Come with us as we return to South America this summer to volunteer at La Casa De Fe, a home for abandoned and special needs children in Shell, Ecuador.

Dance Class (Erin)

(Well it is 1:30 and the power is still on, so we thought we would post this while we had the chance.)


Sara and I had a lot of fun teaching dance classes to the kids ages three and up. We split them up into manageable-sized groups and brought them over to our house. Thankfully we have a large open living room with smooth tile flooring. I'm not sure if it was the dancing or just the fact that they got to go on a special oouting with us, but they were always very excited to come to class. One of the first things they say to us each morning is "teacher, I go? I go?


The dance class consisted of exercises (8 crunches and then running around like crazy to find a new spot was a favorite), a few warm-up dance combinations, combinations across the floor to help with memory and sequencing, learning a dance and playing games.










Here’s Ana practicing.

Freeze dance was probably my favorite part of class…


… especially with the little ones. Check out this video Gilmar, Ivan and Jefferson. (And I thought I was going to be teaching them).

The end of a good class :0)
