KIDS FIT FEST is on a mission to spread the love of play through classic recess and backyard games all while getting tons of exercise! Remember the good old days? The days when you could play games outside on the street with kids from your neighborhood until it got dark or Mom called you in for dinner. Well, sadly those days are over. Elizabeth Ramey, Founder/Owner of Kids Fit Fest saw a need in our obesity-ridden, screentime-driven childhood population and has started a crusade to bring back the good old days of classic childhood games that we all played at home or at recess. Kids love to play games and with Kids Fit Fest games are played and exercise is accomplished all at once. This class is for ages 3-6 (by August 1, 2014). The class meets Mondays and/or Wednesdays, 1:00 – 2:00.
PRE-BALLET: Instructors from Creative Movement & Dance teach a class that is a structured program designed for the early development of ballet and movement. It precisely meets the needs and limitations of pre-schoolers by providing a carefully paced sequence of exercises to develop physical conditioning with poise and grace. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, the activities are presented through music. In the program, children learn self-discipline, listening skills, coordination skills, left and right discrimination, patterns in movement, and pre-ballet. This class is for ages 3 (by August 1, 2014). The class meets Mondays, 1:00 – 2:00.
CREATIVE KIDS ART: Artist Dawne Cueller will introduce your child to the wonders of color and texture, learning his/her primary colors and learning how to mix them to create secondary colors! They will make a new masterpiece each week, working with paint, beads, clay, pastels, fabric-paint and using re-purposed items to make the latest crafts. Art can get a bit messy and we will provide smocks; however, please don’t send your child in their Sunday best! This class is for ages 3-6 (by August 1, 2014). The class meets Tuesdays OR Wednesdays, 1:00 – 2:00.

TAP/BALLET: Instructors from Creative Movement & Dance teach a class divided with 20 minutes of tap and 25 minutes of ballet. Since ballet is the basis for all dance technique, the combination of both work hand in hand. The technical training is taught through ballet, which in turn helps teach the proper shifting of weight and patterns in movement for tap. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, all of the activities are executed to fun music. This class is for ages 4-6 (by August 1, 2014). The class meets Tuesdays, 1:00 – 2:00.
