Date: Wednesday, May 3
Time: 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00 Pacific time


Music and movement can reach students, can reach all of us, in ways we can only imagine. 

Patrick Cerria has used Dalcroze Eurhythmics to connect to autistic, physically disabled, at-risk, main-stream, and gifted students across elementary, middle, and high school. He employs music, movement, expression, socialization, and discovery with children of all abilities to help them grow and better understand themselves and their peers.

In this session, you will learn at least two techniques that you can take back to your classrooms to connect to and get through to students, and that the students will enjoy.

Patrick Cerria
Patrick Cerria studied Dalcroze Eurhythmics at The Juilliard School in Manhattan and completed his studies with honors. He has spent the last fifteen years teaching varied populations of students. These include a self contained school for autistic children; and another for students with physical disabilities and/or classified as medically fragile. He has worked extensively in inner-city urban education teaching grades kindergarten through eighth grade, and in two alternative high schools: one for at-risk students, and the second for inner-city students with behavioral classifications. His movement game based program, TumbleJam, has been recognized and endorsed by occupational, physical, and speech therapists as well as special education teachers and administrators. Patrick also provides staff development workshops to educators and administrators to help create movement based classroom management strategies and games so they can better accommodate the varied learners they must now teach.

Patrick will be speaking at the Serious Play Conference
