Education:

Wonderful resource to introduce in Music curriculum and fight at the same time chidren's obesity.

Children and young people can become obese if they regularly don't practice some exercise. And dance is a good exercise, even in school.

I write often about the benefits of dancing in school. Physically and emotionally, dance is a good therapy for young people in the school. 

A good and enjoyable therapy!
