Find your groove

Not all kids like to participate in one main stream sport or activity.  Switch it up and keep the kids guessing. Dancing is fun and appealing to the eye but also can get people active.  Think about it. You're in a really good mood listening to one of your favorite songs when you spontaneously bust into dance. Little do you know through all your enjoyment that you are getting exercise. Dance can involve all parts of the body! Increase endurance, improve strength, improve eye hand coordination along with footwork and much much more. Besides just the physical aspect it also taps into the affective and mental categories. Dancing can be done just about everywhere. Doesn't require anything you don't use in your everyday routine. A couple different styles of dance can be shown in class and encouraged to do outside of class too.
