Greetings and Salutions!!

I have to confess, I formed this blog on July 13 and today (7/24)  is the first time I’m posting. That’s terrible

Nevertheless… about two weeks I was chatting with my friend Shamiso, who works for the Association to Benefit Children (please check out their website. This is a great organization. I mentioned I was looking for a place, in my neighborhood, to do  some volunteer work.  Sham was able to bring me in as a creative movement/yoga teacher for the next few weeks. AWESOME SAUCE.

I instructed two classes on Wednesday. I must say I was a lil’ nervous the night before.  As a former hood-ass  kid, I knew they would have no qualms about telling me if/when they were bored.   Fortunately my classes were a success, and the Micheal Jackson tunes I played were a hit!!!!

Lesson plan below:

walk, freeze, melt excersice. (add variation walk like stuck in mud, sizzle like bacon etc.)

Name Game- form circle and have each kiddie say name and create a movement with their name. Then everyone in the circle repeats name and movement.

Simon Says then lead to …Ballerina Says (show basic ballet positions)…. Yoga Teacher Says (show a few yoga poses)

Freeze Dance (using MJ’s history album)
