Take your kids on a musical journey around the globe and meet your own fitness goals by adding some ZUMBA® dancing to your classroom routine! In this course, participants will learn basic steps from the four core dance rhythms from Latin America that are the foundation of Zumba: Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, and Reggaeton. These steps will be taught using songs for Adult Zumba classes and Zumba Kids classes.
No prior dance experience required in this judgment free zone! We will also practice some fun American pop songs that children love. Teachers will learn how to incorporate dance into parts of their everyday routine such as circle time, holiday lessons, free centers, and transitions to and from the classroom. Teachers will also learn how to include cultural awareness lessons to circle time, center play, and structured small group activities.
These lessons will focus on countries in Latin America. Information will be given on adult Zumba classes available in the community to improve teachers’ physical health. Information will also be given on how to set up an official Zumba Kids class at teachers’ child care centers.
Please wear comfortable clothes and exercise shoes.
Please bring a bottle of water and a snack.
Let’s get moving!
