Zumba is an exciting and invigorating opportunity for children to express themselves. Choreography, diverse musical choices, and a light-hearted atmosphere combined with a judgment-free environment all converge to form the perfect recipe for self-discovery and expression. Though the shy or more reserved child may choose to blend in to the background, they may also find a chance to come to the fore. It is often the latter that comes to be. Children find this class, powered by music that is relevant and exciting to them, to be the perfect place to experiment with being more outgoing. All of this is offered without demands from the instructor, the children find it within themselves. On the last day of class, parents will be invited to see the choreography that the students have learned. In the Spring, the students will be included in the Upper School Dance performance
