No words can express my gratitude for the AMTworkshop. You are a true inspiration Joanne Lara!


- Brittni Cleland, ABA BII, San Diego, Ca


There's a bridge between the left and right hemisphere that transmits information. What happens with our kids is that the transmission of the information is not going through. Dance and music forces the brain to reorganize itself. Through the music and the movement the child is being asked to hear the music, process the sequence and the patterns, and then dance, it takes both sides of the brain to dance.“ 


- Joanne Lara, ABC 7 News, Denise Dador

The workshop/training was amazing and I loved every second of it. I had the chance to bring my autistic nephew to the class Joanne held as an example for us and it opened my eyes to endless possibilities for him and my career... I also want to personally thank Ali Golding & MovementWorks for linking me up with Joanne. It has changed my life for the better and I can’t wait to see what the future holds
