Kids that are accustomed to constant exposure to TV, computers and video games may struggle with attention span, weight, self-esteem and physical fitness issues. Our goal is to help children develop a healthy lifestyle and incorporate fitness as a regular part of their lives, not just as a class they attend once a week. When teaching children, we don’t focus on the physical activity aspect as much as the “fun” to keep them engaged in the class. The Zumbatomic® program makes working out and dancing both cool and exciting. The key to keeping them coming back week after week is to achieve the perfect balance between fun, effectiveness, difficulty, change and familiarity. This session will give you new class ideas, new choreography, teaching techniques, as well as the opportunity to network and share concerns, suggestions and tips with your fellow Zumbatomic® Instructors.
