School-age 2

Zumba
December 2019

 

On Friday December 6th, we had our PA Day. The School-Age 2 children have always been into dance and music, so we thought they would be excited to experience a for a dance lesson. The children had a session of Zumba. Zumba is a fitness class, which combines latin dance and fitness moves. Zumba is inspired by latin dance and music. Zumba has different routines such as Hip Hop, Reggae, Salsa and so much more varieties to sculpt the body with fast and slow rhythms.

The children had a blast dancing with the Zumba instructor, Cassandra. Every move demonstated by Cassandra, the children would follow along. Samantha and Cyrawould even follow Cassandra  when she drank from her water bottle.  Also taking a water break before learning some new motions.

This gross motor activity allowed for the children to maintain a healthy heart rate, fostered their coordination skills, and helped keep their bodies moving while still having  a fun cardio workout, If you’re into dance and music,  Zumba is a great activity that is fun and leaves you feeling happy.

Since the children really enjoyed Zumba, we are hoping to invite Cassandra back during the summer and perhaps dance outside.
