Description: 

DanceXercisE was created in 2008 out of the need for the community
to address the alarming high percentage of childhood obesity due to
lack of activities. It mixes fun-filled, high-energy, balanced action the
whole family can enjoy. It features a variety of activities conducted on
Saturdays during the school year starting in October and ending in
May. It includes, but not limited to the following:
1. NEW! Learn the art of breathing and hearing what your body says.
Our yoga master hones in on exercises that optimize control and trains
the body to focus on the task at hand. An added caveat is Self-
defense training from a Sensi Karate Black Belt Master
2. Learn dancing techniques taught by a masterful choreographer
of folklore who use proven methods of easy step, up-beat rhythm, and
coordination
3. Warm-up exercises that build up to high intensity aerobics by a
professional boxer-turned-physical trainer
Workshops in partnership with CHALK:
 Nutrition to promote healthy eating
 Information on available healthy activities and
programs in the area
DanceXercisE was created with children and parents in mind and the
dynamics of intergenerational activities and fun time. We promote
team work and family cohesiveness.
It's a family affair: children age range is 0-18. Mostly elementary
school-aged kids plus parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. enjoy
