Hip Hop in Gym

April 7, 2010 · 1 Comment

This week we began our Hip Hop dance unit in gym class.  Nancy Griffiths, a Lane parent and instructor at Kamate Fitness led the kids through funky moves as the sounds of  Top 40 music and “Thriller” by Michael Jackson echoed through the gym. Although Nancy isn’t offering a student class through the Rec Dept this Spring, there will be a kids class in the Fall.  However for you adults out there, Nancy passed this on to me:

Mrs. Griffiths’ modern and innovative weight lifting and dance classes for adults are now being offered at the Bedford Rec Department this spring.  Classes start April 10th.”

We thank Mrs. Griffiths for volunteering her time to come in this week to provide every class the opportunity to try this exciting program.

    I think this is a wondeful idea. The school I work for also did a similar program over the summer and the amount of kids that attended was amazing. We are so quick to tell our kids they need to do something but we first have to remember that if we provide opportunities that are in their interest they would begin to do it on their own! Kids want to do things we just have to help provide it!
