With weekly sessions through from September-Mid-November 2020, and January-May, the Sunday gatherings are scheduled to resume on June 13, 2021. We offer informal gatherings and exchanges of ideas in our Creative Conversations led by Susan McGuire and Creative Motion Clinics which are more formal presentations led by some of our certified Creative Motion Instructors exploring principles and concepts related to Creative Motion. Both Creative Conversation and Creative Motion Clinics are scheduled on Sunday afternoons and begin at 4pm Eastern (3pm central, 2pm mountain, 1pm Pacific).

2021 Dues Waiver Extended
In January 2021, the Executive Board decided to extend the waiver of the Creative Motion Alliance membership dues for 2021. You may recall this decision to waive fees began in early 2020 near the start of the pandemic. This decision was made due to a variety of circumstances, not the least of which was the devastating financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We want to ensure that every current, former and potential member of the Creative Motion Alliance continues to be included in our conversations and plans for the future. So again, this year, all we will need to process your membership in the Creative Motion Alliance is a valid email address and a confirmation of your contact information.
Although we will not be collecting dues, we encourage any who are financially able to send a financial contribution to support the work of the Creative Motion Alliance. Your donations help pay for filing fees, taxes, insurance and maintenance expenses, as well as help CMA to sponsor workshops and publications which help spread the word. As a 501c.3, your donations are tax-deductible too! You can make a donation here.
DONATIONS ALWAYS WELCOME
Please consider making a contribution to the Creative Motion Alliance. Your donations make a difference and help us reach our goals. Thanks for considering CMA as a part of your annual giving. You can make your tax-deductible donation here.
