Dance Program Kicks Off
For the month of February, you might have heard the music a little bit louder than usual at the Madison-Morgan County Boys & Girls Club. To kick off Heart Healthy month, MMBGC invited Club parents in for a Dance class all month long.
“We wanted our parents to come to the Club, have a fun time learning and engage with our staff members,” Tabitha Lowe, MMBGC Program Director shared. “Our Club members loved having their parents in the Club and enjoyed watching their parents set aside reservations to jump in line and learn to dance to different styles.”
For Shontell W., a Club parent, the dance class was a thrill.
“I am enjoying every bit of this class because I am learning how to use my feet and my body in direction that I never could before,” she shared. “This class has really brought our Club moms together and I’ve gained new friends, which I hear my child share with me all the time – ‘I made a new friend.’”
“We really wanted our parents to see first-hand the kind of bonding and learning goes on inside our Clubs by offering the experience to them,” Tabitha shared.
“I have noticed that parents look forward to the class every week and that they recognize that this class helps them physically, emotionally, and mentally,” she added. “It’s been such a joy to teach this class alongside our parents.”
