ABOUT THE COMPANY
Magical Movement Company is dedicated to offering children and their grown-ups high quality educational experiences based on the belief that we all learn through natural movement and the creative spirit within.
I'm Carolyn Lucento, a long time Montessorian, a grandmother, and admirer of wild flowers, music and art of all kinds. I created Magical Movement Company in 1992 as a way to enrich the learning experiences of the people around me through Music, Dance, Drama, The Arts and Nature. Over the years, I have worked and played with so many wonderful beings that I just had to create a "company" that includes all of them!
Since 2013, I have been an Orff-Schulwerk Music Specialist in Montessori programs throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Currently I teach one Lower Elementary and thirty Preschool classes each week...that's more than 650 students! And, I love it.
Before this, I was a Site Director at Fountainhead Montessori and before that I was an ECE Instructor at the American College of California. I have also owned my own Montessori School, Albion Children's House (in Mendocino, CA). In the 1980's I was the designer at our stained glass business, Asheville Art Glass, in Asheville, NC.
And, before all that, I was a High School Social Studies teacher! In 1980, I recieved my first Montessori Training from St. Nicholas Montessori College in London, and I became re-certified with AMS in 2006 through the Fountainhead Montessori Adult Education Program where I currently teach their Music Training Workshops to Montessori Interns each Spring.
I have certification in Orff-Schulwerk Music Education for children Preschool through Lower Elementary. I've danced with several Dance Companies in the SF Bay Area and I sing and play traditonal Mountain Music on my Appalachian Dulcimer & Autoharp. My own children were homeschooled through their High School years in our Montessori program, Pacific Coast Erdkinder.
