Love * Love * Love * Valentines Day 2023

What a great gift for Valentines Day! Based on the song "Love Love Love" by Sara O'Brien and the Community Rocks Kids! written to honor the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Your purchase supports Community Rocks! in their mission for ALL kids (families & folks) in EVERY neighborhood to have access to MUSIC, ARTS, WELLNESS and opportunities to GIVE BACK.

Wellness * Arts * Music * Give Back 

Community Rocks believes that true wellness is physical, mental, intellectual, social, spiritual, environmental and occupational well-being. Our programs reflect this.


When Covid hit, we hit the streets and the outdoors became our classroom. We created our TRACK TEAM was born (we RUN tracks and RECORD tracks). We created free online access to our classes and programs via social media and various online platforms.  Fitness Rocks! & Arts moved to parks and playgrounds and Circus in the City was born.


COMMUNITY ROCKS TEAMs:
With ukuleles in hand and boxes for drums we skip, flip, run, race, strengthen and stretch, singing, dancing, laughing, learning and channeling good health and wellness.  COMMUNITY ROCKS! RAP & RHYME


Community Rocks is creative, active and kind. Opportunities everywhere for everyone to SHINE! We sing, we dance, we work together, WE ROCK! Make a difference in our lives, in the world and on our block.


GIVE BACK:  Since 2010, Community Rocks has engaged over 3,500 kids, 1200 teens, 3000 toddlers, 2200 adults, 800 seniors and inspired thousands at events, festivals and school assemblies.

Over the past five years,  we’ve distributed 2500 Kids Care Bags containing personal care items, fitness tools and art supplies.


Community Rocks! uses reused, recycled and environmentally-friendly supplies & found objects to create new and fabulous art. 

Kids learn how to reduce waste, be creative with limited resources,
respect the earth and use imagination to transform trash to treasure. 
For ideas and inspiration, check out our photo album.

Supplies and donations are always accepted & appreciated.
Lyrics from the Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! song describe it best when we sing “use old stuff again.”

Music * Arts * Wellness * Families * Folks * Fun

Our Story

Community Rocks Corp. was founded out of Studio LuLoo, a creative, performing and healing arts space that brought together families and folks, young and old, to express themselves through music, art and yoga.  Believing in the power of arts and wellness to feed the human spirit, we wanted to make it accessible to everyone and under one roof.  "LuLoo", as it was called, was a community center by day hosting kids classes and camps and a music venue by night hosting bands and performers from around the country and different parts of the globe.


Studio LuLoo was named after a musical-magical fairy born created one Halloween night by Community Rocks' founder, Sara O'Brien to raise awareness for breast cancer and her family's foundation, the Tyanna Foundation. The Tyanna Foundation started in memory of their mother who passed away from breast
cancer.
Fairy LuLoo has since evolved into a joyful character representing both organizations and is often seen serenading at birthday celebrations🥰


Timeline

  • Studio LuLoo first opened in November 2006 at 1001 White Horse Pike, now the SoHa Arts Building 
  • The first location was  1001 White Horse Pike, Haddon Township, NJ (now the SoHa Building)  (link CBS video) 
  • In 2008 we moved across the street to 916 White Horse Pike in Oaklyn and simultaneously opened a Studio Luloo Haddonfield, just for kids!
  • Community Rocks Corp. officially became exempt on June 21, 2010-January 2011
  • Studio LuLoo, home of Community Rocks made its 4th moved to  215 W. Clinton Avenue, Oaklyn, NJ
  • June 2016 Community Rocks received a grant from Virtua Foundation to teach music, arts & wellness at Virtua's CASTLE Program in Camden, NJ
  • Our word went "on tour" to neighoring towns, cities and communities.
