Trip Around the World! Zumba Kids & Yoga Camp @ Chaska High School
Jul 30 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

Your child will “travel” around the world by being introduced to dances, rhythms, crafts, and games from different cultures.  There will be special focus on the Spanish culture/language, so don’t be surprised if your little one comes home speaking in Spanish!  This camp emphasizes movement, dance and exercise, building confidence and showing kids that it’s okay to dance like nobody’s watching.  Towards the end of the morning, children will focus on mindful yoga & relaxation exercises to cool down.  The camp will end with a short performance, children will take home a passport showing their travels, and crafts from around the world!
