It’s that time again when we start considering resolutions for the coming year! Did you know that two of the top 10 resolutions every year are to “Spend More Time With Family” and “Lose Weight”? The latter being anything from dieting, exercise or simply getting more fit. I was thinking of these when I was given the chance to review the Move ‘N Groove Kids DVDs and how well they fit into both of the main commitments we seek to improve in ourselves. On one hand it is a program for kids that teaches them about exercise, problem solving and team-work and on the other it is an extremely fun way to spend time with your children while learning about healthy living.
Want your kids to dance, learn exercise and have fun all at the same time? That’s what Move ‘N Groove is all about! Move ‘N Groove is a creative movement program for children ages 2 to 7 years. Each episode is based on a curriculum developed by Deborah Damast a leading dance education expert who holds a faculty position at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Education as Master Teacher of Dance Education. Deborah’s dance curriculum and classes are highly acclaimed by teachers, parents, administrators at private studios, daycare centers and pre-schools.
Living in the Midwest it’s hard for us to get out during the winter months and get much exercise. The cold and I do not get along very well and the frigid air doesn’t make the outdoors tempting for wee ones. Move ‘N Groove Kids offers the fun of natural exercise for children in the warmth of home. It’s unique in that it has its own original score written by Cary Brown & Dan Schorr, the music intertwined with joyful play encourages creative expression for children. Kids love to dance, love to sing at the top of their lungs and run around as if they are trying to break free from their bodies, so it gives them a purposeful freedom.
It’s not enough that we just pop in an exercise program. It is beneficial to us as parents and to our families as a whole to work together towards healthy living goals and there is no better time to start than the New Year!
Making Family Goals and Resolutions are just as important as individual ones. You can purchase the DVDs in the Move ‘N Groove Kids Shop where they have them priced individually as well as the 3-Disc Set!
