If you’ve got pre-schoolers who like to get down and boogie this fun, hi-energy class is a great alternative to your run of the mill dance schools. The multi talented teacher Karina Hannan is a registered exercise therapist, personal trainer and a massage therapist. She has a passion for teaching kids about health and fitness and her enthusiasm is infectious. The 45 minute session is more like playtime to cheerful pop music than a structured class. Kids get to use props like hoola hoops, pom poms, balls and soft toys and parachutes. There’s a alot of mimicry with where the little ones growl like dinosaurs and flap their wings like birds etc. Parents are welcome to join in or not. I usually decline because Karina is such a good dancer it really hi-lights how un-cordinated I am. This morning the kids learnt a short uncomplicated routine to the Purple People Eater song and were promised a visit from his purpleness in the near future. Sounds like something to look forward to.
The classes are suitable for ages 2 to 5 and drop ins are welcome. Moreover there’s a refreshing lack of ballet “prissiness” to these sessions so boys should enjoy them as much as girls.
