We have reset the bar as geriatric music professionals and we are proud of what we do.

Each  movement specialist has been personally selected and trained out in the  field in many types of senior environments including: Independent  living, assisted living, nursing and rehabilitation, adult day care, and  memory care communities.  Each instructor uses Lori's "Super 16" songs  to encourage movement, but also adds their own personal touch to their  programming using cognitive games and other fun activities.  Because we strongly  believe our seniors deserve quality, we have taken the steps necessary to be prepared for situations that may arise.  

Lori's Movin & Groovin standards for our MASTER instructors

1.  Each instructor must complete an instructor training course and pass an examination outlining:

  • Professional guidelines for instructors including professional conduct, safety concerns, room set-up, and proper attire.
  • Learning and implementing the Lori's Movin & Groovin formulated movements choreography.
  • How  to create engaging music and movement events for specific groups of  people with various disabilities and adding their own unique touch to  their programming.
  • Having a good understanding of contraindicated movements to avoid.

2. Each instructor must hold a current CPR/AED certification.

3. Each instructor must possess their own professional liability insurance.

4.  Each instructor must sign a non-compete agreement committing to  execute all Lori's Movin & Groovin choreography in a safe way and uphold our professional standards. 

5. Each instructor is subjected to a criminal background check and drug test using "Accushield" credentialing. 


Once  all of the criteria above is met,  the instructor is then certified to  perform Lori's Movin & Groovin music and movement programs anywhere  in the United States for one year.
