Re-energize your students with these fun, contemporary dance routines! The Fit Kids' Classroom Workout can be used in any school space, anytime, any day to invigorate and motivate your students. It gets students excited about being physically active and provides an ideal break from the day's routines. It can also be used as a warm-up to other physical activity.
The program includes four 5-minute and two 10-minute workouts, plus a brief “healthy message” at the end of each exercise segment. Each classroom workout teaches moves from a different genre:
- Hip & Happening Kardio Funk
- Drum Beating, Foot Stomping African
- Shimmy, Shaking & Loving Latin
- Heart Pounding, Arms Pumping Aerobic Dance
The two 10-minute choreographed workouts—“Getting Funky” and “Loving African” —link the moves that have been taught during the four shorter workouts, while the six healthy messages provide basic information about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
