committed to promoting the artistic and pedagogical possibilities of elemental music and movement. In the belief that all human beings have the capability and need to express themselves through these media, the Center will offer educational programs and performance opportunities for children and adults. The goal of the Center's work is to provide learning opportunities for all ages that center around the intrinsic value of elemental music and movement experienced in an artistically meaningful way. Encouraging and creating opportunities for the study of pedagogical approaches toward facilitating experiences in elemental music and movement within and for a variety of communities is an extension of our main goal. This is accomplished through the creation of programs for educators and community members that explore and develop the skills to perform and create as well as foster the appreciation of elemental music and movement styles. We invite you to explore our growing resources and articles. Add you voice among our supporters! Our programs are expanding, and our impacts are creating positive ripple effects in classrooms across the U.S. and the world.

I am interested in the retreat and education! Do you know if this program will count for Michigan Continue Education credit on a teaching certificate? I understand that you probably have no idea, because I am not sure the Department of Education does. Thought I would ask you first though as maybe you have dealt with this before. Thank you for your time.

You will receive a certificate at the end of the retreat documenting your professional development hours. You are also able to take the course for a graduate credit through Ashland University. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our Retreat and Jamboree Coordinator, Kristin Smith at kristin@acemm.us

We hope to see you there!
