I have a nine year autistic daughter who loves music and loves to dance. The format of the DVD is unusual, but appropriate for children who have difficulty processing language. There are no verbal instructions. Instead, a group of dancers of all ages and types, including a man in a wheel chair, perform simple, rhythmical movement patterns. The movements are repeated slowly and then steadily build and develop throughout the video. The movements are performed to fantastic classical music. There are 20 different movement tracks of about 2 to 3 minutes each. My daughter loves this DVD and tries to learn the patterns and dance with the group. The package also includes a CD and a guide book. When she isn't moving to this DVD, she often just listens to the music.

Basically, there are about twenty clips. Each one has a different piece of music and the people on the screen (a combo of adults and children) do movements in unison that articulate the phrasing in the music. It is a great way for a child (and adult!) to understand the music through physical movement. I watch this with my 2 year old. We do the movements together and she loves it. I'm surprised this hasn't really caught on. It is so beautifully done. I find it totally irrelevant that it doesn't have high tech production values. The artistry and substance of this dvd stands on its own.

After experiencing a workshop with John Feierabend, I was planning to purchase this for my classroom. It was great to find it at Amazon. The DVD/CD helps children experience classical music in a new way and keeps them focused and involved in the listening process.

My only reservation about the DVD is that the movement is from the waist up. It just takes getting used to. I can see the value of this on one hand but on the other hand, so much of our steady beat movement occurs with the feet. The dancer in the DVD is wonderful to watch. She has subtlety in her movement.
When I tried it out with my students, I found it much harder for the students to do. I would not try to do all the movements at once but select two movements at a time and repeat them in a structurely sound way.

This is a GREAT addition to a music teacher's set of materials......my classes follow the movements of the people on the video in a mirror fashion and they have a lot of fun doing it. Great for mixing some movement into a music teacher's classroom and uses classical music to do it. Would recommend for primary kids but a special set of older elementary students may do these movements with a teacher that has the right way of introducing them. Very good for introductory ways of showing expressiveness in movement to music and is also a nice introduction to Feirerabend for music teachers that haven't used his music learning materials.

I like the idea of expressing the different parts of the musical pieces with movement. I recently used 3 of the selections to teach my students for a December performance and both students and parents liked them. The fact that most selections are for performing without moving your feet has advantages and disadvantages. Students do want to move their feet! The positive side is that they can be done in a classroom setting or in a small space. As a "cart music teacher" I appreciate that fact!

I love this DVD because it has wonderful, easily done, movement. I gave 4 stars rather than 5 because it lacks in whole body movement. The movement examples are mainly stationary movement and not traveling movement. Though one is most likely limited as far as the amount of space available for movement in a classroom. In which case, Move It is a perfect resource for getting kids to move with music.

Elementary music teachers: buy this DVD! It is a great way to get your kids engaged with classical music. My kids love following along with the movements for each song. They especially love giving names to the movements. "This part is like the sun." "This is like a fish...NO, a snake!!" "When we circle our hands like this, it's like we're stars." The DVD and CD include 20-some musical excerpts of classical music, with accompanying movements to use in the elementary classroom. The music becomes a story and the musical forms are suggested through the repeated different movements. This DVD is a must buy...and amazon's price, when I bought it, was incredible! I think I got it for $20, when it lists at $45.
