We Work Together, WE ROCK!
When Covid hit, we hit the streets and the TRACK TEAM was born (we run tracks and record tracks!) When playgrounds STAYED closed the outdoors became our classroom for Music, Arts and FitnessROCKS! classes. With guitars in hand and boxes for drums we were Skipping and flipping, throwing and performing Active Arts and the CIRCUS IN THE CITY was born. We hope you can "Join the Circus" this winter (or spring). Check out our schedule and join us on-line or in-person for classes and GIMME 5! Five things every day to earn High5s🖐🏾🖐🏻🖐🖐🏿🖐🏽
Today and every day, do something Creative, Active, Kind, Read-Write-ROCK & Shine and GIMME 5 every time!

FACTS & HISTORY
Community Rocks Corp. was founded out of Studio LuLoo (est.2006-2018), a creative, healing and performing arts space that brought together family and folks, young and old, to express themselves through music, art and yoga. "LuLoo" as it was called, was a community arts center by day, and a music venue by night. The name was inspired by "LuLoo" a pink-haired purple winged musical magical fairy (and Sara O'Brien's "alter ego" born one Halloween night in Athens, GA ). In June 2010, Community Rocks officially became exempt and our work went "on tour" throughout neighboring cities and communities.
- Studio LuLoo was established in November, 2006.
- Studio LuLoo-Community Rocks hosted bands and performers from around the country and different parts of the world
- 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 Kids in Haddonflied, just for kids.
- Community Rocks Corp. officially became exempt on June 21, 2010
- Studio LuLoo, home of Community Rocks made its 4th moved to 215 W. Clinton Avenue, Oaklyn, NJ
