Creative Movement and Dance® (CMD) is the premier ON-SITE (we do not have a studio) dance instruction company in the Southeast. Founded by Gina Burton in 1983 in Atlanta, Georgia, CMD has expanded to Florida and South Carolina. 

We DO NOT HAVE A STUDIO – we offer instruction at hundreds of Child-Care Facilities, Churches, Parks & Recs, and some elementary after-school locations AT THEIR SITES.  All of our instructors are professionals (i.e., degree’d in dance, and/or professional resume).  So we can offer to “BRING A PROFESSIONAL STUDIO TO YOU” – conveniently offering studio quality instruction, at lower cost than studios, without the need to transport your child to and from a studio in the evenings or weekends.

Most locations we serve are “closed enrollment” – meaning your child would have to attend the facility to participate in our program.  However, several do offer “open enrollment.”  Let us know your area, and we’ll try to find a suitable location that we serve for you.

CMD’s Mission

  • to provide professional quality creative movement instruction for the parents of children 18 months -36 months, and dance instruction for ages 3 & up, at church, child care centers, parks & recreation facilities, public and private schools;
  • and to enhance the enrichment programs of all on-site locations.

We are committed to quality dance training, taught by the most talented dance teachers in the South. CMD teachers are reliable and always prepared, with well-planned, age-appropriate lessons. They enjoy the children, and welcome parents to observe at any time.  CMD classes are structured, yet flexible to meet the needs of pre-schoolers thru primary students who need to have fun while learning.
