The Drayton SC wanted to offer something fun and active for their CanSkaters this season. With the help of local dance instructors, they were able to include creative dance classes to all CanSkate participants with registration.
They were fortunate enough to have two local teenagers, both having performance backgrounds in dance and drama, to engage and motive their skaters.
30-minute sessions consisted of:
- Movement activities – jumps, gallops, etc.
- Simple steps to music – adding steps together to create a short series of steps to music
- Freeze dance game
Activities were kept short to keep skaters engaged and moving!
Costs were kept low by offering volunteer hours to local dance instructors.
What a great addition to their grassroots programming!
