Hula Hoop Dance
Fridays at 3:15 pm-5:30 pm
We are offering a new and exciting program at the Club, Hula Hoop Dance Class, taught by Tulasi lagares. Tulasi has experience teaching dance, including hoop dance, and yoga. She has a background in Childhood Education, and loves to bring her passion and knowledge of dance to kids through her classes.
During our demo class last week, Club members got to experience the excitement of hoop dance and learn how to do fun tricks on and off the body. Hula Hoop Dance improves youth’s coordination, increases flexibility and builds core strength. However, these classes are so much fun that Club kids won’t even know they’re exercising! You will see their confidence and self-esteem skyrocket as they show off new tricks and mastered skills. This program can accommodate any level of student, from beginners to advanced and is offered to all Club kids. Have your child join in on the Hula Hoop fun!
