Sound Travels at Move Make Create ~ A Summer of Countries, Cultures and Healthy Habits for Kids

By June 4, 2016Local

Move Make Create is a fitness and arts studio for families, where instructors Seana Olvera and Fabiana Roller offer classes for children and adults that allow the m to share their love of music, movement, and the visual arts. This summer they are offering mini-camps that give children the opportunity to explore dance, healthy living, cultural learning and the visual arts. Classes meet at Flamencura Music and Dance, in Austin. Each week will focus on a different country or culture and feature a high energy Zumba Kids dance fitness class based on the rhythms of that culture. Kids can also enjoy games, learn about healthy food and fitness choices, and engage in art projects that incorporate each week’s theme.

Two mini-camps are offered this summer: The Zumba Kids Jr. Mini-Camp is for ages 4 to 6 and meets from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Wednesdays. The Zumba Kids Mini-Camp is for ages 7 to 11 and meets on from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Fridays. Each five-week session costs $70.

Move Make Create also offers Zumba classes for adults at 10:30 a.m., on Wednesdays and Fridays. These classes overlap with the art time for the mini-camps, so parents can drop their kids off and get their own chance to move to world rhythms. Adult classes are $8 each, with multi-class passes available at a discount.

Olvera says that Zumba Kids classes are a great way to promote kids’ well-being. “The Zumba Kids approach makes physical activity fun for kids who might not be interested in sports or traditional dance classes,” she says. “There is no competition, no performance pressure and no right or wrong way to do the moves—just cool music, a positive atmosphere and an age-appropriate approach to popular dance styles.”
