We believe physical activity is vital for kids! This is backed up by the Kids Count Colorado report. In 2012 Morgan County had the highest rate of obesity in the state!
For this reason and because we work with kids, we believe in moving! One our more popular fitness activities is dance. We teach traditional forms such as ballet, tap and jazz as well as modern dance, yoga and tumbling. To get parents involved in our fitness activities we offer Zumba, cardio kickboxing and Tai Chi.
At the end of each dance session the kids get to perform a recital for the community - complete with an autograph signing session.
We also bring in performers such as Colorado Ballet, Canyon Concert Ballet, CU Dance Outreach and Denver Bronco Cheerleaders to hold workshops.
When we aren't dancing, we are off to the park - anything that promotes movement and activity! We play lots of basketball, kickball and other sports games. We love playing with giant parachutes and inflatable balls. We make chalk hopscotch drawings and play on the sidewalk. Our kids love activities and we strive to provide constructive ways for them to expend energy.
